We have lots of borage in our garden and it is in flower now,in fact it has barely stopped flowering from last year. It looks really attractive when a single flower is introduced into an ice cube.

I was also told the leaves garnish Pimms’ cocktails too.

The flowers also look attractive when sprinkled on top of a salad (they are edible).

They self set too.


good tip thanks for sharing.


The Borage shrub, indicative by its small electric blue flowers is not only a favourite for Bumblebees but its coarse leaves are rich in Potassium. Whilst pruning back this plant, leave leaves to dry for a few days and place in the compost bin for a nutrient boost..sort of Red Bull for plant life.

This is both an interesting fact and a Household Top Tip so I thought it deserved thread of its own.
