Doctors of Herbal Transplantation!

BEFORE-Borage Plants Coming up EVERYWHERE!

AFTER-Vegetable Plants Say Thank You!
Well, we had a terrific day to work in the garden yesterday.  Remember the borage hedge we had last year in this bed.  I have labeled them as an annual herb, a perennial herb and they could be called a rampant self-sowing herb as well.  We definitely have the self-sowing kind.  They went bonkers this year!  So the Doctors Heraud did a transplantation, herbally speaking.  At least, they are out of that bed and we will sprinkle them around in other beds.  As you may be able to see in the link above, they do take a bit of space up and you need to use them judicially. We put them in the frig.  Hope they don't freeze.  Maybe using them in a salad if they did!  We had a blustery rainy and decidedly cooler day today.  Hope you had a great day.  Talk to you later.

How wonderful to have your borage be so prolific. I've grown it before and love the blue flowers and the cucumber taste of the leaves.

Happy Gardening ~ FlowerLady

Lemon Balm is the big 'volunteer' in my garden! No matter how hard I try to prune it back before it goes to see, I end up with a million 'babies' the next year! Happy Spring!

Lemon balm is a given in my garden as well, Barbara. I just take it out as I'm weeding! Thanks for coming by! xo
