Description

What’s better than a plant that is as useful in a pot or border, as it is in the kitchen? This classic sage is exactly that; a beautiful smoky grey-purple foliage filler, and equally invaluable served with pumpkin and squash, as it is with pork and pasta. It’s dead easy to grow and evergreen, so there for harvesting right through winter too.

Care Tips

Ensure good drainage. After flowering, prune back to around half its size to help maintain a neat shape and encourage lots of new growth. If growing in a container plants will benefit from a regular liquid feed during the growing season.
