Sage (Salvia officinalis) is one of the easiest perennial herbs to grow. Also known as culinary sage, this semi-shrubby plant features wooly, gray-green, aromatic, ovate leaves that stretch up to 4 inches long. The leaves are commonly used fresh or dried in cooking and add an earthy and slightly peppery flavor. Spikes of blue-purple flowers appear in the summertime. Sage can be planted in the spring or fall, and it has a moderate growth rate.


When potting sage, use a quality well-draining potting mix. Depending on the size of container you start with, you might not have to repot. But if you begin to see roots growing out the drainage holes, move your plant to one pot size up. Gently ease it out of its previous pot, set it at the same depth in the new container, and fill around it with fresh potting mix. Then, water to settle the soil.

How to grow in pots: Growing sage in a pot is ideal if you don’t have the right soil or light conditions in a garden. You can easily move pots as needed to ensure proper sunlight exposure.

The container also should have drainage holes.
