What are the pros? Beautiful, pollinators LOVE it

What are the cons? Prickly leaves & stem

Review:

I have completely fallen head over heels in love with Borage. This incredible medicinal herb and pollinator magnet is just an absolutely beautiful plant to include in your garden. Every day the flowers were filled with several types of bees AND butterflies. I grow it as a companion among my tomatoes, which love to use its strong stem to climb. Next season I plan on attempting to grow a special patch of it so I may reap the benefits of its medicinal uses. I highly recommend giving Borage a try!

What are the pros? Grew well, large

What are the cons? No flowers

Review:

I started these seeds directly in the garden and thinned them out to one plant once germinated. The plant is now huge, with a stem that is 1-2 inches in diameter, around 1.5 ft tall, and 1 foot wide. The leaves are huge and there are many...but it still hasn't flowered. I planted it in early-mid June and would expect by mid-August, it would have flowered. Maybe the nutrients in my soil encouraged leafy growth more than floral, but next year I don't think I will dedicate garden space to it. Perhaps I will throw some seeds around the yard though to see how they fare elsewhere.

Review:

Exactly what I hoped it would do. Started a few indoors and also some directly from seed and they both did well, flowering by late June after a cold springs. Planted too many and had to transplant some to a new place and they tolerated it, too. Love the taste and so far there are a lot of blooms. Will definitely try to plant more next year!

What are the pros? Fast growing

What are the cons? Prickly

Review:

They sprouted outdoors within a few days and grew BIG. I would thin the seedlings next time. I had to cut off huge branches after blooming, and the plants were so big, they didn't mind being pruned. Pretty, but the neighbor kids wouldn't pick because they are fuzzy and prickly. They got crowded so I composted them and started new seeds in August and they grew also. I would grow these again because they are fool proof Bee food.
