Sow 2-3 seeds 1/4” deep in individual containers, thinning to one plant per container after germination. Transplant outside after the last frost, spacing 12” apart, in rows 18” apart. Direct seed: Sow in spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant seeds 1/4” deep, 1 seed every 1-2”. Thin to 6-12” apart.<br><br></h4><h2>Harvest<br></h2><h4>Individual leaves may be harvested the first year once plants have become established. In the second and following years, cut stems to within 6” of the base of the plant just as flowers are starting to open. Hang small bunches of sage upside down to dry in a well-ventilated location out of direct sunlight​​​.<br></h4><p><br></p></div>
