Hi there!
I've got blackcurrant sage & regular sage in a pot & just noticed some orange dust like spots all over them. I'm not sure if there might be some tiny white bugs on there too...but they are not moving and don't really look like eggs.

Thankfully doesn't seen to be on any other plants!

Any ideas on how to fix would be much appreciated Smiling

Not sure where you are located so not sure what kind of weather you are having. We are hitting 92* every day and the insects have descended in full force. Orange could be spider mites, eggs, a condition known as rust... I have a hard time growing sage, too much humidity here, are these outdoors? Have you tried washing the leaves?
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!
