"Potage" is a French word for a potted dish, usually a vegetable soup. In the Middle Ages, the soups were a major part of people’s diets in France. The potager (poh-tuh-zhay) was the garden that supplied the ingredients.
Today, potager gardens combine the utilitarian nature of the English kitchen garden with the style and beauty of the French. Plants are chosen as much for their functionality as for their color and form. Most potager gardens have a symmetrical or geometric shape, perhaps with a center focal point, such as a tree, a fountain or a large pot of herbs.
So interesting!! I am going to be doodling symmetrical/geometric garden designs, hee hee.
