Canadian Gardening – Review

Canadian Gardening – Site of the Month

September 2003.

“Sassy, unconventional and totally passionate about plants, You Grow Girl is refreshingly, um, fresh. The work of Toronto-based Gayla Trail and a host of volunteer contributors from around the world, You Grow Girl re-defines gardening for a new generation of gardeners. Under a cheeky veneer of scorn for conventional gardening wisdom lies a solid base of horticultural information delivered in Sex in the City style. From Jane Eaton Hamilton’s Adequate Gardener column (I admit it, I’m addicted) to the catnip test-off (which brand does your cat prefer?), the website is full of chuckles, surprises and, er, fun. Send a You Grow Girl e-card to a friend, read a plant journal, post a question to a forum or submit a gardening tip, whatever. Get real, get gardening with You Grow Girl.”
