Edible Plants Are Here!

Did you know we carry a variety of edible plants? In our Herb area, the Perennial table area and the Natives area look for Sages and Salvia's. Salvia comes from the Latin salvere, which means "to heal." 

Here are some of the varieties we have and their common uses:

  • Pineapple Sage = sage jelly, pound cake and corn bread
  • Grape Sage = the flowers and leaves are edible
  • Russian Sage = great in salads
  • Salvia Officinalis = used in tea as a digestive tonic; used in rubs for poultry, pork and sausage (it’s also great in casseroles and stuffing)
  • Black Sage = used in tea for gas pain and coughs

All sage flowers/leaves can also be used in potpourri's and sachets and to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

We have these in one gallon pots priced $8.99 to 9.99 each!
