Start Blue Sage seeds indoors 10 weeks before last frost. Sow seed in starter trays, press the seed into the soil and barely cover. Blue Sage seeds needs light to germinate. 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.
After an extended period of blooming, trim Salvia Farinacea plant back for thicker, more compact foliage and a shorter flowering plant. The trim will delay flowering for a few days, but it is important in preventing uneven and sparse growth, and the blooms will come back in large amounts.
