Thanksgiving is upon us, which means the holiday season is in full swing. Plant the Wise (Salvia officinalis) Is a native of the Mediterranean. In ancient times it was used as a medicinal plant. Today, it is a staple of many dishes, dishes, and clothing.
The origin of the sages, or salvia, is reversed. Lavia For Salvia “Salvas” means “Salvation” and “Salvation” means “Healing.” Sage was considered a plant of immortality, goodness, health, and wisdom. Sage is a hardy plant. A typical gardener is hard for Zone 4.. The species can grow up to 2-1 / 2 feet in height, but there are many shorter species.
How it grows
Sage grows well in sunny places. Under moist conditions, heavy clay can retain excess moisture. If you have heavy clay soil, consider using a high bed or simply plant your sage in containers.
Once a wise person is established, he can withstand drought. In fact, like many plants, summer heat can fortify sages with essential oils.
Trim the plant a few times during the growing season to encourage young shoots and prevent thorns from growing and blooming.
If you grow sage as a permanent year, consider dividing the plants every two to three years to keep them healthy. Turn on the fertilizer, once or twice a season.
Pests and Problems
The wise man has a few problems. Animals such as deer and rabbits avoid sages because of their unique aroma and brightly colored leaves.
Do not destroy the wise, Good ventilation reduces the risk of possible diseases, such as mold mold.
You may notice something that looks like foam on all the branches of the garden. This is evidence of respiratory problems.
These tiny insects do not harm plants. Use lukewarm water to get them out by hand or to get them out.
The sage could not withstand extreme humidity or the plants would die from decay.
There are many ways to save your sages during the winter.
Consider bringing wise containers home and growing them in a sunny window.
The fig leaves are large enough to be used to dry the plants. Collect dried leaves like sprouts, tie the stems together and hang them upside down. You can also use a dryer.
Wisdom can also be ice.
It blends well in the garden
In many different forms of wisdom, this plant should not be limited to plants or gardens.
Sage blends well with any mixed floral border and looks especially good when paired with rose petals. If you are smart enough to allow a plant to bloom, the flowers will attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
There are many different species of color, including purple sage, three-color, different leaves of Icterina, and a wild-yellow leaf called “Beast”. The flavors are a little different from the usual vegetable sage, but if they are not colored, it is better to grow more than one variety!
Just be careful with strength; Some species are not as cold as the wise. Don’t limit yourself to the Thanksgiving dinner. Try sage with chicken, pork or fish dishes as well as soups, salads and vegetable butter. Time is a wise man!
