Dave’s Garden defines a potager garden:
“A French style ornamental kitchen garden. A potager is similar to the traditional English cottage garden but mainly based on vegetables and other edible plants and herbs, often incorporating some cut flower plants for the household. The plants are chosen for their form, colour and taste, with seasonality and continuity of fresh vegetables for the household in mind, also should be low maintenance and closely planted.”
