A native to Mediterranean and Asia, Sage or Salvia Officinalis is a green leafy herb from the mint family.

Sage is also a very sacred herb to the Native Americans who used it to ward off negativity from life. Sage plant grows about 2 feet tall and the oval leaves of a sage plant are rough and wrinkly on touch and the flowers feature a two-headed corolla. Sage is an attractive plant for a lot of pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Sage has a rather stimulating aromatic profile and sage leaves can be used in tinctures or tonics. The flowers of sage can be yellow, mauve or grey in color. Sage is also quite popular to flavor pasta and as a garnish for a variety of dishes. Sage is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, manganese, and fiber. Benefits of sage include antiinflammation, lowering cholesterol and improved dental health.
Growing guide for Sage

Planting instructions

Sow the seeds at least ¼ inch deep in rich loamy soil rich in nitrogen. Sage can also tolerate transplanting the seedlings once the seeds have germinated after 20-25 days of sowing.

Create a space in a pot and sow the seeds evenly and cover them a layer of soil. Water the pot/container regularly keeping in mind that the growing medium must be moist for seeds to get all the nutrients from the soil.

Keep the pot in the partial shade till germination and move to a sunny spot once the seeds have germinated. You can remove the week seedlings to promote a healthier pot of the herb.

Plant sage near cabbage or carrot as a companion plant but sow away from cucumber plants since they are sensitive to aromatic plants.

Growing Requirements

Pests & Diseases

Fungal diseases are one of the most common problems that one might face while growing sage due to crowding of plants and overwatering. One thumb rule to go by is to water the seedlings at the roots only. Additionally, mealybugs, whiteflies, and sap-sucking bugs can also affect the sage plant. Prune the affected part of the plant to address these issues or use a neem spray.

soil

Sage prefers rich loamy soil for better growth. The pH of the soil must range between 6.0 and 6.5.

Spot

Sage needs direct sunlight & relatively dry weather to grow well but can also tolerate mild shade. Make sure that the drainage of the pots is in place to avoid issues with roots. You can also consider adding a few pebbles at the bottom of the pot to improve drainage.

temperature

The ideal temperature for growing sage should range between 18–21°C(65–70°F).

watering

Sage is not too demanding when it comes to watering frequency. Water on alternate days once seeds have germinated.

how to harvest

Once the leaves have developed, you can harvest them easily by snipping the required quantity of the leaves with a pair of sharp scissors leaving at least 4-6 inches of the plant just above the ground.

You can also use dried sage by air drying small branches of sage upside down to dry in an airy location with sunlight.
