Last year, I sowed borage seeds in the front garden to fill a space – a large space. The borage, with self-seeded phacelia, then took over and smothered quite a few other plants. Thankfully, they survived and have grown more robust in the interim (see the primrose in the background).
I’m so pleased to have some borage flowers for a salad tonight. However, I wish the plants could be a little more on the diminutive side. As it is, I am afraid they will have to get chopped down when they get bigger, as I would like to appreciate some of the perennials as well.
All the same, it is great to see more flowers at a time when the bees may still be finding it hard to get all they need!
