Thank you for visiting Herbs and Oils Hub!!
Chris at the Untrained Housewife has some great tips on growing Sage in your herb garden. Sage works well in a container garden too.
As she explains in her post:
“Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a shrubby perennial that’s not only an obvious herb choice for the kitchen, but it’s a great garden plant in its own right. It’s leaves have a thick, “bumpy” texture, and feel rather fuzzy. Depending on the variety, foliage colors can be bright green, blue-green, purple, or edged with cream or gold (“variegated”).
From spring through mid-summer, it blooms with small, blue-violet or lavender flowers which aren’t show-stoppers in our eyes, but they are extremely attractive to birds, butterflies, bees, and other pollinating insects and we gardeners applaud that. Sage is an evergreen herb will survive through the winter in zones down to 7, and it’s one of the easiest plants to grow. All of the attributes above puts sage at the top of my list for favorite garden herbs.”
