Q.

How to care for a sage plant? Does it need to be pruned?

Zone SO19 7NR | MarieMary added on May 20, 2019 | Answered

Last summer I was given a sage plant in a plastic pot. As I don't know where to put it, it stayed there and it grew upward, with long and thin stalks and not many leaves. However it currently shows flowers. Should I prune it? Should I transfer it to a bigger pot with better soil? Or should I put it in the ground? In my small herbs raised bed? Or in a border?

You can prune after the flowers fade. These are very easy to care for, and don't require much care. They do prefer it dry and hot, so if you can't provide that in your area as we can here in many areas of the US, then you may want to grow this in a bigger container and keep it out of the rain.
