Planting and care

Plant in average or enriched soil and fertilize as needed.

Snails and slugs find salvia to be a delicious treat, especially in moist conditions and when the plants are mulched.

Caring for Salvia Splendens

  • Most salvia like lots of sunlight, although a few species tolerate very light shade.
  • If your garden does not have adequate drainage, mix stones, gravel or lava rock into the bottom of the hole when you plant your salvia.
  • Using a trowel, dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the pot the salvia transplant is in.
  • Loosen the roots of the salvia, spread them out in the hole, and backfill with soil mixed with compost.
  • Be sure to water the young plants regularly until they are fully grown so that they don t dry out.
  • Prune the heavier, woody stems every spring.
