About TheGrowingLeaf

Gardening is a hobby that more than half of us share. But for those of us who vividly remember those early days, we know firsthand that developing that “green thumb” can be quite overwhelming for beginners.

At TheGrowingLeaf, we understand the challenges of gardening — because we’ve been there! As horticulture experts, we’re now committed to providing you with the latest and greatest techniques to turn your backyard (or home) into a lush, inviting, green space.

Welcome to TheGrowingLeaf!

TheGrowingLeaf.com is a gardening website dedicated to providing practical and easy-to-understand guides covering all aspects of gardening. Dr. Moritz Alexander Picot started this site back in 2022 in pursuit of sharing the knowledge behind his green thumb with the world. 

Our #1 goal is to offer an unbiased, honest approach to gardening that gives you the inspiration, ideas, and confidence to accomplish your gardening goals. 

Whether you’re neatening up an unkempt garden, propagating your first batch of tomatoes, pruning your hydrangeas in the spring, or planning an at-home aquaponics system, TheGrowingLeaf has your answers.

Our Simple Yet Expert Approach

At TheGrowingLeaf, our mission is to provide easy-to-understand guides that cater to gardeners of all levels and skill sets.

Dr. Moritz Alexander Picot


Dr. Moritz Alexander Picot discovered his love for gardening 25+ years ago. Inspired by his mother’s passion for tending to the garden, Moritz spent countless days in the family garden pulling weeds, transplanting young seedlings, pruning dead leaves, and more!

In 2022, Moritz decided to share his passion for horticulture with the world through TheGrowingLeaf. He has since written over 1,000 articles covering a wide range of horticulture topics, from fertilizing and amending to plant selection and garden upkeep.
