Borage

Borago Officinalis

Borage is an herb with a long history of medicinal use. It is also grown for its edible leaves, which taste like cucumber, and its seeds, which are used as a spice.

Borage is known for its high content of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid that has been shown to help reduce inflammation. It also contains moderate levels of vitamin C, magnesium, beta-carotene and potassium.

The leaves of the plant can be consumed raw in salads or cooked like spinach. Borage seed is used as a spice, especially in Central Europe. Borage can be used to sweeten drinks such as cocktails, lemonade, and iced tea. Its delicious flowers also add a delicate touch to the salad. Borage ointment is known to be good for insect bites, bee stings, swelling, bruising, redness and boils.

The benefits of coriander are that it contains antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals. It also contains vitamin C, which helps the body fight infections. Coriander can be used to make tea or simply eaten raw and also mixed into foods for flavoring.

The florets are preferred over the leaves for a milder coriander flavor. Like its leaves, it goes well with sandwiches, salads, soups and goes well with many ingredients and dishes. For example, carrot, zucchini, avocado, coconut milk, tomato and citrus are flavors that are known to go very well with coriander.

Growing Instructions

Soaking the Seeds

Soaking helps improve the germination of certain seed types. Check each seed's soaking requirements from our Seed Library.

Preparing the Soil

Each peat tablet is for one biodegradable pot. Place the peat tablet in a cup of water and wait for it to expand. 

Expanded soil will have a thin layer that will melt away in time. You can either keep it or gently cut it and take it out.

Peat tablets do not contain pathogens.

Sowing the Seeds

In the middle of your swelling soil tablet, you will see a slot for sowing seeds.

​ ​

The sowing depth of the seeds is usually twice their size. Check out the recommended sowing depth for each seed in our Seed Library.

 

Ideally, you should plant 2-3 seeds in each tablet for high germination. If you do not plant the spare seeds in your package, store them in a cool, dark environment.

Watering the Seeds

Give the first sip of water to your seeds, and make sure the soil is moist at all times.

Transplantation

You can transplant your germinated plants to the balcony or the garden after the last frost before the spring, or to a larger flower pot in your home at any time. Generally, your plant is ready for transplantation when it is approximately 7.5 - 8 cm tall.

​ ​

You should put the plant in the ground as is, without removing it from the biodegradable pot. Biodegradable pot will dissolve organically, and you will prevent your plant from getting stressed while transferring.

Care, Harvest, and Storage

Follow our Blog page for all the useful information such as pests and diseases that you may encounter during the maturation process of your medicinal and aromatic plants, and points to be considered while pruning, harvesting, and drying plants with natural methods, tea and oil making methods, and more!

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I use the peat tablets?

The soil tablet is compressed so that it swells with water. Put it on a deep plate and fill the plate with water. In a few hours, it will swell and take the shape of the pot you put it in. It doesn't matter if you've watered a lot at this stage, as the seed will need it the first time it's planted.

Some seeds are so tiny, how do I even hold them?

Some plant seeds are so small that we have difficulty seeing them easily with the eye and picking them up. In order not to lose the seeds while planting:

​ ​

  • You can easily remove the seeds from the package by slightly moistening a toothpick and touching the seeds.

  • Do not spray after planting as you will be planting these tiny seeds on the soil surface - the spray can cause the seed to fly away.

When will my seeds germinate?

Each plant seed in nature has different germination times. For this reason, we have created the Seed Library so that you can get to know each seed you plant closely. Here you can see how long it will take to germinate under the recommended conditions.

​ ​

By keeping your seeds under intensive care during the germination process, check every day that the soil is sufficiently moist and receives sufficient light. You can tell if there is moisture in the swollen soil mass by lightly squeezing it with two fingers.

My seeds died soon after they germinated. Why?

Two of the biggest reasons why seedlings die prematurely are fungal growth due to excessive moisture (or damp-off) or oxygen deprivation of the plant due to excessive irrigation. In this case, the color of the plant turns brown/yellow and rot occurs.

My plant has grown but it looks very weak, what can I do?

Aromatic plants, in particular, respond well to routine fertilization. By giving fertilizer to its soil every month during the growing season, you will make it healthier and stronger.
