Choosing the right Sage plant for you
Sage is a highly versatile herb, and here at Season, we have grown three types that offer slightly different qualities.
Earthy, minty, citrusy and a little musky, Sage works well to add flavour to meats and potatoes. Purple Sage has a rich, savoury quality to it and can be added to soups and stews.
Finally, Tricolour Sage has a slightly more rosemary and pine taste. All varieties grow well in containers and can decorate your kitchen garden both indoors and outdoors.
