Borage (Organic)

Borago officinalis.

Borage is a traditional European herb used medicinally for centuries and as a flavoring for soups and drinks. Little blue flowers are perfect when added to salad, bringing a sweet floral note. Fuzzy leaves have an earthy cucumber taste, considered moist and cooling. We make an alcohol extract out of the leaves and flowering tops that is nice to sip for adrenal support. Some historical descriptions of borage remark on its ability to comfort the heart, dispel melancholy and give courage. Worth having around just for its beauty. Also attractive to bees and other pollinators. Borage is self seeding in the garden so choose a permanent spot for it.

1 g ≈ 60 seeds

In stock

Direct sow this annual 1/4″ deep, spring through summer, in rows that are 12″ apart. Thin to 8″ to 12″ in-row spacing. Germinates best in warm soil. Self-seeding so choose a permanent location.

Seed Saving

Seeds shatter easily. Harvest whole plants as seed begins to mature & spread thinly on a tarp to catch seeds as they dry. Stir/flip plants daily to avoid mold. Finish air-drying seed if necessary before sealing in airtight container.

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    Borage flowers always remind me of Lucky Charms flavor. I can’t wait for my plants to flower. They are growing great. I have them in a big grow bag.
