- You can stand the nursery pot in an attractive planter with holes in the base and a matching saucer.
- Or you could just stand the nursery pot on a saucer to simply collect the drainage water.
- Use a decorative planter that collects the water from the inner pot.
- Choose a warm, sheltered spot to stand your sage if keeping it potted. If you do this after the plants have been indoors for some time, you will have to harden them off again. Do this by leaving the plants outdoors for an hour longer each day, for five days.
- Replant the sage in a larger pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting compost. Remove the plant from the old pot and plant at the correct depth in the new pot. Fill the pot with more potting compost and press gently in.
- Or, replant the plant directly in the garden.
- Water generously immediately after planting.
