Summary

Discover how to partner ornamental plants with edible ones for a garden that offers both storybook appeal and a plethora of culinary delights.

Stylish and celebratory, The Elegant and Edible Garden takes food growing to a higher plane. Host of The Potager Blog (@potagerblog), author and garden stylist Linda Vater, shares her vision for creating a garden space where food and flowers grow side by side. Known as a potager, these gardens are formal in their framework yet flexible and personal in their edible yields. A potager garden is both lovely to look at and productive. Doubling as an outdoor living area, it is also the perfect place to entertain family and friends.

Inside you’ll learn:

  • How to grow flowers, fruits, veggies, and herbs together en masse
  • The function of symmetry in a potager garden
  • Ways to create visual harmony and match the style of the garden to its surroundings
  • Tips for blending your family’s needs and lifestyle into the garden
  • Advice on how to utilize focal points and garden ornaments in your garden’s layout
  • The importance of rhythm, repetition, and harmony in potager design
  • How to position garden structures with practicality and purpose in mind
  • Where to put your potager for not just convenience but also to create a destination
  • Best practices for growing your beautiful new garden organically


Create a garden that rejoices in seasonality while still allowing your style and personality to shine. The Elegant and Edible Garden is a vision of the very best things a garden can offer: food, beauty, connection, and a place to breathe.
