Fertilization Sage
During the spring months let’s add to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, some fertilizer for green plants, rich in nitrogen and potassium.

Generalities Sage
The Sage is a perennial herb plant. The Sage is large in size and 1,5 m in height; in the autumn it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form.

Watering SageTenere asciutto
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. 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.

Treatments 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 Sage
These plants need a substratum with an optimum drainage.
