    Well it's a write off. Another complete waste of money. Probably about 5 plants in the last few years failed. The new growth that was healthy gave me hope but now that is dying. Just wtaered it to revive the wilt but not having any of it.

    THERE IS NO REASON THIS SHOULD BE HAPPENING. IT DEFIES LOGIC !!! ( hence Angry typing)

    I've never got the watering right for sage in pots. Mine have always died too.
    They thrive here almost with total neglect in the soil...just the occasional watering in a heatwave.

    I think neglect is the key to sage success. Just seen an enormous very healthy looking sage growing in one of Waitrose's beds that probably hasn't ever been watered.

    All the ones in my garden have died.

    Default Yellow dots on shop bought sage plant

    Hi, does anyone know what yellow tiny dots mean on sage leaves?
    It wonít let me upload a picture but they donít look like fluffy mould, just tiny yellow dots all over some of the leaves.
    Thanks

    I bought a green sage from a garden centre and potted it up. Kept briefly in the greenhouse then moved to cold frame. I planted it out in the raised bed and it seems a lot happier there. I struggle to grow herbs in pots it is tricky to get the conditions right.
