Salvia officinalis (Sage) Herb Plant


Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

Sage (Salvia officinalis) Herb in 9cm Pot

Sage or Salvia officinalis is known by a variety of common names: Garden sage, Common sage, Kitchen Sage, and is a small perennial evergreen plant with woody stems.
Native to the Mediterranean region, though it has naturalized in many places throughout the world, Sage has a long history of medicinal and culinary use, and in modern times as an ornamental garden plant.
Preferring light, well-drained soil and full sun, Sage plants will often flourish all year, and should have leaves to harvest for much of the year.

Herb Usage

Whilst Sage is now mainly used as a culinary herb and an ornamental, it can be made into a tea by steeping a few sage leaves in hot water is today still used as a remedy for coughs and sore throats and is good for the digestion. As a culinary herb, Sage has a slight peppery taste, and is used to flavour fatty meats in the form of stuffing and sauces, and also adds flavour to soft cheeses and pickles. Also try frying the leaves in some hot oil until crispy and sprinkle over a pork chop or even a fried egg on toast with a sprinkling of chilli flakes - delicious!
