Marjoram is a shrub-like herb that looks very similar to oregano, so similar in fact, that the two are often mistaken for each other. It has a sweet flavor. The sweetness is mixed with hints of pine and citrus.
Water regularly, but do not overwater.
Keep plants trimmed by cutting the leaves throughout the growing season.
When flower buds appear, cut the plants back low to the ground to stimulate new growth.
It’s the most common variety of basil with a wonderful spicy aroma. It is typically used in pesto and tomato-based dishes.
Plant in a sunny area and keep soil moist. Pruning off the tallest flowers as soon as possible will encourage foliage growth and keep the plant going strong. The leaves should be picked when the plant reaches 6 to 8 inches tall. When harvest early in the morning, the leaves are juicer.
Chamomile varieties have an aromatic, sweet, apple-like fragrance. Its flowers (similar in appearance to daisies) have a mild, subtly sweet, herbaceous, and earthy flavor. The leaves are also edible and may contain a slightly bitter and grassy taste.
It grows best in cool conditions and should be planted in part shade but will also grow in full sun. The soil should be dry.
