You could spare your marjoram by giving a chive selection to demonstrate your sorrel and sweet basil thereby revealing your tarragon or coriander
Marjoram (blushes) Chives (useful) Sorrel (affection) Sweet basil (good wishes) Tarragon (lasting interest) Coriander (hidden worth)
If herbs wouldn’t entice your intended then how about something red from ‘The difference is JustSeed ®’ range instead.......
Salvia ‘Blaze of Fire’ – forever mine
Sweet pea ‘Winston Churchill’ – delicate pleasure
Sunflower ‘Red Sun’ – adoration
Dianthus Sweet William ‘Sweet Red F1’ - pure and ardent love
