Borago officinalis Borage

Posted: 19 July 2013
Overall: Borage seeds contain an oil, typically 15 - 20% called GLA - Gamma Linoleic acid, similar to Safflower oil but a bit less concentrated, and has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy for various conditions. I eat the seeds (in moderation of course) look up on Wilkipedia for fascinating information. Bees love it and it is ideal for a 'wild corner' of the garden.
