This contemporary, laid-back approach to organic gardening places equal importance on environmentalism, style, affordability, art, and humour. Now in its eleventh year online, You Grow Girl™ has become a thriving community for like minded gardeners and even self-confessed “black thumbs.” The project’s aim has always been to promote exploration, excitement and a d.i.y approach to growing plants without the restrictions of traditional ideas about gardening."]
