Sage has a long history of medical usage. In the Middle Ages, sage was a popular medicinal herb for many ailments. There is a Latin saying from that period of history, which goes, “Cur moriatur homo, cui salvia crescit in horto”, meaning “why should a man die when there is sage in the garden.”

Sage germinates in ten days. Cut sage for the first time when it is 6 cm tall, by cutting off the top pair of leaves.
From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. The plant can be cut a lot at once, as long as a few pairs of leaves remain under the cutting point. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest.
