Sowing and Growing

For best results, direct sow seed after the last frost for summer blossoms. Prefers well-drained soil and will often reseed itself. A great companion plant for strawberries, Borage brings pollinators and repels harmful insects. 5 to 10 days for germination.


Once the plant is fully established, pick young leaves anytime. Leaves are most flavorful just after harvest. The longer they are allowed to dry, the more they lose their flavor. Allow the plant to flower and pick blossoms for culinary and/or aromatic uses.
