Sage

Sage has a strong flavor that’s used in a variety of dishes including sausages, poultry, meats, and with many different vegetables.

This is one of the best garden herbs because when protected, it will grow into a sturdy perennial shrub in most climates. The leaves are best when harvested before or just after blooming. Sage plants make excellent additions to herb gardens or ornamental borders. Used fresh or dried, sage is especially tasty with poultry and other meats.

• Choose a sunny location (6+ hours of sun) and dig a hole about two times as wide as your pot.

• Remove your plant from the pot by loosening the soil and tipping it out into your hand. Place your plant in the soil about as deep as it was in the pot.

• Refill the space around your plant with soil and press lightly to compact the dirt, keeping your plant firmly in the ground.

• Water immediately to settle the soil, and add more soil as needed, bringing it level to the rest of your garden.

Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your sage needs water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
