jardin de plantes aromatiques
Explanation:
Juste pour le dire d'une autre manière. Pour moi, "herb garden" n'inclut pas les légumes, et donc je n'utiliserais pas le terme de "potager". Il est vrai que ce type de jardin inclut aussi des herbes médicinales (ex. la sauge qui sert en cuisine et en médecine), puisuqe nombre de plantes aromatiques servent aussi en médecine. Au Moyen Age, on employait le terme de "jardin de simples", pour ce type de jardin.

potager


Explanation:
herb garden could also have the meaning: garden where one grows herbs for cooking, not only for medical use (officinal herbs)...
in this case, I would use "potager"

Hope, this helps !
