BUYERS NOTES

A beautiful upright herb with rough leaves covered with silvery hairs and most attractive celestial blue flowers beloved by bees. Borage is an annual growing to 45-90cm (18-36in) which self seeds happily. Cooking: Add Borage to summer drinks and wines because of its, cucumber flavour. Chopped leaves make a healthy soup or YOUNG leaves can be dipped in batter and lightly fried until crisp. Finely cut leaves make a delicious sandwich filling. Companion Plant: Grow it close to tomatoes to attract bees which fertilise the tomato blooms, and anything else in the vegetable garden. Nature's Remedy: Borage is a fine source of calcium and potassium and is recommended for toning up the glandular system, and all bronchial, lung and chest disorders. Prolonged use is not advisable. Special Note: Always check with your doctor before using herbs for medicinal purposes.
