Our borage is already done for the year and I've pulled it out so it doesn't seed out everywhere. Loved the pretty flowers and the bees adored this plant!

I've heard they can spread lots of seed. I'll do the same with my one plant. Use the seed next year. Good night! @gjones

Im in Oregon. No explanation, other than impatience. I hadn't started seed in July til this year. Because I dont have a greenhouse I knew I'd have to bring the babies in the house come autumn. I have an extra room (I use the term 'extra' roughly.) Were going to put up some racks and see how they do. All the plants I sowed in July are perennials. I was especially anxious to start some beautiful things I ordered from #plantworldseeds in Devon. I hope they have a head start. @terrimclaughlin
