Planting is in April or in March if we plant inside. We have to press de seeds lightly on the soil but we don't have to cover them because they need light to germinate. We must choose a place in full sun most of the day. They don't like excess moisture, they prefer a dry and sunny conditions.
 
To harvest we cut the leaves we need with scissors or our hands. Although the first year we shouldn't collect the leaves. If we use them fresh is better, although it can be stored, frozen in a plastic bag or dry in a glass jar. The dried sage is stronger than fresh.
 
It has been used for centuries as a condiment, especially with meats and oven stews. You can even make sage tea. It is delicious with cheese and is often combined with thyme. It is also used with pickled fruits. All legumes are more digestives with some sage leaves in the cooking water. The flowers also can be used as garnish, on ice cubes to decorate drinks or with jams and preserves.
 
Sage has a lot of medical uses; strengthens the immune system, relieves sore throat is healing, avoid mental and physical exhaustion, and improves memory. It is very good for mild gastrointestinal discomfort, excessive sweating, coughing and rheumatism. The sage tea has a calming effect, helps digestion and relieves headache. Contributes to hypoglycemia, so it is beneficial for people with diabetes, and much appreciated in gastronomy.
 
This aromatic has a "mystical side" because since antiquity it has attributed magical properties. It was widespread belief that it granted immortality. In the Middle Ages it was said that if you planted it in the garden the inhabitants of the house would not be attacked by deadly dangers. Its leaves also provided wisdom and long life to those who eat them. Today, in some beliefs the sage leaves are used against the evil eye and to predict future romances.

We can plant it with cabbage, carrots and rosemary as it helps to scare away predators of these plants
