Planting and care

Most salvia like lots of sun, 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.
