Exposure SageSole pieno
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. The Sage should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.The Sage should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

Fertilization 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.

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

Watering 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 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.
