Borage, also known as starflower, is a fantastic companion to legumes, spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, squash, and strawberries. Plant borage in a veggie garden as a natural pesticide free way to help keep pests away from these crops. Borage is a heavy producer of pollen, so it attracts bees, this helps increase pollination of the nearby plants. Borage helps reduce the need for pesticides and helps vegetables grow by both repelling pests and attracting beneficial insects. The leaves and starflower of Borage are edible and are most commonly used in soups. Borage helps keep cucumber beetles away from your cucumbers and other squashes.
