Harvest seeds: Collecting sage seeds is surprisingly simple! The seeds grow in bell-shaped flowers along the sage stem. They are fairly large and can be easily seen in the plant. Once the seeds turn dark and flowers begin to turn brown, cut the flower stalk and place upside down in a paper bag. As the seeds ripen, they will fall into the bottom of the bag.
Label and store: Sage seeds last an average of 3 years.
Sage does best in full sun and in soil with excellent drainage. A pH of 5-8 is ideal for growing this delicious herb. Sage thrives in soil with moderate fertility and will do best when grown with other herbs as opposed to near vegetables. Sage is insect pollinated, and isolation distances should be taken into account for gardeners interested in saving seed.
