Only wish I had planted more

What are the pros? Beautiful blooms and foliage

What are the cons? None

Review:

My only regret is that I didn't plant more! I did companion planting and placed these at end of a row, towards the back of the garden. They took off and when they bloomed , it was covered in pollinators! I wish I had planted a whole bed just for the joy of watching the bees. Very easy to grow in our clay soil, just added some mulch and direct sowed. Definitely on my wish list for next year!

Review:

Borage is such a wonderful plant, one of my favorite flowers. Bees from far and wide visited my garden this spring just because so much Borage was to be had. Now, in late August, it is coming up again on it's own aroud my beets. So happy!

Borage is Great Bee Forage

What are the pros? Bees love it!

What are the cons? Nothing!

Review:

I planted these all over my compound. I started some from seed, and direct sowed some outdoors. They grow really well. Their tiny flowers are not showy, but the bees love them. They are one of the few bee friendly plants I planted that my honey bees go for (the others are more popular with the bumble bees and other natives, but that's cool). These are probably best planted where you won't mind them spreading and self-seeding.

Review:

This grew like a weed! Took off, beautiful tasty leaves and flowers. Brightened up our gardens and our salads. We chopped up the leaves and added it to tomatoes and balsamic for a nice summer treat. This is going to be a year round garden addition for us from here on out.

A brave herb
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Pollinator friendly, pretty

What are the cons? Picky about site/soil

Review:

This is a neat looking herb. It does best in full sun with very good drainage. Can be tough to establish, but once it gets going it grows huge texture-rich leaves and stems with multiple blooms that pollinators love to visit. A Penn State Factsheet shared that Celtic warriors drank wine infused with Borage to give them courage. The herb has been associated with bravery since ancient times.
