Love these plants

These germinated great. I have started these both in the house and and in the garden. They attract bees like crazy! They are prolific with seeds though and you will have lots of volunteers the next year. They seem to tolerate transplant pretty well when small too. I have dug them up from undesirable locations and moved them with no problems. Will plant again in the future for sure!

Borage

Unfortunely we had a heat wave, and I grew them in our greenhouse. A few plants sprouted so that’s more than I expected. Wish you could see our other seeds we bought growing. It’s a good thing we have a large garden
