When is a salvia plant ready?
    #2466402 - 03/24/04 04:45 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Lets say I have a salvia plant going. How old & tall should it be before I can start to cut of leaves? and how much can I cut off at a time?

To fall off ...

I read alot about cutting them. When should you cut them. The only place that stated anything claimed after 1 year ...

Correct?

It doesn't matter how old the plants are. Just make sure they are well established and have several branches coming off so that you can harvest some leaves, make cuttings so you have more plants, and then you'll have all new branches on the old plant within a few weeks. When it's warm, my salvia plants will usually put out 2-4 new leaves every week.

What I did when I still had salvia's was let them grow until I found that they were getting too big and then cut the top of the plant off at 20 cm above the ground or something. with the cut off pieces you can make many cuttings and at the same time you have a nice harvest.

here's what you can do:

The Salvia is ready for harvest when ever it suits you, meaning it will always be as potent as it is. As long as they have a nice amount of leaves after you cut them off (so the plant can continue to live).

it sure will sound kind of hippie but when you pick the leaves they wheter come easily or hardly... i pick only the easy coming ones, which are about 1/3 or a little less of each plant.

I think t0n3z is asking is when could he pick the leaves, not make cuttings.?

i AM talking about leaves and harvesting.
there's another school also...
you can grow many plants and once in a while 'kill' one.
sure new shoots will sprout from the base (and you can take cuttings out of the stems) but it's for who has at least a few big plants... (big being like 3 feet at least).

I have never done this, but I know that when you pick every leaf off of a basil plant for instance, you will have all new leaves all over the plant within two weeks. Has anyone ever done this with their Salvia and this happen. Me myself, I generally just wait for them to fall off. My plants are getting big enough for me to start harvesting. I just don't quite have the heart yet.

If you pick every leaf off and leave the apical meristem intact you'll have bare stalks until the meristem is sufficiently far away from the roots to promote lateral bud growth starting near the base.

Best rule is to harvest enough leaves but not to leave your plant bare.

I wouldnt say that necessarily. I havent grown this but I have read good information about Salvia and from what i understand you can take clones from it almost straight away... this goes for harvesting too.
As long as it has enough leaves to get the light it needs it will grow well (if the other conditions are right). I dont know how you're plant looks like but you can tell by looking at it if it has enough leaves, try harvesting a third of its leaves, it will most probably work out just fine, and if you clip the right places the plant will just get even bushier.
