And Anne has campaigned over those past 33 years for a renaissance in British gardens, focusing on encouraging serious reviews of gardens and on returning gardens to their place amongst the fine arts in British culture. To this end she has also also edited thinkingardens which has certain similarities to Garden Rant, in being challenging and provocative.  She has made herself thoroughly unpopular amongst her colleagues in the process – British gardens are popularly believed to be above criticism.
