This sage is equally appreciated for its red flowers and the sweet pineapple scent of the foliage — this herb both looks and smells wonderful when cut for a flower arrangement. The pretty red flowers also look great in salads (True, you can eat them!). Pineapple sage leaves are often used dried or fresh in teas. Plants will grow up through the summer, when you can enjoy their leafy fragrance. Then, just as some other garden plants start to fade in late summer and early fall, pineapple sage will burst into bloom. This is a great plant for the fall garden because it attracts migrating hummingbirds and butterflies.

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
Where do my Bonnie Plants® come from?
Not far from where you are! We have over 70 growing stations spread across the country, so our plants don’t have to travel far to make it to your garden. That means less time spent in transit, which is better for the plants and for the planet, too. What’s more, each growing station grows varieties that tend to perform well in that particular region, so you don’t have to wonder whether the Bonnie veggies and herbs you buy are suitable for the area you live in.
Does Bonnie sell GMO plants?
No. Every plant we sell is grown from non-GMO seed.
How do I know if a plant is suitable to grow in my area?
Most of the vegetable and herb plants we sell on this site can be grown outdoors throughout the Continental US - however it is important to transplant your starter plant at the right time based on the weather and climate in your area.
Many of our herb plants can also be grown indoors so long as you have sufficient light and water. If you grow herbs indoors, you will still need to transplant your herb plants into properly sized containers with added potting mix.
What is a USDA Hardiness Zone?
The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones.
To learn more, visit https://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/
How do I care for my plants once I receive them?
Your plant will come with both a care sheet and a plant tag, which gives you information on plant spacing, watering, sunlight and other important considerations to get you started.
Bonnie also has in-depth "How to Grow" guides available here.
How often do I need to water my plants?
A good rule of thumb is an inch of water per week, either by rain or watering; in arid climates, double that. In hot weather, vegetables need even more water, up to about a half an inch extra per week for every 10 degrees that the average temperature is above 60 degrees. You can measure an inch of water by putting a rain gauge or other container under your sprinkler, soaker, drip, or other watering system. You’ve applied an inch of water when the vessel collects water an inch deep. Container gardens may need to be watered more frequently than in-ground garden beds, so check the soil each day and add water if the top inch or so of potting soil is dry.
Rosemary (1-Pack | 2.32 qt)
A native of the Mediterranean region and member of the mint family, rosemary is a lovely, easy-to-grow plant with great culinary and ornamental value. A striking, upright evergreen shrub that is winter-hardy in zones 8 to 10, it fills the air with its fragrance as soon as you brush your hand across the leaves. The key to growing rosemary is a well-drained soil that stays evenly moist at first; as the plant takes root it becomes increasingly drought tolerant. It is also excellent for containers, which lets gardeners in colder climates to bring it indoors in the winter. Unlike most herbs, rosemary has a stronger flavor when fresh than when dried. Cut sprigs anytime for fresh use. Trim it regularly to encourage tender new stems or the plant will get woody.It’s hard to have too much rosemary. The plant has so many uses that it will be enjoyed all the time. Just a few cut stems will fill a room with fragrance
Purple Coneflower (2-Pack)
If you crave terrific, multi-purpose plants for your garden, add purple coneflower to your beds. The large, striking blooms look gorgeous in mixed borders and cottage-style gardens, but they’re also easy to grow, heat and drought resistant, bloom for months, make gorgeous additions to floral arrangements, feed birds and pollinators—and offer health benefits, too! You’ve probably heard about the immune-boosting properties of Echinacea, the botanical name for coneflowers. Plant your own coneflowers so you can sip a cup of homegrown tea while watching the butterflies and hummingbirds sip nectar from the flowers and the finches snack on the seeds. Purple coneflowers make a great companion plant in the veggie garden—they not only attract pollinators, but they also beckon beneficial predatory insects that control pests like aphids and tomato hornworms. Plant in full sun to partial shade in rich, well-drained soil. Blooms June through October. Perennial zones 3 to 9.

You'll be growing a nutritional powerhouse when you plant edamame in your garden. This soybean is a low-fat, high-protein, high-fiber food packed with folate, phosphorus, magnesium, and disease-fighting isoflavones- and, like all plants sold by Bonnie, is non-GMO. Harvest when pods are young and contain at least two beans per pod. The beans are the edible part, but you need to cook the pods before the beans are fit to eat.This soybean loves the sun and warm soil. Set plants out about the same time you plant green beans or zucchini, after all danger of frost is past. Plants aren't very susceptible to pests or diseases, but critters like rabbits, deer, and groundhogs love them. Protect edamame plants if such varmints frequent your garden. Edamame has a narrow harvest window of three to seven days, after which the plant is finished. Use succession planting at 7- to 14-day intervals for a longer harvest window. Set individual plants 12 to 18 inches apart; wider spacing leads to higher yields. On average, expect 2.5 pounds of pods per plant.
Red Romaine Lettuce
This eye-catching romaine deserves a spot in both the vegetable and the flower garden. Colorful leaves start out green, then fade to a deep red-bronze as they mature. Red Romaine leaves bring a sweet, flavorful crunch to salads and sandwiches. The heads (if allowed to form) are thick enough to grill. Plants are slow to bolt and grow best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciate it in spring in hot climates. Resistant to mosaic virus.
