Sage – Salvia Officinalis (2 litres)
This lovely traditional herb is also a garden worthy perennial. There are endless culinary uses for it; soups, stews, chicken, omlettes and of course fresh stuffing. It also aids the digestion of fats. This is a woody shrub and so hard to produce as “baby” plants in small pots, we like to sell it as “ready to plant” and if you are not placing into the garden border you must pot it into a larger pot. It will flower well with tall purple tubular flowers and the pollinators go mad for it.
Growing into quite a large plant, dont over-prune, keep harvesting leaves but keep an eye on its size and prune into old wood once a year to promote vigour. We know it hates a soggy bottom and requires sun and a little drainage if you are gardening on heavy clay, its tough, completely hardy and one of our favourites.
