I've had loads of these in various stages of growth. I scatter those paper 'purses' and just pull out the surpluses and those in bad places. I'll keep you some seeds.

The seeds were scattered last Autumn, then the following Spring I just pull out the ones growing in the wrong places.

I grew borage from seed, planted them around but not one seeded, all gone. My honesty (bog basic) appears here and there though.
