A small evergreen shrub with aromatic leaves used in cooking (mainly stuffing) and for medicinal purposes. A gargle with sage tea is said to cure a sore throat. Makes an attractive plant at the back of the border, though it needs full sun and a well-drained or dry soil. In late summer it has masses of purple / blue flowers. Trim very lightly after flowering to keep it from getting leggy. Please note: although we keep good stock of herbs, the herbs displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops at all times.
