#seedsaving #pineapplesage #seeds Normally two to four per pod, I just tip the branch into a cup and pinch the end and they fall right out. Probably one of the easiest plants to save seeds for next year. 😉
Most salvia seed need light to germinate. If you’re starting seeds indoors, moisten seed starting mix, then sprinkle seeds on top of the mix. Gently press them to make contact between moist mix and seed. Most gardeners cover their seeds with some type of plastic dome or sheeting to retain moisture and improve germination.
Pineapple sage enhances the natural flavors in strawberries, while building their natural resistance to disease and insects. Plant sage around you strawberry bed, or add a plant or too to your strawberry planters to improve flavor. #companionplanting
@PunkyKy I start checking it out shortly after it starts blooming, because things happen so fast! And as soon as seed pods pop open, dry out, or are visibly black, I pull them off and let them dry on the counter for a day before putting them in a container. 🙂
This plant produced so many seeds this year! But I was reading it is normally propagated by cuttings. @cyndi At any rate, I think I saw that on @demeterstouch page that they germinated quickly and without being stratified!
@Madgardener70 if you're going to clip off the whole stem, let them dry on a paper towel for couple days, then punch the seeds out. (It gets easier when they are fully dry.) seeds should be blackish when they are mature.
