Re: Save my sage!

I had the exact same thing happen. I read somewhere that if the plant does just die for no reason (ie. not over/under-watering) then it's a fungal or bacterial disease and it's best to lose the plant in the rubbish (not compost or green recycling). The stems will begin to go black and then it's all over. Sage can survive well in pots but occasionally you get a bum plant.

Re: Save my sage!

yikes 
I hope that doesn't happen to mine!
I'll avoid watering it for a couple of days, as suggested, to dry the soil out a little.
Fingers crossed!
I've never had a plant that's died for no reason. I've always come to the conclusion that I'M the reason! No matter how much research I do to find out how to take care of the plant, I just don't seem to get it right!
Mind you, I did have a small success once: I managed to grow a little advocado plant from the stone of a fruit I bought to make an advocado cheesecake. The plant grew to about 20cm and then suddenly lost it's leaves and dried up. So upsetting! sad

Re: Save my sage!

When you grow things from seed you always have a high % that die or just dont take so don't think it's you, lol, just have a few going at the same time. Fingers crossed for you. smile

Re: Save my sage!

THe diseases i read about were ones that had just multiplied on the plant - nothing you can do about it.

Ladies and gentlemen ... we have greenfly!

I guess that might be the problem!

Re: Save my sage!

You can get spray for greenfly. Sage like well drained soil, you prob only need to water twice a week at the most in the winter if you are keeping it indoors. My basil on needs watering once per week at the mo.
