Plant Now: Borage


Borage (Borago officinalis) seeds can still be sown for their small intense blue flowers. Bees go potty for the flowers, so keep it close to plants that need pollinating. Sow seeds directly in the ground, in sun or part shade.

Borage is great for the vase – a star on its own or for setting off the other flowers.

    Love the blue borage it self seeds all through my garden and sometimes you get pink flowers too. As they are edible why add a pop of colour to salads too.

    There is also a white variety available from Kings Seeds.

  2. I also wash them and put them in ice cube trays, then fill with water and freeze. The cubes look lovely floating on top of a drink.
