May is when sage really gets going by growing – producing lovely shoots.
Now is the time to start picking growing tips. This is welcome in the kitchen of course, but also encourages plants to produce more shoots from lower down their stems and, somewhat conveniently, become bushier and produce even more shoots for picking. Only give plants light grazing though at this time of year. Wait for the really vigorous growth later in summer for picking handfuls.
