Is there anywhere that sells fresh borage flowers in the Toronto area?

    I was just at St Lawrence market this morning and there was a woman in the north market with all kinds of herbs. I didn't see borage but I bet she has it or could bring it if you gave her a head's up.

      It is easy to grow, annually from seeds; a favorite with bees and butterflies. Should do well inside on a windowsill. Here is a source.

        I planted borage in my garden 12 years ago, and it seeds itself like crazy - I can't get rid of the stuff!
        Chances are that if you see a garden with lots of borage, and you knock on the door and ask for some flowers, you'll be invited to take as much as you want!
        If you're in the Hamilton area, you're welcome to come and raid my garden any time!!!
