An essential herb for poultry and pork, and a great addition to any homemade breakfast sausage, sage is a pungent, easy to grow herb. Sage can be started from seed, but the best way to get it in your garden is with an established plant or a cutting. Plant two feet apart because sage can reach over two feet in height, and make sure it has full sun and sandy soil, matching its southwestern reputation. It is a perennial so once established expect sage in your garden every year with continued watering and fertilization. Sage is a good companion to cabbage and carrots, but should never be planted near cucumbers since it ruins their flavor.
