About

Hi, my name is Dr. Moritz Alexander Picot, and I am the principal creator of TheGrowingLeaf.com, a website dedicated to gardening tips.

Inspired by my mother’s love of gardening, I am passionate about caring for plants and turning backyards into feel-good places.

Growing up, I spent countless days in our family’s garden, helping with all aspects of gardening. It must have been the beauty of nature and the moments of joy working on gardening projects that started my love for growing plants.

Over the years, I became obsessed with learning everything about growing plants and discovering the little tricks involved, both from a practical and theoretical standpoint.

I made this website because writing up my knowledge and experience provides me with great fulfillment. Seeing other families’ gardens flourish by sharing my passion puts a big smile on my face.

Now, I should note that I share what has worked for me, and any particular article reflects my knowledge at the time of writing. – If you want to reach out to me or have any questions, I’d love to hear from you. You can get in touch by emailing me at alex@thegrowingleaf.com.

Best wishes,

Alex
