Answer: Since sage is very susceptable to damping off, sow in vermiculite, and water only from below. Keep at 65-75 degrees F. while germinating. Sow the seed on the surface of the soil and press lightly into the soil. Water from below until the soil surface changes color...which is an indication that the water has reached the soil surface. (Allow 4-21 days for germination.) Cover with a plastic bag. When germination is apparent, remove the bag. If germination does not occur, soil pathogens may have destroyed the seed. Be sure you are using sterile potting media. Oregano seed should be just covered with soil and kept between 55-65 degrees F. Germination should occur in about 10 days.
