    Oh No! no more city grow hydro in the Bronx? I’m a beginner at organic gardening and located in the Bronx, N.Y. I just found out that there was a CGH retailer in the Bronx no more than 20 mins. from my neighborhood. Went to take a ride by there Mon. Jan. 7th, 2013 to find a cleanup up crew and the disappointing news that City Grow Hydro had closed. what a bummer! where to buy my Hydro and organic supplies now that you guys are gone? My big box store doesn’t carry Fox Farm products. any suggestions?
