Sage

Sage is a wonderful culinary herb and can be used fresh or dried.  You can grow sage from seed, seedling or cutting. If you grow from seed, note that the plant is slow to develop (up to 18 months).

Sage grows best in full sun, out of the wind, and prefers a relatively dry soil (i.e. avoid moist/wet soils).

It requires only minimal watering and doesn’t need a lot of fertiliser.

Sage can grow in the garden or in a pot. It is compatible with most other herbs (rosemary and lavender are good companions as they like similar conditions), broccoli, cabbages, cauliflowers and even carrots and beets.
