Borago officinalis

Decorative plant with pretty blue flowers. The leaves and the flowers picked at the start of flowering and should be dried quickly. Borage is not a fussy plant, but the richer the soil, the bushier the plant will be. It prefers full sun, and needs protection from wind as it is easily blown over. Once growth is established, it will continue to seed itself. Place plants close together so they can support each other.

Scatter in spring or early autumn. Sow in rows. Pat down the soil, when big enough thin out leaving just the strongest seedlings.
