I bought this Sage from Kenny’s in Fairhaven. But it sat for two weeks in the pot waiting for Paul to till out the Herb Garden. It was finally planted there on May 24, 2008. Doesn’t seem to have suffered any. This is a perennial so it was planted in the corner so it can have plenty of room to spread.
It did ok over the summer. The leaves on some stalks actually turned black and withered, but the rest of the plant stayed quite healthy. I wonder if it had to do with my lack of weeding! But I weeded, cut back the dead stalks, and for the rest of the summer it did just great!
