Bee Bread

 

Borage flowers

 

Why grow borage? Well…

Bees LOVE it for starters 🐝🐝🐝which is why it’s often called ‘Bee Bread’. It’s easy to grow, can reach 2 metres tall, you can make a healthy tea from the leaves and the blue flowers are beautiful and edible!!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Soak borage seeds in water for 2 days
  2. Plant outdoors straight away from April (they have a long tap root and don’t like being transplanted)
  3. Cover seeds with 2cm of compost or soil
  4. Watch it grow and wait for all those bees!
