Borage, White (Borago officinalis bianca) - 50 Seeeds

$1.95 $3.90
Grow this decorative plant from Borage seeds. Borage herb seeds produce these beautiful star-shaped white flowers and textured leaves. Borage herb benefits include beauty in the garden, attraction for bees and a great addition to summer drinks. Borage Bianca is compact, later flowering and sturdier than standard borage and is excellent in pots. Plant this unusual 24 inch annual herb for its pure ornamental value, to attract much-coveted bees to your garden, and to harvest for teas and other summer drinks. When young, the cucumber flavored leaves may be added to salads. The flowers (which are excellent for cutting and have a long vase-life) are used as garnishes (in cold drinks like ice tea and lemonade) or added to salads. Cut sprays of Borage all summer long to garnish and add flavor to cold drinks and salads! Borage plants are also considered to be a great companion plant for vegetable gardens and orchards because of the attraction of bees to the blue flowers.

Planting Instructions:
Direct sow borage seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed 1/2 inch deep and 6 inches apart, in full sun. These herb seeds prefer fine, well-worked moist soil. Keep seedbed evenly moist until germination occurs in 10 to 14 days. When the seedlings are well established, thin the plants to stand about 12 to 18 inches apart to give bushy plants room to mature. Borage will self-sow freely in the garden and can grow in poor soils. Seedlings do not transplant well because plants have a long, fragile tap root. Borage is considered to be a liberal self-sower, dropping its own herb seeds, so you can enjoy more plants next year. Seeds per Plant: 5-6. Plant Spacing: 8-10 inch.
