How to Plant Borage Seeds

Borage can be started indoors, following these guidelines. Borage seedlings are not tolerant of being pricked individually out of flats, they start nicely in cell packs (the 6-pack containers garden centers frequently use), or in 2-inch containers. Do not allow seedlings to become root-bound. Kept at 70° F., germination is in 5-15 days. Or, direct sow ¼ inch deep, 6-inches apart. Thin to 12-24 inches apart.

Growing borage: Full or part sun. Borage tolerates drought, poor soil. Plants are resistant to deer and rabbits. Learn more about borage.
