Sage Advice

By November 12, 2013

Follow me on:

I can't imagine not growing herbs. Even when there's nothing else to harvest in my vegetable garden, I can count on a handful of herbs to be ready and waiting at any time of year. Like thyme and oregano, my sage plants are four season wonders, but I have a special appreciation for them at Thanksgiving. My turkey and stuffing would not be the same without fresh sage.

A little sage goes a long way and it's so ridiculously easy to grow. Once established all you need to do is some judicious pruning in spring, to keep it from getting gangly. If you use it often enough, you may not need to prune it at all. You don't even need a vegetable or herb garden. It's such a pretty plant, it can go in any ornamental garden. So here are some tips for growing sage and some delicious recipes for using it.
