|Early spring is the best time to cut back Russian sage. At that time in can be cut back quite severely and will respond with healthy new growth. If you prune it back now you will sacrifice this year's blooms. I'd wait until next spring to cut it back. Russian sage will adapt to growing in most any soil type, as long as it is well draining. If you find the plants in your back yard are not growing well you can feed them in the springtime. Enjoy your landscape.
