ReadyMade Magazine Reviews “You Grow Girl” book

-From: ReadyMade (March/April 2005.)


“In most cities, people outnumber plants. Urbanites seeking to correct the sprout-to-person ratio will find their action plan in Gayla Trail’s inspired book. Trail, who founded the hip, how-to site in 2000, schools clueless downtowners on how to plan, grow, and maintain a mini garden on a windowsill or rooftop. Combining a renter’s pragmatism (one chapter covers planting on fire escapes) with a designer’s eye (she recommends the dramatic, spiky agave for its modernist good looks), Trail’s field guide is ideal for those who prefer a green ghetto to a manicured lawn.” – page 16
