This is one of the best know herbs. It features an evergreen habit that needs cutting back every year to avoid going straggly, and it grows to a height of 60cm.
Sow indoors in spring. Sage seeds will germinate in 5-10 days. Since sage starts to grow slowly, you can seed indoors and transplant in late spring when plants are roughly 3 inches tall. Alternatively, sow outside in shallow drills when the soil has warmed, covering with fine soil. This perennial plant loves lots of sun in soil that drains well. Sage doesn't want too much water, because it begins to have mildew problems.
