Start the seeds indoors 6 weeks before you plan to transplant them outside. Keep them in a sunny location to help with germination. Or sow the seeds directly outside after all danger of frost is gone. Choose a spot with good drainage in full sun. You can also grow sage in a container, indoors or outdoors.  Once the plant matures, pick the leaves as you need them.  If you want to dry your sage, cut 5-inch-long clippings before it flowers in early summer. Store the leaves in a shaded, dry area. Sage is a perennial herb and will grow for many years.
