Sweet Marjoram is also easy to grow and quite popular.  It adds unique flavor to soups and salad dressings, but the overwhelming characteristic of Sweet Marjoram is its fragrance.  When the herb is dried, it is often used as a sachet to sweeten linen closets, and clothes storage chests. 

Obviously, the list of Herbs which grow very well in Florida is quite lengthy, so we won’t be able to go into all of them here.  If you can keep in mind just a few points about her gardens maybe you can find out the virtues of some of these other herbs yourself.  Remember that herbs are generally very easy to grow and can be adapted to either outdoor gardens or indoor container growing condition.  And for just a small amount of effort, growing herbs can provide you with year round gardening satisfaction.
