GardenRant is the work of these highly opinionated gardeners:
GardenRant has been online since June 2006 and quickly developed a following among garden bloggers, garden writers and editors, and landscape nursery business professionals. We have been named Best Garden Blog, Most Innovative Garden Blog, and Best Written, by a jury of our peers.
Garden Design Magazine called us: “Pithy, hysterically funny, with poignant news and views of all aspects of the garden world. Don’t miss their Manifesto!” We’ve also received praise from the Washington Post’s Barbara Damrosch, who said Garden Rant “gives good information, hosts lively and knowledgeable guest ranters, and is anchored by four outstandingly uppity women, excellent writers all.”
Washington Post gardening editor Adrian Higgins said that Garden Rant is “one of my favorites: A blend of gossip, news, crusade and, yes, raw rant, it blows the cobwebs out of gardening’s mustier corners.”
USA Today reported on our gardening activities in the spring of 2010, andMacKenzie Carpenter said in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that although we “will probably never be invited by HGTV to host a garden show,” Rant “is in a class by itself.” In the New York Times, Michael Tortorello asserts that we “mouth off with the zeal of sports radio barkers.” We’ve also been lauded by The American Gardener, Canadian Gardening magazine, BBC’s Gardens Illustrated, and theNational Gardening Association.
