Sage is a delight in the garden. Planting sage seeds provides you with a beautiful, undemanding ornamental shrub with blue/green leaves. The aroma of sage is often associated with fall recipes. It is a perfect match for beans, squash, sausages and poultry. Plant sage seeds indoors, in spring with bottom heat and then plant out seedlings in a sunny, well drained location when summer has arrived. Exercise some patience as it can take several weeks for germination. Once sage has become established it is carefree and will provide plenty of leaves for fresh use or for drying.
