Salvia Patens (Salvia patens (Sage))

These are looking at their best today - nice and warm with no rain.
Grown from the seeds Simbad sent me.

Thanks - it almost glows in full sun.

27 Jun, 2011

 

Wouldn't be glowing here right now we seem to have the thunderstorm right on top!

27 Jun, 2011

 

No such luck here......

27 Jun, 2011

 

Probably on it's way down the M40 right now!

Wow so beautiful on my wish list .

28 Jun, 2011

 

Give up - it obviously got lost!

Scotkat - we crossed in the ether net! Very, very easy from seed. These are a good source for seeds........

Useful to know good source for seeds in the light of recent news - if it is to be believed?

Super blue colour on this ! :o)

Food fads have a habit of biting us on the ass Sticki!
It is a stunner Terra.

28 Jun, 2011

 

Literally I think meanie!

Lovely Meanie glad they've done so well for you:-), you've beat me, no flowers open here yet.

28 Jun, 2011

 

Sown last year and over-wintered in the coldframe Simbad.

28 Jun, 2011

 

that's a beauty..

28 Jun, 2011

 

And easy too SL!

salvia again, think i may just do a salvia bed next year !!

28 Jun, 2011

 

I have six dotted around the beds, plus my Blackcurrant Sage too.

28 Jun, 2011

 

i see any special needs for them as i have a small'ish space 8' x 6'4" i think would be nice just salvia's ... now that i've got a liking to them !!

28 Jun, 2011

 

I like blackcurrant sage, it fascinates me, used to have one but I think it died

28 Jun, 2011

 

Not really - in fact a lot of them are pretty drought tolerant. Just be aware that some can be a little on the tender side. However, some such as s.patens produce tubers that can be lifted and stored as you would a Dahlia.

28 Jun, 2011

 

It is tender Sticki!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Wouldn't mind having one again, think I could try and look after it.

28 Jun, 2011

 

If it sets seeds Sticki.....

Salvias are becoming top of my list with the dry weather we have had , this is one of my favourites it's very lovely :o))

29 Jun, 2011

 

They certainly have a plus side!

29 Jun, 2011

 

If you do manage to collect any seed I would love to try one if you could spare it?

29 Jun, 2011

 

No probs!

29 Jun, 2011

 

Oh, thank you that would be good. I promise to find a bit of sun for it somehow!

29 Jun, 2011

 

Lovely Meanie, mine just coming out!
I grew some from seed this year, still quite small as yet but hope they will flower.

1 Jul, 2011

 

They should do - once they get going they'll grow rapidly.

1 Jul, 2011

 

Except a damn slug has just eaten half of it!

1 Jul, 2011

 

They have eaten all my marigolds - I'm not happy!

1 Jul, 2011

 

Squish it!

1 Jul, 2011

 

I put salt on them. Dont want to touch it!

1 Jul, 2011

 

Wooose!

1 Jul, 2011

 

Don't care! Salt works!

1 Jul, 2011

 

I have chucked ash from the woodburner, coffee grounds and tea bags at 'em! I am too wooosey for salt and not that good for the garden. I wish I had bought those half price beer traps now!

2 Jul, 2011

 

I think meanie should come over and catch them for you! I only put salt on when I find them on the paving.

2 Jul, 2011

 

At least with the beer traps they'd die happy Lulu,lol.

2 Jul, 2011

 

Last time I used beer, I put in in bowls...they just drank it, slept a bit, then slithered off!

3 Jul, 2011

 

Typical!

3 Jul, 2011

 

Obviously not heavy drinkers Lulu, or just been to their AA meeting :-))

3 Jul, 2011

 

A SlugAAy meeting!
