Borage - Seeds

   
   

This wild flower is frequently sown around the perimeter of fields as a bee attractant, making it excellent for sunny meadows. The robust arrow-shaped leaves are covered in hairs, and plants give rise to clusters of star-like sky-blue summer flowers. Will freely self-seed once established. The edible flowers have a mild cucumber-like flavour.
