What’s Thanksgiving dinner without garden sage in the stuffing? Not only is it a staple during the holidays, but sage adds fantastic flavor to everyday sauces and roasts, too—as well as your favorite poultry, pork, and sausage recipes. This herbaceous perennial grows beautifully in well-drained garden beds and containers, and it thrives in fall and winter in hot climates, too. Place it where you can enjoy the fragrance when you gently rub the leaves. Pollinators love its pretty purple flowers. Unlike most herbs, the flavor of sage intensifies after blooming. Use it fresh, or dry harvests for future use. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Perennial in zones 5 to 8. Read More

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
