How to Care for Salvia May Night
Before you buy a Salvia May Night Plant, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
How do I plant my Salvia May Night?
When planting a May Night 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.
How do I prune Salvia May Night?
When pruning this plant, it is best to wait until after the Salvia flowers. One annual pruning is recommended, however you can remove dead or dying flowers throughout the growing season.
What fertilizer is recommended for May Night Meadow Sage?
This Sage Plany grows best if it’s fertilized once in the spring before new growth emerges. We recommend using Bio-Tone Plus Starter Plus, it is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. This fungus naturally occurs and provides benefits to the plant by creating a barrier between roots and pathogens that can harm the shrub.
How often do I water May Night Sage?
After planting the Salvia May Night, give it a slow, deep watering. This is important especially during the early stages of being planted 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.
