Sage Herb Seed

Sage (Broadleaf) is a strongly flavored perennial herb.

One of the more important kitchen flavorings like Thanksgiving turkey.

Its commonest use is with strongly flavored meats, but even vegetarians will find many uses for it.

Sage grows 2'-3' in height.  It is a woody and hardy perennial herb. 

Growing Sage:  Sow directly in the garden 1/8 inch deep, in late spring. Thin to 2 feet apart when seedlings are 4 inches tall.  Sage likes full sun.  Morning sun is very important in that it dries the thick furry leaves preventing fungus.  If you live in a humid climate try putting some gravel underneath the plants.  The rocks hold the heat and slowly release it at night helping keep the leaves drier.  Sage also appreciates a rich, humus, sandy, well-draining soil.  Water ONLY when dry.  

Herbal Lemonade Boil 2 cups of water and pour over a 2" sprig of rosemary OR 1 heaping tablespoon of lavender flowers. Steep for 5-8 minutes and then remove herbs. Add 1/3 c. sugar or honey and stir to dissolve. Pour into a 1 quart jar and add 1/4 c. lemon juice. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Chill and taste, adjusting lemon and sweetness to taste. Serve over ice, with a small fresh sprig of rosemary or lavender if you like.
