Marjoram is closely related to oregano, and is the more tender of the two plants, and for this reason is most often grown as an annual. Marjoram has a milder flavour too. In the kitchen, marjoram is often used fresh in Mediterranean type tomato sauces, and to flavour oils and vinegar.

Marjoram can be grown from seed in the spring, started on a sunny windowsill to get an early start to the growing season. Leaves are picked as desired until the onset of cold weather in autumn.
