Borage is an annual herb with pretty little vivid blue star shaped flowers and hairy grey/green leaves. It is very easy to grow and will reach a height of 30-50cm. Borage leaves can be added to salads and taste like cool cucumber

Latin NameBorago officinalis

Sowing Instructions – Form shallow drills at 30cm intervals in a well prepared bed, and sow thinly, just covering the seed before watering well. The seeds have a higher germination rate when temperatures are between 15 – 25C, so early sowings can be covered with a cloche. When big enough to handle, thin the seedlings to 25cm.

Hints and Tips – Borage is an annual plant, but it will self-seed readily in good conditions. If you don’t want more plants, dead-head the flowers as soon as they fade.
