No need to give them away. Charlotte will keep well, just don't wash them and store them cool and dark. My local farmer where I buy mine sells them for months.

If you're uncertain, copy your original post and paste it in after you've logged in! That way you don't loose it.

Hi Stacy, the Kew site says the following:

"Turkish sage is a hardy species of Phlomis, which can be grown in any good, well-drained soil, in sun or partial shade. It has a long flowering-period, stretching from late spring to early autumn. It does well in sunny borders in British gardens, and is drought tolerant when established. Propagation can be carried out by division of the clumps."

So it sounds like it doesn't really matter whether sun or partial shade. Apparently it does spread underground though.

We had the same problem when we owned a small cottage in France with 3000 m2. We found that we spent all our holidays just working on the house abd trying to keep the land under control, bit of a busmans holiday! After 5 years we sold it again.

I have one that flowers every year. It has to compete with Leillandi roots and never gets fed or watered unless it rains. I think they are a bit like buddleia, the less you do the better they are!
