Sage Maxima boasts large oval leaves that are bursting with flavour. They can be used fresh or dried to enrich meat and stuffing dishes. The leaves also aid digestion and can be harvested fresh whenever they’re required.
Salvia Officinalis Maxima thrive in light, well-draining soil out of strong, chilly winds. This is a drought-tolerant plant that only needs to be watered during particularly dry spells. It prefers a spot in full sun but tolerates partial shade.
