Aromatic and earthy, Sage is a common herb used to flavor dishes that incorporate other rich ingredients that can stand up to its bold taste. Use it to flavor stews, poultry, pork, or pasta dishes that use other strong-flavored ingredients like mushrooms, bacon, and cheese.

In addition to cooking, sage is also commonly used for tea or smoke smudging due to its mood-lifting aroma and anti-bacterial properties.

How to Grow Sage in Your GardenSoxx®

Sage can be slow-growing while it is first getting established and we recommend planting it from a purchased seedling instead of from seed. Plant seedlings in well-draining soil, about 12 inches apart in an area that receives full sun.

How to Harvest Sage

It is important to not overharvest sage, especially in the first year of growth. Harvest leaves as needed, pinching stems under the first or second set of leaves, allowing the plant to fill out and become more hardy. Once the plant is well established, it can be harvested a bit more frequently without compromising its future growth.
