We've been growing this sage from a plant ,with fabulous results, ie its growing faster than we are using it. But it has now flowered and we're not sure on what to do, cut the flower off or leave on ,cut the whole plant back or something else. Looking forward to your advice and recommendations. Thank you.

I recently read that sage is a perennial, so when flowering occurred I left it for some time, enjoying the pretty colour, then trimmed off those sections.By then I was most happy to be getting a lot of lovely new growth!

It probably can be cut back each year, google all these questions, that is how I learn things these days.
