Keep the seeds and seedlings moist, but not soaked until established. When the danger of frost has passed, transplant the Blue Sage seedlings into the garden 12 - 18 inches apart in a sunny location.
Provide them plenty of water in dry weather. In areas where extreme temperatures can occur, Salvia may need light to moderate shade instead of full sun. Blue Sage will do best in areas that have moderate humidity.

They germinated in 9 days, at a rate of very nearly 100 percent. They all came up together; overnight.
Not sure how well they will bloom this year since I completely interrupted their growth and shocked them a bit by transplanting. But, the plants did snap back very quickly and continue to grow and thrive. Will definitely update review with pics if/when they bloom for me.
I've never had seeds germinate so fast and healthy! I started the seeds in some indoor potting mix since I was out of seed starting mix. But the results were fantastic.
Lots of seeds and easy to germinate. Very tiny seeds so I probably did more than I should have. I have been giving plants to anyone who wants them.
I planted these near Denver this spring, and by late summer, had a plot full of flowering plants.
