    Hi, I want to grow some white sage. I have the seeds but none of them seem to be coming up. I read that it has a low germination rate, something like 30%, and that i should sow in sandy soil, but they still don't seem to wanna go. Has anyone out there grown white sage from a seed? Is there anything i can do to increase the germination rate?
    Thankyou
    Lots of love
    Rainer

    Hi Rainer,

    Unfortunately no. The seeds are not germinating as a result of them not having embryos for whatever reason.

    You may wait however. Keep the sand wet and you may get lucky. I've had it happen.
