CREATE A HABITAT TO PROTECT OUR BEES
Looking for some zest in your cooking and some pizazz in the garden?
Grow your own herbs!
Fill your garden or patio with these pretty blue flowers that will help attract beneficial bees, and will provide feeding opportunities for pollinators throughout the growing season.
Plants grow to 20" tall and make an outstanding ornamental plant. Flowers are used as a garnish, for salads or are candied while the leaves are used to flavour claret punch.
Borage is an annual, however, may establish itself in the garden by self-sowing or by animals distributing the seeds. While it is adventive, borage is not invasive.
- Attracts bees
- Sow in spring (can be started indoors)
- Full sun
The importance of bees is far greater than the honey they produce. Did you know that honey bees perform about 80% of all pollination worldwide? One out of three bites of food comes from a bee-pollinated plant. Numerous crops like apples, cranberries, melons, broccoli, and almonds would cease to exist without the hard-working bees’ contribution to our food system.
