Planting and care tips Planting: Start now and start small. One-gallon sages planted now in advance of winter rains should be given a hole four times the width and two to three times the depth of the nursery container. Before planting, soak the hole three or four times and allow the water to infiltrate. Loosen any bound roots, then use existing soil (not garden center planting soil) to fill around the seedling. Ensure that the root crown is not buried. Watering: Deep water at a trickle for five minutes once a week for a month, then allow the rains to take over.

The current season is two days; permits are limited and dependent on the population counts. Steve Jones Glendora

Many gardens go without sage in California, but at the cost of soul. Sage is to the West what lavender is to France. Sage -- or, in botanical terms, salvia -- has it all: Its pungent aromas contain the signature scent of the Western chaparral. The silvers, grays and greens of its foliage anchor the local Craftsman color wheel, and the long-running show of flowers comes in a spectrum of white to pink to mauve to scarlet to purple to indigo to sky blue. Many sages have long had medicinal and culinary applications, but for modern Californians, they're a balm to the eyes.
