Marjoram is a tender perennial grown as an annual. It cannot survive most winters. Sow outdoors in spring after last frost date in full sun to partial shade. Prepare soil and scatter seeds over surface; they require light to germinate. Water gently, and keep soil evenly moist until plants emerge.

Cut individual leaves at any time once plants are established, or cut entire plant to 4″ before it flowers. May be dried for later use.
