borage seeds

borage seeds to edible flowers.

Botanical name: Borago Officinalis

Used in ancient times to bring on courage and bravery, now growing borage is for cucumber tasting teas and flower decorations in a salad. Grow your own Borage (or bravery) from seeds.

why it's special:

  • Brings pollinators to your garden, so try planting near some strawberries to increase your yield.
  • Grows as quickly as an annual, yet will self-seed to colonise a small patch of your garden.
  • Grows fast in containers and you can be enjoying fresh herbs.

about borage

While not as common as thyme or basil, borage herb (Borago officinalis) is a unique plant for the culinary garden. It grows quickly as an annual but will colonize a corner of the garden by self-seeding and reappearing year after year.

in the records

The Greeks and Romans believed the herb was a source of courage and in medieval times flowers were embroidered into tapestries and the colours of jousting knights. The blooms were even floated in drinks consumed by the crusaders before battle
