My Bloomin' Indoor Sage

Post  donnainzone5 on 1/13/2014, 3:26 pm

I transplanted my outdoor sage plant into a pot and moved it indoors after a mild frost or two.

Now, it's decided to bloom--while sitting on a windowsill!

Should I let it go to seed and regrow?  Or would it be better to pinch off the blossoms and hope for new growth on the existing plant?

I think it depends on if you need seeds or not.  In my neck of the woods, sage is a perennial so I don't need seeds.  But I love the flowers so I let it bloom.  Don't know if pinching sage works like basil or not.

CC,

I did pinch the sage plant back, first at Thanksgiving, then at Christmas. Blooming seems to be the result!

I don't know whether sage is hardy here in Central Oregon, which is why I brought it inside.

My sage comes back in Massachusetts, zone 6a. I don't remember if all the varieties come back - I know the common sage does.
