Planting Calendar

Planting and Care

Salvias like full sun, but will tolerate partial shade.

They prefer well-drained soil. In fact, salvias thrive in poor soil and can take quite a lot of neglect.

Official advice is to plant salvias 1 to 2 feet apart, but we’ve also found that a group planted closer together can survive well and look stunning.

Into the Ground

  • Water the ground well, then make a small hole in the soil a little larger than the pot your salvia comes in.
  • Carefully remove the plant from its pot, gently loosen its roots with your fingers, and place it into the hole.
  • ‘Back fill’ soil around it and pat until your salvia is firmly tucked in.
  • Give it one last water for luck.

Into a Pot

Salvias do very well in pots.

  • Plant in good quality container compost, adding horticultural grit, or placing bits of broken pot/ stones in the bottom to ensure good drainage.
