Sweet Marjoram is a hardy perennial culinary herb, very similar in flavor to oregano but a bit sweeter and milder. Marjoram blooms from late June through August and is known as a perennial plant in zones 8-10. This variety is somewhat cold-sensitive, so only move outside once the ground has sufficiently warmed up. The Marjoram flavor is a bit sweet with pine and citrus flavors. Popular in southern France where its leaves and shoots are used for seasoning. Often grows to 12 - 24-inch tall. It's best to plant Sweet Marjoram seeds indoors 6 weeks prior to the last spring frost and then transplant the start outdoors well into the spring (around May).Placing: Full Sun Planting Depth: 1/4-inch.
