Potager gardens were invented in France as ornamental kitchen gardens. They combine fruit and veg crops with flowers and herbs to enhance the beauty of the space. The idea is to give a functional vegetable plot the year-round visual appeal of a garden.
Piet Oudolf's model garden in Hummelo presents a magnificent array of colours - the poetry of nature. "You need to ensure that the plants you put in your garden combine harmoniously with one another," says Piet Oudolf.
