one of my very favorite summer annual plants has to be borage. the beautiful blue flowers combined with the fuzzy white buds, which seem to attract buzzing bees, compliments my red, white and blue garden border.
i planted a whole garden pot of seeds this year, and seem to have more luck with the germination in a pot. now is the time for me to transplant these into my garden border. one of the great benefits of borage has to be that it self seeds. so, next year my garden border should contain a drift of blue borage.
borage is an easy plant to grow and provides a lovely addition to any herb garden.
