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.

Generalities Sage
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Sage Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Sage has a shrub- like development.

Exposure SageSole pieno
The Sage should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The leaves of aromatic plants are used in the kitchen; if necessary let’s remember to use only agricultural parasiticides, and let’s follow the lacking period indicated on the label: if we spray a plant we can ‘t use its leaves for alimentary use for the period of time indicated, when the chemical product is harmful.The Sage should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

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.
