High in scent and pleasant to brush by your Salvia Amethyst Lips plants engages so many senses in summer with flowers lasting from June right into September.
Take cuttings of the leafy stems in the summer and pop the cuttings up into plant pots filled with a potting on compost like John Innes No.2. This increases the numbers of new plants you have at your disposal and is a great way to make savings while enjoying a rich flower garden.
In October cut down the stems to ground level and keep the roots of your plants warm and active with a surrounding layer of mulch on the soil surface.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
