Earlier this year we decided to dismantle one of our raised beds (long story) and relocate the soil to a new part of our garden. Not long before the soil was moved, however, I had tossed handfuls of annuals seeds in there and I had an inkling that of all the seeds that were dislodged and upended, the borage would probably still find a way to germinate. Those of you who grow this pretty herb are in agreement with me right now, yes? You already know how easily it will grow. (Mysteriously, I’m finding borage popping up in other areas of our garden which are no where near the original seeds.) Sure enough, up came a plant in that new garden elbowing it’s way through the masses of sunflowers and zinnias. I like to go out there sometimes to pluck a tiny flower and admire it’s delicate beauty. (And then I pop it in my mouth and chomp, chomp, chomp because they taste almost as good as they look.) Need seeds? This is where I purchased mine. You will probably only ever need to sow them once in your garden for they tend to volunteer themselves into odd little nooks and crannies year after year.
