Description

Sage was a standard in kitchen gardens from colonial times, and Thomas Jefferson listed it for the Monticello garden in 1794.  This culinary Mediterranean shrub, grown since the 13th century, was thought to prolong life.  It's soft, gray-green foliage and spikes of lavender flowers, beloved by pollinators, make it an attractive ornamental. Deer resistant. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date at 70 degrees F.  Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after last frost in well-drained to dry soil.  Approximately 50 seeds per packet.
