Description: Borage is one of those power plants that have so many uses and functions both in and out of the garden. The bright blue flowers and leaves are edible. The leaves are often used for teas and have a cucumber-like flavor. The best part about this plant is the bees it attracts. In fact, it’s said that planting this next to your fruit and veggie plants will help double the yield. Once you plant borage, you’ll never need to plant it again. It loves to self-seed and pop up year after year. Give it a try for yourself.
