Common Questions

How do you grow Sage from seed? You can start Sage from cuttings or divisions of established plants or start from seed. Some gardeners prefer to start Sage from cuttings due to the long 2 year maturing process of the herb plant. Sow your Sage seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost of the spring. The seeds will take 14-21 days to germinate and begin sprouting.

Does Sage grow back every year? Sage is a perennial herb that grows back year after year once established. Each year your harvest will get bigger and you may need to decide whether to cut your Sage plant back before it starts to grow wild.

Do Sage plants need full sun to grow? Sage prefers a slightly shaded spot in your garden to thrive. You can grow your herbs in containers or pots and move when necessary to a slightly shaded position.
