Borage is a pretty herb that has a variety of uses, both culinary and medicinal. Both the leaves and pretty star-shaped flowers are edible and taste of cucumber and honey respectively. This plant also deters hornworms from laying eggs on tomatoes, making them a great companion plant. Borage is great for beginner gardeners and those that like low maintenance gardens. Borage was once used to flavour wine and was historically used to give men courage.
