I wouldn’t mind if a few did but I want them primarily because of the colour and the fact that they’re bee magnets of course 💙🐝

This pot only ever had white borage in it 🤔 looks like half the self sets are going to be blue 😕 #borage #common-borage #borago-officinalis

One of the things I wished I had grown back on London! Do you use the flowers in salads?

@gjones it’s very strange. I thought the buds looked a bit dark but presumed the endless rain had affected them. But no, the whole pot is a complete mixture 😂 how a white plant can drop blue seeds I’ll never know 🤣

@pelly it’s such an eye catching colour in the garden isn’t it 💙 has reminded me of the blue penstemon you had last year 😍 (I think it was you 🤔)

@rayman these were given to me as zinnia plants but have turned out not to be zinnia at all 🤣 I’d only known about borage for the flowers but @cyndi sent me some links so learning how much more than a flower it is! Still very pretty though 😛

@cyndi this is a progress photo on the mistaken zinnia. Do you still think borage?

@cyndi thank you for the link 😁 I best tell my uncle about this because he’s planted them everywhere thinking they’re zinnia 🙈 must have marked his seed trays wrong 😂

@cyndi I’m not sure as the seedlings were given to me. I’ve never grown zinnia before so be interesting if they even turn out to be that 😂

@cyndi I’d be happy with borage, the flowers on that are lovely 😁

My first thought was borage too. Perhaps the white variety.
