Delicious, easy to grow and stunningly ornamental, this is the ideal multi-tasking veg for the gardener who wants it all. Borage is one of the very best plants for attracting pollinators such as bees. Sow: April-June. Harvest: August-October. Tastes like: Green melon, cucumber, runner beans.

Growing Information

Full growing instructions given on packet. Sow seeds in a row of fertile, well-drained soil 13mm (½") deep in a lightly-shaded, sheltered site. The cool environment and lack of bright light encourages soft, tender leaves especially when the resulting seedlings are spaced 20cm (8") apart. The key to borage is warmth then cold! Keep the plants well watered with a dilute nitrogen-rich fertiliser such as nettle liquid once a week and in around 8 weeks time you will have lush leafy plants with long, strappy, almost fuzz-free leaves. Harvest the plant before it flowers by slicing the whole plant down to the ground. If you are keen on harvesting the flowers too then plant one or two plants in a sunnier site or simply avoid harvesting one of your regular plants until a flower stalk erupts from the centre. Sowing: April-June. Cropping: 8 weeks.

Sowing Information

Sow seeds in a well-drained soil 13mm deep in a lightly shaded sheltered site. Space resulting seedlings 20cm(8") apart.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.
