"Seriously it smells of Pineapple. I am not joking!
I wish that technology would catch up with our herbs and allow you to smell this variety through the screen. It really does smell and taste like Pineapple. The flavour isn't overwhelming, so you could chop the leaves up and eat this with salad.
My favourite use for this herb is adding boiling water to the leaves and making a really lovely subtle pineapple tea.
OH, and as if this couldn't get any better, it has gorgeous bright red flowers!
Wow..... Pineapple Sage. Love this one."
Delivery options explained.
All herbs dispatched with Royal Mail first class delivery. This starts from £4.95 and ensures that your herbs reach you promptly and in good health.
If your plant is available on our surplus list it will be available as an option for immediate dispatch. We dispatch fresh herbs by first class Royal Mail delivery to ensure that they are not in the postal system for long. We will aim to dispatch orders at the beginning of the week following your order, on Monday or Tuesday of the week to ensure no delays over the weekend.
Herb plants are dispatched from April – August each year, but you can order the plants in advance all year round to ensure that you receive the unusual varieties that you desire. Plants will be dispatched on a ‘first come first served’ basis as soon as they are ready. Some varieties will be available a little later in the year from May onwards, and we will aim to dispatch all herbs in one shipment once all the varieties are ready. We will update you on the estimated date of your delivery as soon as we know.
If you have a preferred month for delivery i.e. you are having a new garden installed or building work conducted, please contact us and we will make a note on your order to try our best to accommodate that request.
