Hi Everyone
I haven't been on here for a long while, I have looked in occasionally but haven't logged in or posted anything. Hope everyone is well. I am hoping that you may be able to help identify a couple of plants that started growing in the garden last year. I believe one of them may be wild oregano/marjoram? If it is, is it edible?
I am wondering if the other is an allium? Any help will be appreciated. I just have to try and attach the photos now!:)Thanks in anticipation.



Bottom one an allium but not sure on top one. I looked up both choices for the first and from pics It's closer to Marjoram but I'm sure someone will know. If they can get on here that is!

I have purple Oregano and the leaf shape is identical to yours, so I think your are correct.

whether it is marjoram or oregano they are both edible.

the other is an allium but not edible.

Thank you all for your replies. It is good to know that the wild Oregano is edible as well, so thanks for your confirmation.
