  • 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.
