Newbald Lodge: and unusual road layout and a lot of borage growing
Newbald Lodge: and unusual road layout and a lot of borage growing
A garden escapee, borage can colonise large areas. Not a problem in Spain perhaps, for I was contacted by a Spanish gentleman who informs me that in some parts of the Ebro river valley (northeast) fresh borage leaves and stems are eaten cooked, usually boiled in water.
Here it is perhaps best known for its use with Pimms - leaves are put in the drink.
Otherwise it is a plant used by herbalists, and is described as diuretic, demulcent and emollient. Apparently it is much used in France for fevers and pulmonary complaints. By virtue of its saline constituents, it promotes the activity of the kidneys and for this reason is employed to carry off feverish catarrhs. Its demulcent qualities are due to the mucilage contained in the whole plant.
