Pruning sage

Denise McKenna asked 16 years ago

Hi Gerry, I have a sage plant in a container. The top of it has lovely green leaves, however, the bottom 3/4 of the plant has black leaves and looks terrible. Can I prune the plant back to encourage fresh growth lower down or should I take some slips to start again with a new plant? Thanks for your help,Denise

Leave it until spring, then cut back hard and use some of the cut pieces as cuttings or take some cuttings in late summer or autumn.
