Why Grow Salvia Seeds?

Salvias are always buzzing with the sound of bees, seasonally grown common Sage has a fantastic range of colours. Treated as half-hardy annuals, dotted through borders or in patio pots these plants are easy to grow from seed to garden. 

Sutton’s salvia seed packets are packed with seeds and have many sage varieties, try ‘Victoria’ with its amazing purple spikes, it makes a great bedding plant. Hardy annuals like ‘Bouquet mix’ with its pastel colours is a great border plant. For a real show-stopper use ‘Blaze of fire’ in containers or sweeping through borders.

Growing Salvias From Seed UK

Salvia seeds can be grown under glass or sown direct into soil. This will be dictated by the information on the packet pointing to whether they are half-hardy annual (HHA) or hardy annuals (HA). The former should be started in a propagator, the latter can be sown straight into the ground.

  • Sowing salvia seed in the spring for summer colours needs well-prepared soil or quality peat-free compost. Harden off your half-hardy Salvias making sure they are acclimated to the cooler air through the day but protected at night
  • For annual Salvias, plant into a fertile well-draining soil and add some slow-release organic pellets for feeding as they grow
  • Salvia seedlings are sunshine lovers, so give them a hot sunny spot. Irrigate when plants are young and fork in horticulture grit or soil improver on particularly heavy soils
  • A monthly liquid feed to encourage salvia flowering, applied in a water sprayer or watering can will be beneficial
  • As the plants begin to grow apply a light organic mulch, this will retain moisture, add nutrients and help keep the weeds down. This is especially beneficial on a light sandy soil.
  • Remove fading flowers will encourage Salvias to produce more blooms.

Bees and butterflies will love these plants and once Salvias are covered in flower you can hear the sound of buzzing coming from the plants as the Bees get busy. Salvias can be used as a carpet bedding plant, used in large drifts, dotted taller bedding plants such as Sweet peas on canes or Obelisks
