I've recently rescued a Borage plant from poorly corner at the local garden centre, there is one quite healthy stem with a good showing of flowers but not many leaves. It's also REALLY leggy, I suspect it's been hiding in a corner or crammed in with a load of other plants. I'm going to let it go to seed this year so hopefully I'll get some brucey bonus plants coming up at some point, but then what? chop it back and hope the slugs snails and Charlie the cunning mouse don't get to it 1st or let it do it's thing?
It's a new garden to us so at the moment we're taking more out than we are putting in, it was PROPER over grown, this was an attempt at a bit of colour to be going on with and to give some plants a chance to establish before we get really stuck in round the edges~!
thanks in advance for any advice (again!)
