How To Grow Borage From Seeds A quick growing 2 foot annual and cornflower blue shaped flowers. Borage also self sows generously.
Direct Sow Only: Sow seeds directly in the garden a week or so before the last frost. There is not much advantage in growing transplants, as Borage does not like to be moved. For a steady harvest of the decorative and edible flowers and the edible leaves, sow small batches of seeds every four weeks.
How to Plant Borage Seeds: When planting seeds, be sure to cover the seeds as they need darkness to germinate. After the seedling have sprouted, thin to 1 foot apart. Days to Germination: 5-8 days at 70ºF (21ºC). Borage tolerates poor soil and does well in any porous soil that is moderately well supplied with water. Give the gift that keeps on giving.
