Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


Giving your Sage full sun promotes the best flavor, at least 6 hours of sunlight a day has the best outcome. If you are located somewhere warmer the plant may appreciate some afternoon shade.

Frequent Watering


Sage prefers moderate moisture and has some drought tolerance so maintain even soil moisture, avoiding sogginess for young plants. Water established Sage when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil becomes dry. When watering, refrain from wetting the leaves to prevent mildew from developing.



Sandy, loamy soil with good drainage allow Sage to thrive. They cannot handle moisture retaining soil as it can cause root rot. Soil that is a little acidic to neutral pH is appealing to Sage. Fertilizer isn’t necessary for Sage as it can have a weaker flavor. If you choose to fertilize you can use an organic fertilizer for edible plants in the springtime or add compost to the soil.

Low Humidity


Sage can be hardy with their environments, even handling a bit of frost. Temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit is best for Sage to grow, they also prefer a moderate humidity, if your home is humid make sure there is enough air flow around the plant to prevent fungus growing.
