Curator's Garden

The Curator's Garden is designed as an ornamental kitchen garden also known by the French term, potager. A garden with purpose, it serves as a source of vegetables, fruit and herbs all year round.

Raised beds, rotational crops and plants trained to grow upwards to conserve space are common elements in this functional and well structured garden. As well as edible elements, companion plants are added to enhance beauty and attract pollinating insects. 

If you're interested in learning more about edible gardening, the Canterbury Horticultural Society(external link) who are based in the Botanic Gardens Kiosk often run workshops and hold talks.
