This is my first year growing sage.. Everything I read says it has to flower before I am able to harvest the leaves??.... Is this true? Most everything says it will harvest by the end of summer, and here in the midwest the fall weather came much sooner then normal. It hasn't flowered at all-and I am wondering if it will?! Maybe I need to let it go another year before I try to harvest it?? Any input would be great! :)Answer Question

I have only found one site that actually stated a reason.. Which was that once it flowers it is *stronger* and more able to *take* the harvest well enough to survive through the winter.. I am not sure.. One of my lavender plants didn't flower either this year?! I really need to go to the library and find some good herb reference books..
