Companion Planting: Sage

Sage can be planted with cabbage, carrots, strawberries and tomatoes
to enhance their growth. Prune severely in the early spring to encourage
bushy growth. As they get older they can become very woody and less
productive. At this time you can divide the older plants using the new
exterior growth for new plants. Discard the old crown. Growing sage
from seed is a difficult task.

Sage is hardy from zone 4 to 8. Likes full sun and well drained garden soil.

Sage has natural antibacterial properties to it and has been used as a
preservative for meat and poultry. It has a somewhat bitter flavor to it.
The new leaves go well in salads, soup, marinades and stuffing but use sparingly.
Try a little sage on oranges or Brussels sprouts for an unusual flavor!

S. officinalis "Aurea"
Golden Sage a hardy perennial with light  green, almost chartreuse leaf edges to medium green inner markings with a very compact growth habit. It grows 18 inches high and can be used as a border plant or used as a highlight anywhere in full sun. Make sprays from sage to repel cabbage worms. Of course use the leaves for culinary purposes.

This is a type of tri colored sage. This one needs some more sun to develop a pink tinge along the leaf  edge. Another attractive, useful sage plant! Decorative in nature it maybe used as any other sage would.
