Thompson and Morgan Sage 75 seeds
This herb is ideal for rich foods plus traditional sage and onion stuffing. It also makes a substantial border plant, with textured, aromatic leaves and mauve-blue flowers.Ideal as a companion plant, sage is reputed for warding off carrot fly and is therefore useful planted next to carrots.
Sow these seeds in early spring in good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed. Germination usually takes 10-21 days at 21-24C. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 8cm pots, grow in cooler temperature and finally plant out 38cm apart into a sunny spot in free draining soil.
For best results, provide any well-drained soil in full sun whilst trying to avoid acidic soils. The flavour of the leaves will be best in warm, dry conditions.
To keep plants bushy, prune in spring to encourage new shoots with strong flavour.
