Salvia patens 'Cambridge Blue'

Gentian Sage

An outstanding plant, which is a variant to the Mexican species. Exquisite large pale blue, hooded flowers on erect stems. Superb in borders, greenhouse or conservatory, and in milder areas tubers can be left outside. Otherwise simply lift plants in the autumn and store similarly to Dahlia tubers until spring, when you can plant them outside again. Height: 60-75cm (24-30 inches).

Sowing Time: February to June or September to October. Sow seed in pots or trays of moist seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Keep at a temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 14-30 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 45cm (18in) apart. For best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.
