Best soil for salvia recognita and potentillifolia
« on: November 13, 2020, 06:00:27 am »

Hi,
Some salvia is known to grow in a dry environment and in full sun.
how to prepare a dry soil to adapt to theses species ?
A mixture of sand and "normal" soil is enough?

im not sure to the exact species, but if you want drier substrate you could try mixing small rocks / perlite into the soil

I mixed soil from the garden, cutting soil, sand and perlite. I don't know why, potentillifolia don’t grow, the plant has leaves but the plant is tired and all the young scythe leaves have dried up...
I don't know if the spring will be favorable for new leaves..
