A fast-growing, self-seeding, European annual herb with a long history of medicinal and culinary uses, Borage was observed growing in American gardens as early as 1709 by John Lawson in A New Voyage to Carolina. The clear-blue, star-shaped flowers have a light cucumber flavor and make a beautiful addition to salads. The cucumber-flavored leaves and stems can be consumed raw, steamed, or sautéed, in moderation.

Borage does not respond well to transplanting; direct sow seeds when soil temperatures climb above 70 degrees F in spring. Repeat every four weeks. Approximately 75 seeds per packet.
