Growing Information

Borage

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days.

Transplant: Starting borage for transplanting is possible, but not recommended, as it develops a taproot and is somewhat difficult to transplant.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Does well in average soil and will perform well even in poor soils.

PLANT HEIGHT: 18-30".

PLANT SPACING: 12".

HARDINESS ZONES: Annual.

HARVEST: Harvest borage as it begins to flower. Dry flowers quickly under moderate heat with good air circulation.

Note: Borage readily self-sows.
