Common Problems

1. My sage plant is turning yellow.
Inadequate watering can lead to leaves that turn yellow and eventually drop off. Make sure you are watering your sage plant moderately. Use a watering can to ensure an even shower.

2. Why does my sage leaves have brown spots?
Brown spots on your herbs is usually an indicator of over - watering or under - watering. Water your sage plant moderately. Make sure the top inch of the soil dries out before watering your plant again.

3. Why are my sage seeds not germinating?
Sage needs an evenly moist soil to grow. However, keep in mind that there is a very fine line between keeping the soil moist and over - watering. Over - watering will lead to failure in germination. Other reasons like improper soil or sowing your seed in too deep can also hamper the germination process.
