Blue and White Flowered Mix Borage Seeds

$ 4.00

Among its many other benefits, borage is said to make a great restorative tea for curing hangovers! Culinary use of borage is common in the Mediterranean region. In Spain, perhaps the world leader in borraja cookery, you can eat the plant stir-fried with garlic and oil or cooked into crunchy crespillos. In Italy, the leaves are used to fill traditional ravioli. The flowers, whether fresh or candied, also make a beautiful decoration for desserts and cakes.

50 seeds

Do not fertilize because this will promote leaf growth and suppress flowering. Dead-heading or picking the flowers will prolong blooming.
