Additional Information

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days.

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Start seeds 8 weeks before the last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds, 1/4" deep into individual containers, thinning to one plant per cell after germination. Transplant outside in the spring, spacing the plants 12-18" apart, in rows 18" apart.
Direct seed: Sow in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant seeds 1/4" deep, 1 seed every 2-3". Thin to stand 12-18" apart.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Will grow in most average to light, well-drained garden soils. Good drainage is essential for overwintering.

PLANT HEIGHT: 16-36".

PLANT SPACING: 12-18".

HARDINESS ZONES: Zones 6-9.

HARVEST: Individual leaves or branches can be harvested the first year once the plants have become established. In the second and subsequent years cut stems to within 6" of the base of the plant just as flowers are starting to open. Hang small bunches of white sage upside down to dry in a well-ventilated location out of direct sunlight.

Note: In areas where the temperature regularly falls below 10°F (-12°C), cut back and mulch the plants heavily in late fall or dig up, pot, and bring the plants inside to overwinter.

Once established, white sage can be propagated by making softwood cuttings in spring or early summer.
