While undeniably (and understandably) growing fears and frustrations, this pandemic has also grown something else; a multitude of new gardeners! One estimate showed an increase of over 20 million new gardeners, across the United States, in the past two years. Another survey estimated that long-time gardeners are spending up to 40% more time in the garden. For many, the focus was growing edible plants. But those who dig traditional vegetables, herbs and fruits have another option, beyond the symmetrical, sometimes weed-filled rows!
For others, another type of sustainably-minded garden trend is taking root—a transition towards Texas native plants, which have the unique ability to inspire while giving back to people, pollinators, and the planet!
But unfortunately gardening can often-times become a little confusing, not to mention the expense of replacing less-than adapted box store purchased plants.

Unlike traditional food gardens, (which are often mini-versions of farm plots) potager gardens or traditional “kitchen gardens” have incorporated edible plants with ornamental splendor! For added function, a potager garden (called a kailyaird in Scotland) is usually located just feet from the door nearest to the kitchen. For centuries, this prime real estate has had to compete with pristine lawns and showy perennial beds– so it’s no wonder that kitchen gardens have long served as a central feature of the landscape, designed for year-round appeal!
Chosen equally for their beauty, flavor, and usefulness our modern potager garden appeals to the senses, layering a palette of colors across the garden plot…that are destined for the plate. Designed with contracting colors and textures that create a sense of drama this 125 sq ft kitchen “garden in a box” incudes 11 unique ornamental edible herbs and flowers curated by our expert horticulturists, to thrive in the sometimes harsh and unpredictable Texas climate. With 24 easy-to-dig starter plants and 3 plant-by-number designs from which to choose, your natural potager garden will take root in no time– providing flavor and flare for season after season. Year-round interest is anchored with blooms spring, summer and fall with evergreens that provide a foundation of interesting foliage!
