5. Hollyhocks taste a bit bitter but what a gorgeous showy flower to add to tea or garnish with. It is tremendous for helping treat sore throats and control coughing spells. This is a tall beauty and you might want to plant them as a backdrop for your cabbage plants. You might find them very helpful in controlling a whole lot of different leaf eating insects.
6. Another favorite is Borage that has such a pleasant mild cucumber flavor. This herb companion is a must for every garden and especially for those who love growing strawberries. It is also really good for your soil too! The vitamins in borage have a long list for both your skin and inside as an immunity builder.
