Not as common as thyme or basil, borage herb (Borago officinalis) is a great plant for the culinary garden. It grows quickly as an annual, will self seed so allocate a small area in the garden and will reappear year after year. June and July will bring coulour with a small, brilliant blue bloom drawing in bees and insects.  The oval leaves are hairy and rough with the lower foliage pushing 6 inches in length. The borage plant can grow 12 or more inches wide in a tall bushy habit.

A traditional herb served with Pimms  in the warmer months, Borage has a cucumber like taste and the stems are not out of place topping a fresh salad.
