You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Salvia sclarea. 1.1L coir pot.

This perennial sage from Italy and Syria offers a subtle flavour which is particularly lovely with eggs. It adds a savoury flavour to tangy and sweet foods. The flowers and young leaves also make a pleasant tea and can be used in drinks and jellies.

The plant has a long history of medicinal use. It is believed that the tea may help to reduce muscle spasms and help relieve gas and indigestion. It’s oestrogen-stimulating action may provide assistance with menopause related complaints such as hot flushes.

The essential oil is used in aromatherapy, massage oils and perfumes.

It is small growing (about 35cm H x 40cm W) and produces white to lilac flowers in summer. It prefers a full sun position in well draining soil and requires minimal watering.

Trim back any old or dead foliage when required.
