Grow Urban is a plant and botanical goods shop specializing in rare and unusual tropical houseplants. Catering to the indoor and outdoor urban gardener, Grow Urban was founded by Graham Savage in 2019 who opened a shop in a Victorian Gothic style building in the Fountainbridge neighborhood of Edinburgh. The success of this store led to the opening of a second location in Edinburgh's Stockbridge district in 2021.

The building that houses the Fountainbridge location was designed by British architect Fredrick Thomas Pilkington and boasts lavish carvings. An elegant Georgian building is home to the second, larger Grow Urban shop that features an indoor glasshouse. Both shops offer in-house "potting sheds", gardening tools and a selection of pots. Both also offer an opportunity to pause amongst the greenery and savor some coffee and cake.
