1 packet (50 borage seeds) (TKA54048)

  • Sow outdoors April/May, thinly, 1cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.
  • When large enough to handle, thin-out seedlings to 23-30cm (9-12in) apart. Or transplant into a flower border.
  • Harvest leaves when young, picking only a few from each plant at a time.
  • Grow borage close to tomatoes, as it attracts bees, which will help with fertilisation.
