If you've longed to top homemade pizza with fresh basil, or snip chives over your morning omelet on a whim, battling with a black thumb can be discouraging. But the best way to grow herbs isn't a mystery — it's a science, and you can totally improve on last year's failed attempt. All you need is this herb garden cheat sheet!

Sage is available in fresh or dried leaves whole, crumbled (rubbed) or ground. Fresh sage can be refrigerated for about a week, while dried should be kept in an airtight container and stored in a cool dry place. Sage is an herb from an evergreen shrub in the mint family. Fresh sage sprigs have long, narrow grayish green leaves and, although it is a member of the mint family, it has a musty yet smoky aroma.
