Sage is such a great herb for stuffing and roasts.  This hardy, aromatic shrub looks gorgeous when mass-planted in the garden too. 

Urban Bounty Purple Sage a comes in a well established 1.5 litre pot - great for filling a space in your garden.   

What is Sage (Salvia)?  

Sage is a low growing herb that looks stunning in almost any garden setting, whether Mediterranean, cottage, elegant or coastal. It is also ideal for a courtyard garden, or in a pot on your patio. 

The Purple Sage variety has gorgeous smoky purple leaves that graduate to a soft green-grey as they mature.  The purple leaves are a great contrast for bright canna lilies and hibiscus in a tropical garden.   

Culinary Uses for Sage (Salvia)

This gorgeous herb is often used in European, Mediterranean, Mexican and middle eastern cuisine. We love it paired with other herbs, garlic and onions in stuffing, or with pasta in burnt butter sauce.  

Growing Conditions - Sage  


Sage prefers full sun and will grow to about 50 cm high and 30 cm wide. It is really important that it is planted in free draining sandy loam as it hates wet roots.  This easy-care plant is a drought tolerant herb and will also survive a light frost and light wind.  Plant in spring, summer or autumn but remember to protect young plants from slugs and snails.  

Cabbage, Beans, Carrots, Rosemary are good companion planting options.

        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.)

        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.

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

        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:

        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.
