At this time of year there is not a lot of colour in an English garden, although here in the far south-west green still dominates the landscape and you will still see a few flowers around. For other plants however, this is their time of year to show off. Pineapple Sage is one of them. My plant(s) live outdoors all summer long near the herb garden, but as it is classified as tender I move it into the conservatory over the wet winter months. It is very easy to propagate. Just cut it back at the end of flowering and stick the tips into compost for some new plants. I don’t use it in cooking and the pineapple scent is very faint, but the flowers are very cheerful during the winter months, even though difficult to capture in all their glory.
