What Is Borage?

Borage is an annual plant sown in the spring. It grows approximately 1-1.2m high with stout, prickly stems, broad rough leaves and is extremely competitive against weeds. It is also known as the Bee Plant and Bee Bread because the blue purplish star shaped flower attracts bees all summer long. 

Growing Borage

Fairking have successfully grown Borage in the UK for 30 years and have built up a wealth of agronomic experience. We are now considered as the UK's largest Borage Oil Specialists. Crops are grown throughout England, as far North as Humber. 

Uses of Borage Oil?

Borage oil contains the highest natural source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) discovered so far. GLA is a naturally occurring essential fatty acid. Scientific evidence has confirmed GLA’s use in the treatment of a wide range of conditions including multiple scelerosis and eczema. Work is also being carried out on its effect on Alzheimer's disease, pancreatic cancer and asthma.
