How To Grow Borage Herb 

Borage should be planted directly in its final pot and it is recommended not to transplant it because borage has long deep roots, so it doesn’t do well with the transplant.

Borage Seeds Sowing Method 

Take a pot or grow bag, fill it with a sowing medium and then sow the borage seeds about 1-1.5 cm deep in the soil and 5-8 cm apart from each seed. Water deeply, keep the soil moist, and place the pot in a sunny place indoors, or outdoors. Borage seeds germinate for about 7-10 days (depending on growing conditions). When the plant is 12 cm tall, thin the borage plant to about 30-45 cm.

Poor germination
