This handsome specimen of Variegated Sage is one that I have grown from a cutting I took on 5 February.
Of the Sage cuttings I took, only two each of the Purple and Variegated varieties survived, but they are now strong and sturdy, so I thought I would put a couple of them to good use. I have made two miniature Herb gardens with a couple of wide terracotta pots I had hanging around.
The centrepiece of each of these is a Sage plant, around which I have put Parsley and Purple Basil.
If the plants in these thrive they should make decorative yet useful additions to the burgeoning collection of items on my patio. I'm hoping that the green and gold Sage will look good next to the deep purple foliage of the Basil.
If you had no other space for gardening, surely you could make room for a couple of pots like this, couldn't you?
