Potager gardens incorporate flowers, vegetables, fruits, herbs and other plants into your vegetable garden. Grow what you eat and make the garden pretty by adding colorful blooms that attract pollinators. This will increase your harvest. Adding borders of flowers, for example marigolds, also helps detract pests. These flowers doubles as a beautiful border. Don’t spend all your time looking for design ideas. Select a few ideas and then start planning!
Choosing Plants for Potager Gardens
Potager vegetable gardens should consider color. Thanks to nature there is an infinite number of color combinations to choose from. Contrasting colors can create a real sense of drama. For example, try placing red cabbage next to the common green cabbage. Ornamental plants can really come into their own in potager gardens. In particular, Calendula, echinacea, sunflowers, and nasturtiums can help make a gorgeous Potager Garden. There are many useful companion plants like chamomile, marigold, calendula, rose, zinnia, and daisy flowers for instance. Finally, these also provide barriers to insects. Pollinators appreciate for these flowers for their nectar, which encourages pollination of all of the crops. See our pollinator and butterfly attracting flowers article for more info on pollinators.
