Botanical Interests Organic Borage Seeds

Annual. A handful of these little stars plucked from a deep blue sky, sprinkled on a summer salad may drive away all melancholy. Borage is an underused and nutritious herb. Its leaves can be steamed like spinach or chard or used raw in salads, iced beverages, and salad dressings. The stems can also be peeled and chopped and used like celery. The edible flowers can be used as a garnish on green or fruit salads. They can also be candied for winter use or as cake decorations. Also an attractive ornamental. Very easy to grow for a beginning gardener.

When to plant outside: Spring, after danger of heavy frost has passed or anytime in mild climates.

When to start inside: Not recommended. Seedlings do not transplant well.

Special Germination Instructions: Easy to grow from seed. Required darkness to germinate: make sure seeds are completely covered when sowing.

Harvesting Leaves should be harvested when young and eaten fresh (old leaves are tough and hairy). Flowers can be harvested anytime by taking a hold of the black center and pulling. Use fresh to decorate salads or cakes or freeze in ice cubes for drinks.
