How to Care for Salvia Lyrical Blues Plants
Before you purchase your Salvia Lyrical Blues plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come!
How do I plant my Salvia Lyrical Blues Plant?
When planting a Lyrical Blues Meadow Sage plant in a garden, we recommend digging a hole that is twice the width, but the same depth as the container the plant came in. Digging your hole too deep can cause the plant to drown, or develop root rot. Next, backfill the soil and don't forget to pat it down to avoid any air pockets from forming. It is crucial that you water your plant thoroughly after planting to ensure they receive enough moisture and nutrients to establish beautifully in your garden.
How do I prune Salvia Lyrical Blues?
When you are pruning your Salvia Lyrical Blues plant, we recommend that you wait until all the flowers are spent. You only need to prune your perennial once a year. However, you can remove dead or dying flowers throughout the plant's growing season. There is no need to prune your Salvia during the winter months.
What fertilizer is recommended for Lyrical Blues Meadow Sage?
This Meadow Sage plant grows best if it’s fertilized once in the spring before new growth emerges. We recommend using Bio-Tone Plus Starter Plus. This fertilizer is an incredible starter fertilizer that provides plants with a mycorrhizal fungus. This fungus naturally occurs and benefits the plant by creating a barrier between roots and pathogens that can harm the shrub.
How often do I water Lyrical Blues Sage?
After planting Salvia Lyrical Blues, give it a slow, deep watering. Doing so is critical, especially during the early stages of being in your yard. Be patient with this because most of the water that hits the soil at first will run off it takes time for the water to penetrate the soil and reach the plant roots. Water regularly while the root system is establishing, and more often if planted in hot climates or containers.
