Borage is an Annual?
I've read all over the place that borage, the herb, is an annual. That it dies back in cold weather, and needs replanting.
So last year (2008), I took several kinds of herb seeds, carefully marked them, and sowed them in peat pellets. Some grew and some didn't. The ones that grew I transplanted (with the markers). The borage is one of those that grew magnificently. Beautiful green, fuzzy leafs.
It started dying in the Fall and we just let it. After all, it's an annual, right?
Wrong. At least, not in our home. Even though we had some snow and some sub-zero temperatures this last Winter, it has decided to live.
I took the above right picture on May 19 2009. It IS borage, right?
