Sweet marjoram is an annual with a low spreading. Leaves are gray-green and velvety.
Belonging to mint family, Marjoram also known as sweet Marjoram is an aromatic herb that has been grown in the Mediterranean, North Africa, and Western Asia for thousands of years. Sweet marjoram is sumilar to Oregano but with a sweeter, milder flavor.

Growing
Sweet marjoram is easily grown from seed or cuttings.  It prefers a full sun location and requires a well-drained soil.  Sweet marjoram tends to be a low spreading plant that benefits from being pruned back when it is 6-8 inches tall to encourage a bushy growth habit.  To enhance seed germination, soak seeds in water overnight.

Harvesting
Harvest marjoram when ball-like tips appear at the ends of the stems.  When the plant starts to bloom, cut plants back close to the ground to stimulate a new flush of growth. The second flush of growth tends to be a more desired crop than the first cutting. Air dry cut stems and store in sealed containers.
