Salvia plants are relatively low-maintenance and easy to care for, but they still require some attention to keep them healthy and thriving. Here are some tips for caring for salvia plants:

Watering: Salvia plants prefer well-draining soil, so be sure not to over-water them. Water deeply once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions and soil moisture levels.

Pruning: Prune salvia plants twice a year. Once at the end of May when the first shoots appear and then again in Early June once flowering has finished, this is known as the ‘Hampton Chop’

Sunlight: Salvia plants prefer full sunlight, so make sure they get at least 6-8 hours of direct sun per day.

Soil: Salvia plants prefer well-draining soil, so make sure the soil in their planting area is loose and crumbly, with good drainage.

Mulching: In the autumn mulch around the base of the salvia with a layer of organic matter, such as shredded leaves or wood chips. This will give it protection during the winter and give it the best chance of survival
