I have some nice looking sage plants, but do not know when to pick them. They have not flowered yet, but I would like to dry some leaves.

To harvest sage, snip off a stem or branch and pull the leaves off. (The stems of your sage plant will become woody with age). Or, snip tender sprigs from the tops of the plants throughout the season. The more you pinch and snip, the bushier your plant will grow.
