I had read that sage was hard to grow from seed. I order it this year to give it a try, and sowed it a little heavier because of what I had read. I think it was very close to 100% germination. I have been potting it for a week. I now have 21 sage plants that I am giving to everyone I know for mothers day and I still have 4 very nice pots for myself.
Excellent looking plants and very good germination. A++ rating.
