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. Light Sage
We suggest growing the The Sage in a place where it's sheltered by frost; when all dangers of late freezings are gone we can locate them outdoors.

Pests 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. Mold Sage
We recommend cultivating these aromatic plants in a soft and light, very well drained, soil.
Seeing the quite contained development itís possible to grow these plants in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
