Salvia officinalis (Sage) is a handsome evergreen bush with attractive blue flowers in June-July as well as being a classic culinary and medicinal herb. Its leaves are used with onions in the traditional stuffing for duck. It also goes particularly well with chicken livers and pork. The flavour of the leaves is very strong so use sparingly! It grows around 60cm high by 45cm, thriving in well-drained soil in a warm, sunny, sheltered spot with other Mediterranean plants like lavenders and Phlomis.

Trim in the spring and again after flowering in summer to keep it compact and promote the growth of fresh new leaves.

Plant outdoors from April to August and harvest from May to November.
