Hi Sue,

Hi Sue, 
   I agree with Julius about the mucilage around the seed. Most, if not all Salvia produce this
mucilage when they get wet. It helps the seed stay moist even when the environment around the
seed dries a bit, therefore avoiding extremes of moisture content in the seed. Natures gel
granules surrounding a seed :-)
