Planting & Care

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in spring once the weather has settled, 1/2" deep and 6" apart in full sun. Keep seedbed evenly moist until germination occurs in 10 - 14 days. When the seedlings are well established, thin the plants to stand about 12 - 18" 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.

Harvest & Use: 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 star-shaped 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.
