SAGE GROWING GUIDANCE
What To Expect (Day 1) :
Sage is a slow growing plant, meaning that it takes longer to soak up water, so make sure to never overwater your garden and always allow for drainage between waterings. You can begin plucking individual leaves from your sage once your plant reaches about 3-4 inches in height.
Touchpoint 1 (Day 45) :
Your sage should now be about 3-4 inches tall, which means that you can begin plucking individual leaves from your plant here and there. To do so, pinch the bottom of each sage leaf between your thumb and forefinger and gently pull the leaf until it detaches from the stem (or use snips to cut directly below the leaf). Always make sure to evenly take from each plant and periodically prune your plant to promote growth. You should also perform basic maintenance on your sage plants by removing leaves that are yellow in hue, browning, shrunken, or dried up.
Harvest (Day 80) :
Your sage has now reached maturity. Sage can be harvested by pinching or snipping individual leaves one at a time, or by cutting back an entire stem at the base and later stripping off the leaves. To harvest a large amount of sage, cut the stems about 3-5 inches below their tips. Your sage should continue to regrow and produce if cared for and harvested properly.
