Grow Your Own – Borage

The star shaped flowers of the borage herb add a subtle fresh cucumber flavour to our Hipstar Soda and a stunning garnish to our drinks. Sow seeds directly into a dedicated patch of the garden after the last frost and behold its blue blooms in June and July. It will attract butterflies and bees so is a good companion for strawberries to increase the fruit yields. Allow some to go to seed and self-sow for its revival next year. Scatter freshly foraged flowers over your drinks or make floral ice cubes to keep in the freezer to use all year round.
