I recommend this product
beautiful and robust!

I love Borage for their glowing flowers. I had great success using these seeds in my aeroponic tower. They got so robust I had to give them support!

Stunning plant!

Squirrels have been moving my seeds all spring. One of the borage plants is now in a rather small pot, yet it is huge, healthy, and covered with at least a hundred blooms. The humble bees are in love and so are we with the endless, gorgeous blue blooms.

Love my Borage

I was very happy how quickly my borage germinated. I was looking for a plant to attract bees to our yard. Right now my plants are only about 4" tall.

Borage is planted.

It is not up yet. We have had a very late Spring. I love the book I got: Native American Gardening.
