My name is Amy Andrychowicz and I live and garden in Minneapolis, MN, USA growing zone 4b. Gardening is my passion; and I love all types, indoor and outdoor; including perennials, annuals, tropicals, vegetables, houseplants, succulents and even water gardening.
During the long winter months I turn to indoor gardening, tending to my large collection of houseplants, succulents and tropical plants. It’s a lot of work, but I love being surrounded by green foliage and blooming plants year round – especially during our long Midwest winters.
My philosophy on gardening is that it is a learning experiment. I learn by doing, and I experiment with plants and gardening all the time. My goal is to encourage others to do the same. Anyone can be a gardener. Whether you are a first time homeowner, gardening newbie, or simply have a mind that is more creative than your budget; I’ve created a place for you to find the ideas and knowledge to help turn your dream garden into a reality.
