then--- I used to design beautiful things on print, ---now I want to create beautiful things with succulents.
Grow Something was discovered in 2012 when I was taking a break from my design career. I needed to do something that made me happy, so I took up organic gardening as a hobby and learned to grow plants without using synthetic fertilizer. Succulents and orchids are the only plants I could keep alive due to my busy schedule as a graphic designer. Over the years, I experimented with different growing mediums, how to cultivate plants and ways to propagate succulents. I was so good at making baby plants, I thought I might be able to sell them as a side gig. I never would have believed it could turn into a full time business! I’m on my way to becoming an urban farm girl. 👩🌾 My business model is unconventional as I don’t want to get tied down renting a store while paying premium rent in Toronto and staying open 7 days a week. Life is too short to be working for that many hours! Renting a backyard meets my business niche so don’t expect a storefront when you visit. What you’ll find is a low key and friendly atmosphere and a walk through my little succulent 🌵container garden!
