An awesome little plant.

The flowers are beautiful the way they sit and they’re beautiful blue color. This plant just keeps getting better. A big pollinator attractor. Bees love it. It gets better it’s edible and it taste similar to cucumbers. The last thing about this is it repels the cabbage looper that attacks squash, cucumbers, broccoli, kale and it also repels the tomato horn worm. I love this little plant.

Wonderful plant

I don't have any problems with worms now that I grow this pretty plant with my tomatoes. Between the Borage and mint i was bug free, and everything smelled minty!

literally the bees' knees

Borage is super easy to grow and is a great bee attractor. If you want bees in your garden, plant borage and they will be buzzing.

Love It

These are growing well for me here in zone 8a 💚

Bee favorite

I enjoyed having large stalks of borage throughout the garden this year. They held their blooms all through fall as well. I plan to always plant these in spring. Make sure they get enough sun though. They grew fine in okay soil, but a solid amount of sun is necessary for strong plants. I had one come up under a tomato plant and it did not mature well.
