Review By Joy

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
