Oops.. I have to disagree.
Why would you want to dig up salvia patens now? If they have survived they will grow in their time and it is early yet outside. If you are merely curious then resist. Watch out for slugs though....they love the new fresh shoots of patens. So, slug pellets and leave where they are
I have plants outside and inside. I suspect losses may be because of the wet over winter....
The time to dig up patens is autumn and then divide by gently pulling apart and pot up and leave in GH.
