Sliced Pineapple

Nell JeanFebruary 11, 2014

Recently I was opening a can of sliced pineapple and thought, 'Why not plant Pineapple Sage in these cans?' I rinsed them out, punched holes in the bottom and was careful to save the labels.

I planted rooted cuttings that I took last fall in the cans. You can see a glass jar behind them with more cuttings.

Interesting, I haven't heard of pineapple sage before. I have apple mint & chocolate mint which makes a lovely smelling tea. What do you do with pineapple sage, use it like regular sage? Jan

Pineapple sage can be used in salads or as a garnish. It really smells like pineapple and is a wonderful addition to an herb garden.

It's been used in folk medicine in warm countries.

Rooted cuttings last spring.

I mostly use it for hummingbird and butterfly attraction. It blooms in late summer in the garden; in late winter in the greenhouse. Planting in cans is just a novelty until time to plant outside.

It is such a nice smell when you crush the leaves too. It adds to the 'zen' quality of the garden!

Cute idea, foxesearth!

Hey! This - foxesearth - was the only familiar name I saw on first scan. Is anybody else from the good ol' days still around?
