Salvia in a tiny yard

Zone San Jose, CA | Anonymous added on June 1, 2019 | Answered

My salvia plant has grown to be huge. I suspect it is because I keep pruning it back to control the size. It seems to grow several inches wider every week.It is about 4 feet wide and 2 feet tall. What should I do? I would remove it if that is what you recommend.

There are a couple of things that you can do here. One would be to dig up the plant, and saw it in half, or keep sawing until it is a manageable size root mass. Make sure to leave roots so that it can regrow. Essentially, you are dividing the plant, and can plant the other portions elsewhere, or give them away.
