$1.85 $3.70
This 2'–3' tall, versatile herb is exquisite in the garden. In addition to attracting bees and other beneficial insects, it can be used as a cover crop. Edible, blue and sometimes pink flowers with a cucumber-like flavor can be used fresh to garnish dips, salads, and summer drinks, or candied with sugar for later use. The leaves and stems are also edible, delicious steamed like spinach or chard. Fairly drought tolerant once established.

Planting Instructions:
Direct sow borage seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed 1/2 inch deep and 6 inches apart, in full sun. These herb seeds prefer fine, well-worked moist soil. Keep seedbed evenly moist until germination occurs in 10 to 14 days. When the seedlings are well established, thin the plants to stand about 12 to 18 inches apart to give bushy plants room to mature. Borage will self-sow freely in the garden and can grow in poor soils. Seedlings do not transplant well because plants have a long, fragile tap root. Borage is considered to be a liberal self-sower, dropping its own herb seeds, so you can enjoy more plants next year.
