    I’ve heard that the plants draw bees into the garden like crazy. So it might be a good plant to help with pollination of other veggies. My pack says:

    Young leaves can be used raw in salads or sauteed like spinach. Fresh leaves also flavor summertime drinks. Flowers can be candied for decoration desserts. Ht. 18-24″.

    Handle young plants carefully, borage does not transplant well. For fresh use only. Do not dry or freeze.

    I just got two borage plants today. I got them hoping to attract bees because my cucumbers seem to have a little trouble polinating. I am glad to see that I can also eat the leaves and the pretty flowers!

    I own a couple beehives, and there were a lot of plants in my garden that the bees seemed to ignore, but all my Borage plants were always sure to always have at least a few bees on them. Buckwheat does well, but only in the morning. By far the best pollinator attractant was the Rocky Mountain Beeplant, which is native to the intermountain west.

    Just go to burpee seeds and buy some seeds.  They are the easiest herb to grow.
