Constructing a Garden TuteurConstructing a Garden Tuteur
By Bubbles, November 28, 2015

Garden tuteurs, or obelisks, give your garden upright forms to train vines and other climbing plants. They also add interest to an area by lifting the eye upward. Tuteurs can be as plain, or as ornate, as you wish them to be. As simple as a few bamboo canes lashed together, or as elaborate as a tall metal structure fused into a rather fussy design, these pyramid shaped frames have been part of gardens for hundreds of years.

Drying Seeds with Silica GelDrying Seeds with Silica Gel
By RickCorey, November 21, 2015

It can be slow to dry seeds thoroughly in humid weather and prevent mold. Seal partly dried seeds in a tightly sealed jar with a desiccant like silica gel to get them down to 15% eRH, which will give them the longest possible viable lifetime in storage.

Good flavor but not very productive. Small heads and it does produce side shoots. There are many varieties that perform better for me.

Mild flavor, pretty appearance, few seeds, 3 or more fruit per plant, mid-late harvest. Will grow again.

Seeds can likely be winter sown in warmer climates, as they do self-sow lightly here in growing zone 5. Perhaps lightly because seeds aren't 100% winter hardy here? Seeds prefer light for germination, so surface sowing is best by gently pressing seeds into soil/mix. Seeds generally germinate when temperatures are 68-70°F or above.

The only difference I can see in the Salvia 'Marble Arch' series and Salvia 'Clary' series, is plant height. To me, the flowering bracts look the same.
