Tips for Growing Sage

  1. Choose the Right Location: Sage thrives in well-drained soil and requires at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Select a spot in your garden that meets these requirements.
  2. Prepare the Soil: Prior to planting, ensure that the soil is loose, fertile, and well-drained. You can add organic matter such as compost to improve the soil's quality.
  3. Planting Sage: Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of your sage plant. Place the plant in the hole, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Gently firm the soil around the plant.
  4. Watering: Sage prefers moderate watering and dry conditions. Water the plant thoroughly after planting and then water it deeply once a week, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
  5. Pruning: Regular pruning helps promote bushier growth and prevents the plant from becoming woody. Garden sage will often overwinter in manitoba's climate.
  6. Harvesting Sage: Sage leaves can be harvested as needed once the plant is established. Simply snip off the desired amount of leaves, leaving at least two sets of leaves on the stem to encourage new growth.
