Growing Calendar for Borage Herb Seeds - Summer Skies
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Growing a useful range of herbs from seed is so easy!
Grow them in the border among your flowers, in a special herb bed, or simply in pots by the back door. You can even grow some on your kitchen windowsill. They are easy to dry and even easier to freeze.
Borage Summer Skies is a blend of the usual intense blue and the more unusual white forms of this cottage garden favourite.
The young leaves can be used in salads, and the star-like blue flowers can be added to drinks or salads. Borage flowers frozen in ice cubes are perfect to perk up your Pimms!
Butterflies and bees adore it!
I appreciated prompt dispatch. I ordered the seeds for a neighbour who had done some jobs for me and asked me for some borage plants from my garden. The Borage plants in my garden wilted when I tried to transplant them so I decided to order some seeds to give to my neighbour. I was pleased to see that you stocked them and would send them post free that weekend.
Good germination. I know the bees will love them.
