Sage seeds from Mall Agro are a must-have for any herb and spice enthusiast. This perennial plant is dry and cold-resistant and has gray-green highly fragrant leaves. Sage is an evergreen shrub that can be grown as a spice and herb in the same place for 4-5 years. The inflorescences of the plant synthesize and accumulate an essential oil with a fine and lasting aroma.
In the first year, it is recommended to pick the leaves of sage once, in September. After the first year, the leaves can be picked up to three times a year when they reach a length of 8 cm. Sage is a drought-tolerant plant with highly developed and fibrous roots. It grows freely in dry and warm mountainous areas in the Mediterranean and Asia Minor.
When sowing sage seeds, it is important to avoid moist soil and over-watering. Sage is not very demanding when it comes to soil composition, but it is recommended to nourish the seeds with suitable fertilizers. Seeding is done in three stages: summer, late autumn (after October 15), and early spring sowing. If sowing in autumn, it is recommended to sow at a depth of 3-5 cm, as the seeds do not need pre-sowing in this case. Seeding should be done at a distance of 45-60 cm between rows.
In addition to its fragrant aroma, sage is also known for its medicinal properties. It is used to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive problems, sore throat, and skin irritations. It is also a natural insect repellent.
