Exposure Silver sageSole pieno
The Silver sage should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The leaves of aromatic plants are used in the kitchen; if necessary letís remember to use only agricultural parasiticides, and letís follow the lacking period indicated on the label: if we spray a plant we can Ďt use its leaves for alimentary use for the period of time indicated, when the chemical product is harmful.These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.

Generalities Silver sage
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Silver sage is medium in size and 75 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Silver sage is a perennial herb plant.

Fertilization Silver sage
During the spring months letís add to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, some fertilizer for green plants, rich in nitrogen and potassium.

Watering Silver sageTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. To use these plants year round we can proceed with harvesting, in the spring or in the summer. The plants should be washed and dried well, then dehydrated, or frozen, to use them during the year.

Treatments Silver sage
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Silver sage
These plants need a substratum with an optimum drainage.
