Sweet marjoram could be described as a mild oregano. Bushy and lush, you will want to harvest snips throughout the growing season and trim it all at the end of the growing season to dry for later use. In Germany, it’s a popular seasoning.

Keep soil moist after planting until plants are well-rooted. Once established, sweet marjoram prefers slightly dry soil. Water only during times of drought. In containers, irrigate whenever the top inch of soil is dry.
