Kitchen Gardens – Potagers

Kitchen Gardens – Potagers

“A place to grow the things you bring into the kitchen  –  herbs, vegetables, fruits, berries and even the cutting flowers for your table.”

The French have been combining flowers, herbs and vegetables in their gardens since medieval days and Americans are following suit. The popularity of kitchen gardens, or as the French call them “potagers”, has taken off.

In combination with an outdoor kitchen, this type of garden can truly create an extension to your home and cooking. This garden is one that the kids like to be involved in; they are more apt to eat what they grow and harvest. It is truly a personal area unique in design, details and individual to your family.  

Bon appétit!
