Review:

5 year old seeds, and I had 1 plant that sprouted. Actually transplanted quite well. It easily became the largest plant in the garden after only 4-5 weeks. Hundreds of blooms that the bees loved. Beneficial wasps also loved this plant. It was shaded half the day under the avocado trees, but still thrived. Unprepped soil and it still grew well! Tossing the flowers in salad or pasta made for a beautiful and tasty addition, flowers have a slight spice. Great for adding greens to the compost pile. Also, I took note from a previous reviewer. Burned myself pretty bad using the toaster oven (my skin crisped!) and used a borage poultice for 72 hours, and immediately relieved pain upon application, removed poultice and felt the burn, so I kept it on. no scarring and my skin is so hard to heal scars. Will continue to plant.

Review:

Grew Borage for the first time in zone 6b close to tomatoes to keep away the horn worms. Worked like a charm - not one horn worm this season! Plants grew very large and needed to be staked. Every plant was loaded with bees with the abundance of star-like blue flowers. We've already experienced frost here (Oct. 2015) and it hasn't even touched this plant - it's the only thing still thriving in the garden. I'll be planting much more of this next season.

Review:

I have tried to grow for years in the spring summer. Never could get it to stand our heat. So I had some seeds left from all my tries. I planted in the early fall for another try. FINALLY! They even survived several days of 20 degree freezes while covered. Today , Feb 23, they bloomed and are gorgeous!

Review:

The photo does not do this plant justice. Had to stake the plant mid season, total height was about three foot. One of the best surprises of the season. Leaves are rough.
