Sage - Live Plant Frequently Asked Questions

Is Sage an annual or perennial plant?

Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a perennial plant. This means that it lives for more than two years, and in favorable growing conditions, it can continue to grow and produce leaves year after year. However, in extreme conditions, such as extreme cold and soggy wet soil, it may not be able to survive and die to never come back.

How much space should be needed to grow a Sage?

It is recommended to space sage plants at least 2-3 feet apart to allow for adequate growth and air circulation. This will also help prevent issues with pests or diseases. On the other hand, for containerized plants, make sure the container you are using is at least 12 inches wide and deep to support optimum root establishment.

 

What zone does Sage grow in?

Typically, sage thrives as a perennial in USDA growing zones 5-9. However, in colder climates or ranges outside the recommended ones, sage can be grown as an annual plant or in containers that can be easily brought indoors to survive the colder conditions.

 

When should I harvest Sage?

For both culinary and medicinal uses, sage is recommended to be harvested before it enters its blooming phase, typically when it has attained 4-6 inches in height. At this stage, the leaves are brimmed with all their vital phytonutrients and essential oils that give them their distinct flavor and medicinal benefits.

Does Sage flower or fruit?

Sage blooms in early summer, producing small blur or purple flowers that attract bees and other pollinating agents to visit the garden for pollination. Once pollinated and fertilized, these flowers transform into small brownish-black fruits bearing seeds.
