Organic Herb Sage. Salvia officinalis.
Perennial shrub with tasty aromatic leaves and blue flowers that are very attractive to bees. Grows to about 60cms.
How to grow:
Sow seeds from March to June in good compost. Grow on until about 8cms tall and transplant into a weed free site. Continual use (pruning) will keep new shoots young and fresh.
Keep an eye out for caterpillars, thrip and mildew. Allow young plant to mature until its second year before harvesting.
Favourite ways to eat them:
Sage oil is used in aromatherapy – but must never be used in pregnancy. It’s the main flavour of sage and onion stuffing, without it stuffing’s just not the same.
Used since ancient times for warding off evil and clearing of haunted places it is one of the oldest used plants. Antiseptic and antifungal, an infusion is good for a mounthwash or gargle.
