Care Sage
This plant in the summer assumes a red colouring; it is small in size and can reach 90 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Sage develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. The Sage develops like a shrub. Feed Sage
Medicinal plants develop new shoots and foliage during the spring period, this is why it is advisable to fertilize periodically, every 15-20 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water. Temperatures SageSole pieno
The Sage can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable. For a balanced development of the The Sage it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.Seeing that the foliage of the aromatic plants is used for alimentary needs, we advise paying attention to the use of insecticides and anticryptogamics: letís use only those for agriculture and letís follow very strictly the lacking period written on the label before harvesting these plants. Irrigation SageTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 2-3 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. A great part of the aromatic plants are used fresh; during the spring and in the summer it is possible to harvest a good quantity of them, to conserve dehydrated or frozen, to use them during the cold months. Adversity Sage
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Substrate Sage
We recommend cultivating these aromatic plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
