In 2015, the Potager Kitchen Garden was unveiled as part of our Incredible Edibles Summer theme. It was a very popular go-to garden for guests to learn about vegetable gardening in any space. This year, the Potager Kitchen Garden (PKG) team is back at it, as you can see, veggies and flowers are already growing.

What is a Potager Kitchen Garden? It is a garden designed on old principles. It takes its inspiration from the classic French potager garden, where vegetables, fruits, and herbs are grown along with a few ornamental plants, and all are arranged in an attractive geometric pattern. The produce grown in a potager garden should be as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. Learn about the Kitchen Garden’s beginning stages.
