Borage (Borago officinalis)



Borage is grown as a garden flower and for its useful leaves and blooms. The leaves have a mild cucumber taste and are used to flavor salads, pickles, cream cheese spreads and cold drinks. The delicate blue flowers are used as an attractive garnish. Borage is commonly planted in flower gardens and attract bees. Borage is rich in minerals, and made in a tea, helps to reduce fever and ease chest colds. Plant direct seed beginning in mid-spring. To keep young plants coming, repeat sowing at monthly intervals. Young plants transplant well. Water regularly and fertilize when plants are 6" tall. Shear to keep plants tidy and compact. Clip fresh young leaves and stems as needed. Harvest flowers just after they open. Borage leaves and flowers are best used fresh.
