Borage's blue, star-shaped edible flowers make it one of the prettiest herbs or ornamental plants. The flavor of the leaves & flowers resembles a cucumber. This is one of the best plant for bee's!  Plant Borage anywhere you need pollination, or just for the beauty & the bee's. Maturity 70 Days. Approx. 85 seeds/pack.

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS: Sow seeds in spring once weather has settled, 1/2 inch deep and 6 inches apart, in full sun. 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.

GROWING NOTES: Borage flowers have a delicate cucumber-like flavor and are pretty edible garnishes for both green and fruit salads and cool summer drinks. Freeze the sky-blue flowers inside ice cubes to accent herbal iced teas and festive punch, or candy them for decorations. Children love the starshaped flowers on birthday cakes or just picked fresh and eaten off the plant. In traditional herbal lore, borage was thought to lift the spirits and inspire courage. Enjoy these cheering plants all summer long.
