Located with a distant view of the River Deben in Suffolk and open to meadows. I am trying to merge the garden with the wild indigenous plants.

Borage is definitely one of those plants where the more you look the more you see!

I grew it from seed last year, love it for the bees but also use it in Pimms & salads! Be careful though, it self seeds! I’ve had to pull up quite a few this year.

Ooooh, love this plant. Which is lucky, because new self-seeded babies are still popping up from that one time I grew some in 2017! 🤣
