Borage [64410]


Borago officinalis

Also known as the “Herb of Gladness” Borage is widely used for fish and cheese dishes. Young leaves make excellent additions to salads. Borage tea can be made from the fresh Azure Blue flowers - boil the flowers in water for 10 minutes. However, Borage flowers lose their flavour if dried or frozen. Great for attracting bees to the garden if you have plants that require pollination.
