Pineapple Sage Questions
Hi I have a pineapple sage plant that I bought 2 years ago. It is currently in an south-east facing enclosed balcony that is warmer than outside and is currently resuming growth. At this time of the year, it rarely drops below 40F. The plant is potted in a 12 inch pot.
The plant currently has only two stems of about 2 feet in length because the top part of the plant died in a cold spell a little more than a year ago and I have negelected it for the past year. This winter was warmer than usual so it didn't die back this year.
I would like to pot it up in fresh new potting soil this weekend. I want to grow it big this year, so I have the following questions:
How much should I water? Does pineapple sage like it dry or wet?
Would regualr potting soil be suitable?
How do you take cuttings from the plant and root it?
Is it normal for pineapple sage to lose its lower leaves as it grows?
Finally, I would like to cut back the 2 stems that the plant currently has. If I cut back the stems to the ground, dig it up, and repot it, would it grow back?
