Garden Design No. 18 - The Potager

A potager is the French term for an ornamental vegetable or kitchen garden. This design is to provide a garden of abundance in an aesthetically pleasing manner. What a beautiful way to plant flowers, fruit, vegetables, and herbs!

Using the potager design ideals, even the smallest plot of ground can become a wonder of freshly grown foods and beautiful flowers. 

I have to say I'm intrigued most by the "accessories" that can be used in the potager design. Adding pretty embellishment as well as function. And the art that can be created here with winding paths, height, shape, and color is inspiring.

Some great things to plant in the potager are herbs, lettuces and other salad greens, cucumbers, and zucchini. It doesn't get any fresher than this!

Find a place that is sunny. Find a place with a window to gaze out of. Fine a place where there is space for dining al fresco. This place is your potager plot. No size restrictions. 

What wonderful colors and textures the potager crop offers! 

Where is your potager going to emerge?
