Sage is best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of clay or loam within an acidic, alkaline, or neutral pH balance. It is best planted in a sheltered position of full sun or part shade. Plant in full sun for the most flavourful leaves. Sage is suited to being planted in borders, beds, and containers within a coastal, kitchen or informal style garden.

Amend the soil with compost before planting. Space companion plants around 60cm (24in) apart from one another. If planting in pots, choose a pot that is around 30cm (12in) in diameter.
Water regularly particularly in dry spells. Avoid winter wet and overwatering as Sage do not like their roots being kept wet. Prune lightly in spring by removing any unsightly shoots.
It is possible to propagate Sage by softwood cuttings in spring, semi-hardwood cuttings in late summer or seed sown in spring.
