Also known as Starflower, borage is a popular edible flower with a very mild cucumber-like flavour. Beautiful sprinkled on salads, freeze the flowers in ice cubes, or decorate your cocktail.
You can even chop young borage leaves and add them to your salad, or cook them like spinach.
Bees love borage flowers too.
Plant borage in full sun or partial shade. It will appreciate soil rich in organic matter, and it self-seeds readily.
Our borage plants are young and not yet flowering.
