I would like to multiply the Russian Sage plants and give my neighbor one.  Can this be safely done in the Fall?  I have read that spring clippings can be dipped in root hormones and grown in a green house but I don't have a greenhouse.  I live in the high desert of Colorado, 7000 ft. with very sandy soil and lots of sunlight.

If I can divide the Russian Sage Plant, how do I do it?

Can I collect seeds and plant them?

Will a divided Russian Sage Plant survive?

Yes you can, I have transplanted  my Russian sage several times, I don't cut my sage back until I have signs of new buds in the spring, and that's when I transplant, dig about a foot deep and gently pul new growt ( last years growt ) it will separate, then plant in new location, don't let transplant dry out, and I use standard garden fertilizer 20-20-20 or similar, no other special treatment , I live in a mountain region, zone 3.And my sage Is in front yard, what a show it makes, honey bees love them. It will only grow from transplants.
