Borage is an incrdibly useful plant with many uses in the garden and kitchen. Plant near your vegetable garden to smother weeds and attract bees. The lovely, small flowers open blue, turn purple and finally pink and are fully edible - adding exciting color to salads and soups! Borage can also be frozen in ice cubes to lend cucumber flavor to cold drinks or as a nourishing tea for nursing mothers. Also survives light frosts.
