With guidance from The Elegant and Edible Garden, you’ll learn how to create a one-of-a-kind food garden that’s just as beautiful as it is functional.

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
