I forgot to say how gorgeous they look in salad and decorating cakes!

Beautiful & vigorous plant

by

I direct sowed these borage seeds in one of my raised beds at the end of April and they have grown so vigorously and are now beginning to produce so many beautiful blooms in such a short time (late June)! I’m just beginning my gardening journey and am so pleased by how well these seeds have done - the germination rate was really high and even though one of the seedlings was munched on early on in their life they bounced back very quickly and are now a huge plant.

Beautiful and easy to grow

by

Borage has been a garden favorite of ours for over a decade. Easy to grow and they self-seed. I adore the gorgeous, delicate flowers and so do the bees. The white spines can be a little prickly and make my arms itchy so I use gloves and try to avoid skin contact. Highly recommend this lovely plant.
