Amy Andrychowicz is the creator of "Get Busy Gardening", a popular gardening website dedicated to beginner gardeners, where she has been actively blogging for almost 10 years. She is also the author of several successful eBooks that are available on GetBusyGardening.com.
Amy gets her green thumb from her parents, and has been gardening for most of her life. She is a passionate gardener who enjoys growing vegetables, herbs, annuals, perennials, succulents, tropical plants, and houseplants--you name, she’s grown it! After purchasing her first home in 2002, Amy soon discovered that she has a knack for designing and building DIY projects. Over the years, she has transformed her boring suburban yard into a garden oasis by adding several flower gardens, a large vegetable garden, a tropical garden, a rain garden, a Zen garden, two ponds, and many unique hardscape features, all of which were DIY projects. She is devoted to helping new gardeners learn through guidance, encouragement, and advice that is easy to understand. Amy loves sharing her knowledge, and strongly believes that there is no such thing as a brown thumb; anyone can be a gardener if they want to be.
Amy lives and gardens in Minneapolis, Minnesota (zone 4b) with her husband and two cats (though the cats aren’t much help in the garden!).
