I trying this out this year. Dates back to Bible times. Grows wild in Jordan and Lebanon. Zone 6. Tastes like thyme, marjoram and oregano combined.

Has anyone tried this?

Interesting, Anderwood. I like trying new oreganos and I don't have Wild Zaatar (Origanum syriacum). Thumbs up

Did you start it from seed or plant? I can't even say how many things I've tried and failed the first time; but, I don't give up and often I will succeed the next time. Sometimes it's just a matter of putting it in shade, or giving it more sun, less sun, less water, things like that make the difference.

Don't give up!! Thumbs up Green Grin!

I started it from seed. I had a lot of other things going, and it got neglected a bit.
