Borage (Borago officinalis) seeds, organic

(1 customer review)


Family:  Borage (Boraginaceae)

Annual or overwintering annual.  80 days to maturity.

Native to the Mediterranean.  This vigorous self-seeder would seem weedy if it were less pretty.  As it is, its always a welcome sight in the garden, where it emerges when and where it likes.  Children love to eat the nodding, blue and purple flowers that gladden the heart. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and moist soils.  Sow in early spring, directly in the garden, and expect flowers by midsummer.

    Seeing these grow firsthand, I think these are now one of my favorite flowers! And the pollinators just loved them. One of my plants definitely surpassed 3 feet (it was quite sizable). I wanted to ask about the plant – stems and leaves turning black. Is this representative of the soil being too dry? I was my first time working with a truckload of compost I purchased for the garden. In hindsight, I think it wasn’t finished with its breakdown process and where I placed it, those sections seemed dry so I probably should have been more aggressive with watering at the outset. The blackening of the plants also occurred with borage from another company’s mix flower seed packet as well so that is why I’m thinking that the soil (purchased compost) was the issue.
