After I came home from the shore this weekend... my pineapple sage was brutally burned... hopefully cutting it back and keeping it watered will bring it back
Bob Dylan may not have had my herb garden in mind when he wrote, "Knocking on Heaven's Door"... but when I came home from the shore this weekend.... it was the certainly on my mind .... WE NEED RAIN DESPERATELY... AGAIN!!!!!
Unfortunately, when it comes to perennials or any plant for that matter, there isn't a lot you can do to alleviate sunburn. Your only choice is to remove or cut the sunburned leaves from the plant and water like hell. Make sure you have good drainage. You don't want to drown the plant to death... you then have another problem. Hope for new growth! You can use a light fertilizer. Now with fewer leaves you may need less water and you may want to watch and baby it a little just make sure it drains and stays moist. Ok.... I'll let you know how my herb garden progresses. Hopefully it didn't go too far south and will rebound. Till then it doesn't look like I'll be having fresh basil on my tomato and mozzarella,unless I pay for it.... BUMMER!
