What is Tat Soi (Tah Tsai)?
Tat soi is the perfect leafy green vegetable for Asian cuisine lovers wit spoon-shaped glossy green leaves.  It is technically a non-heading Chinese mustard and part of the cabbage family.  Expect Tat Soi to grow to about 20 cm high and 30 cm wide (it will grow taller in warm temperatures and broader in cool weather).  If you haven't got much space, Tah Tsai is perfectly happy in a courtyard garden or a pot. 
Culinary Uses for Tat Soi
This leafy green has a similar flavour to bok choi.  It can be served raw, or lightly cooked.  Try it in a pesto, as a salad garnish, in a stir fry, or in an Asian broth.
Growing Conditions - Tat Soi (Tah Tsai) 
Tat soi is an easy-care plant that loves rich, free draining soil and a spot that is in sun- part shade.  It is a very hardy plant and will survive wind, a light frost, or a mild drought once established.  Plant it in your garden from spring through to autumn to ensure a steady supply in your kitchen over summer and winter! Marjoram, beetroot, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, peas, strawberries and viola are good companion planting options.

    We offer a replacement guarantee

    To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

    If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


    Where do you deliver to? 

    We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

    South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

    While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

    We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

    Do you deliver to post office boxes?

    Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
