Borage has bright blue, star-shaped flowers that explode in a blue profusion all summer attracting honey bees. This makes borage one of the most attractive herb plants to us as beekeepers. If you are one of the many people this year trying to help save the vanishing honeybee this is a perfect plant.

Harvest borage when the plant has finally matured, after around 60 days of growth. It is easiest to harvest the leaves and flowers with scissors, cutting the young leaves as these leaves are likely less coarse than the older ones. Harvest the flowers as soon as they begin to open and blossom. This is when they will have the most flavor and aroma. Borage may be harvested through multiple ways, whether it be scissors or by using a hand-picking method.
