How to Grow Borage

When to Plant Borage Seeds

Direct sow borage seeds outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed.

Where to Plant Borage Seeds

Borage seeds prefer fine, well-worked and moist soil in full sun conditions. However, it can tolerate partial shade. Borage prefers a soil pH of 6.0 to 7.0.

How to Plant Borage Seeds

Add aged compost to the planting bed and turn it under to 12 inches before planting. Sow seed about 1/8th of an inch into the soil. The seed must be covered for germination to take place. Space your rows about 24 inches apart. Germination will occur after 7-14 days. Thin seedlings about 24 inches apart once they are 6-8 inches tall. Borage requires even, regular water until established. Once established, the soil can dry out between waterings. Fertilize with compost tea and pinch back plants when they reach 6 inches tall to encourage bushiness and blooming. Tall plants may require staking or support.

How to Harvest Borage

Borage is considered to be a liberal self-sower, dropping its own herb seeds, so you can enjoy more plants in the following year! To harvest, snip fresh, young leaves in spring and summer as needed. Harvest young leaves before they develop bristly hairs. Flowers can be snipped individually or in clusters as soon as they open.

Companion Plants for Borage Seeds

From Our Customers

5.00/5 Based on 8 Reviews

  1. Abundant Blooms

    Very pleased with my Borage. They are very prolific; mine have produced 10 times more blooms than what I expected. It is very easy to grow. They are planted alongside our squash as I have read that they are beneficial to squash & tomatoes. The leaves really do taste like cucumber; it is very interesting. Thank you Eden Brothers for quality products.

  2. Great germination

    I had heard that bees really like the flower on borage and that ones established it will see itself. I mixed with the bee pollinator mix and sewed the seeds right before a spring rain. I do have drip spray heads which provide regular light watering and they are thriving.

  3. Great choice fast growing

    Looking forward to large plants and realizing I sowed seed to closely for plants to have enough room. Surprised at close to 100% germination rate and pleased with the lush growth.

  4. Terrific

    Fast, tremendous growth. Keep watered regularly - if borage dries out, it will quickly begin to wilt and slacken. Luckily, they'll shoot right back up when watered - don't wait too long, though!

  5. borage seeds

    They was a gift to my sister who was thrilled to get them.. She has a bee shortage in her town because of pesticides and plenty of space to sow the seeds.

  6. great purchase

    The seeds arrived quickly and in great condition. wonderful germination rate so far. No issues at all.

  7. Added Boost

    Plant these near your tomato plants. These repel the hornworms that attack tomato plants, and produce a synergistic taste improvement in the fruit of the plant.

  8. More Folks should grow and eat this

    This herb or is it a herb? is great. Tastes great.
