Chicago Apartment Therapy

- From Chicago Apartment Therapy (April 2006.)


“Speaking of Spring, You Grow Girl is an amazing website that will inspire both the novice and experienced gardener (and no, you don’t have to be a girl). Our friend Roni turned us on to You Grow Girl a couple of weeks ago, and we have been daydreaming about all of the upcoming possibilites for our homes (both outside and inside) ever since.

The site has it all: discussion and community forums, tips on how to grow and care for your plants, starting and maintaining a garden, and learning about the seasons. The site’s creator, Gayla Trail, encourages people to garden in whatever space they have available, a great reminder for city dwellers and the garden-phobic. Our not-so-green thumbs have a lot to learn, so we plan on visiting this user-friendly site often.

If you love the site as much as we do, you may want to check out You Grow Girl, the book, written by Trail in 2005.”
