a garden where vegetables, herbs, and fruit are grown for one's own use.
Origin of kitchen garden:
kitchen garden, vegetable garden, vegetable patch(noun)
a small garden where vegetables are grown
A garden used for growing fruit, vegetables and/or herbs for use in the kitchen.
The traditional kitchen garden, also known as a potager or in Scotland a kailyaird, is a space separate from the rest of the residential garden – the ornamental plants and lawn areas. Most vegetable gardens are still miniature versions of old family farm plots, but the kitchen garden is different not only in its history, but also its design. The kitchen garden may serve as the central feature of an ornamental, all-season landscape, or it may be little more than a humble vegetable plot. It is a source of herbs, vegetables and fruits, but it is often also a structured garden space with a design based on repetitive geometric patterns. The kitchen garden has year-round visual appeal and can incorporate permanent perennials or woody shrub plantings around the annuals.
