If you plan on using seeds, start them indoors as they are small and slow to germinate. Wait until they reach at least three inches in height before transplanting out into the garden after all danger of frost has passed. Marjoram can also be started from cuttings obtained late in the spring.
Marjoram retains most of its flavor when dried, be sure to dry it out of direct sunlight to preserve both its color and flavor. Store in airtight containers.
