Culinary Sage plant and cut flower suggestions

Post  gardenwriter on 5/20/2010, 1:51 pm

I over-wintered a sage plant in the garage and instead of dying--as expected--it is now blooming. Quite nice!

What do we know about putting sage in a SFG? And are the flowers to be encouraged or nipped?

My new stone walled SFG is gorgeous (pictures have been posted), but OMG do I have a lot of planting to do. I'd like to include some annual flowers besides the ones mentioned in the book, cutting flowers in particular. Any recommendations?

This looks like a duplicate post -- see another by the same or similar name that has been posted to this evening.

Hmm, I didn't see a duplicate post, so I'll respond to this one.

I don't really have any input on the sage, but I do have some ideas for cut flowers. How about cosmos, echinacea, sunflowers, or dahlias?

I love zinnias for cutting.
