PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Salvia x jamensis Syn. greggii, Red|
|Autumn sage, red|
|A lovely red perennial salvia, which is usually hardy, though winter protection is recommended in colder parts of the UK.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow at any time, but as soon as possible on receipt, in good, soil-based compost. Barely cover with fine grit or compost. Germination will often be improved by keeping in a propagator at 15-20C, but good results should be obtained in a cold frame or cold greenhouse, and in fact a cold period followed by warmth may be beneficial. Grow seedlings on in individual pots, planting out after all danger of frost has passed.|
