Attractive ground cover herb with yellow and green leaves and a flavour like a mild oregano (which it is closely related to). Marjoram is cultivated for its aromatic leaves, either green or dry, for culinary purposes; the tops are cut as the plants begin to flower and are dried slowly in the shade. It is often used in herb combinations such as herbes de Provence and za’atar. The flowering leaves and tops of marjoram are steam-distilled to produce an essential oil. It has many beneficial chemical compounds. Use leaves fresh or dried for fish, cheese, tomato and meat dishes, seasoning soups, stews, dressings, sauces, and for herbal teas. 15cm. 9cm pot. Certified organic plant.
