Hi! I'm having my class of kids plant sage seeds in biodegradable seed-starter pots this Sunday. What care should they receive until they're big enough to repot/it's warm enough to plant outside?
Hennepin County Minnesota
Sage can be grown from seed just as any other garden plant although some suggest a better success rate if you use cuttings instead.
- They should be started about 6-10 weeks before the last frost (in Minnesota this is around May 1-May 10).
- Plant the seeds/cuttings 24 to 30 inches apart. For best growth, the soil should be between 60º and 70ºF. Plants should grow to be between 12 and 30 inches in height.
I hope this is helpful. Please contact AaE again if you have further questions.
