"I Only Want My Love to Grow in You" is a song by English band Strawbs featured on their 1976 album Deep Cuts.

The song was written by Dave Cousins and Chas Cronk and was the first single to be released under their new deal with Oyster Records. This was the first single to be written by the Cousins/Cronk partnership and was chosen for its radio friendliness. Indeed it was BBC Radio 1's record of the week when released and got plenty of airplay. However, this did not translate into records sales
