Borago officinalis

Garden Care

An herbaceous annual, overwintering and hardy.  A prolific self-seeder.  Borage will do well in the spring and die back when the temperature exceeds 90+ F.  Toss out seeds in the fall or early spring, cover with a wee bit of soil and space 12-18” apart.  She does well in full sun with a sandy loam or regular moist soil.  She will also reseed a second flush in the fall but there is not enough time to flower.  The honeybees love her, and the flowers taste like cucumbers and are great in salads and frozen in iced cubes.
