(Best months for growing Sage in USA - Zone 5a regions)
P = Sow seed
Sage grows well from seeds but it is slow developing.
One plant will usually be enough for the average household.
A plant grown from a cutting will be ready to use in about 3 months.
Stake or protect from strong winds, otherwise the plant may snap off the main stem.
Sage will grow almost anywhere as long as it is in full sun for most of the day. Sage does not like soil that is moist all the time - Avoid frequent watering even in the middle of the summer.
The leaves are used to flavour stuffing and meat dishes.
Sage keeps well if dried.
We cannot help if you are overrun by giant slugs.
