What’s a Potager Garden?
A vegetable and ornamental kitchen garden that is used for every day cooking. It is designed to be both productive and beautiful with the goal of raising food in an aesthetically pleasing way. Some potagers are strictly used for daily kitchen produce and others include flowers and herbs – all for daily use in the home.
