Garden Sage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't write reviews, but this was to good to be true. Live in Saint Louis area cold winters snow nothing to crazy, but was starting the garden and left some plants in the garden from last year. One of those was sage from Bonnie Plants. I pulled this plant out in early March through it to the side of the garden and forgot it. Started to plant my new plants late April and this thing started to sprout new growth so planted it back in the garden and it is growing like a champ!
