Basic care information for Culinary Sage
Sage doesn’t need to be watered as frequently as other garden vegetables. Check the plant every day when daytime temperatures are above 70F. Follow the instructions on the bag tag for applying water. These plants do best with a consistent amount of water over time.
Plants are frost resistant, but it’s still a good idea to cover them when the temperatures drop below freezing.
