    Spikes of lilac-blue flowers in early to mid-summer and grey-green aromatic leaves. Sage's handsome foliage makes a fabulous and robust edge for a sunny herb garden or mini potager. Collected before the plant has flowered and freshly chopped, the aromatic leaves are valuable for flavouring stuffings, herbal teas, meat dishes and herb butter

  • Garden care: To encourage a plentiful supply of young foliage gather the leaves regularly and prune lightly in July after flowering.
