Origanum Majorana is a popular herb closely related to oregano. It boasts slightly hairy, oval shaped, grey-green leaves. In summer, tall upright stems blossom small tubular, knot-shaped flowers. The blooms are usually white but can occasionally come out pink, and are a magnet for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
Commonly known as Sweet Marjoram, this herb is often used in the kitchen to flavour meat, poultry, tomato, and pasta dishes. It is a staple of Greek and Italian cuisines and works well in salads and dressings.
Sweet Marjoram is half-hardy in the UK and is often grown as an annual plant. However, it can be brought indoors and placed on a kitchen windowsill for a year-round herb supply.
