Garden Rant

I've added the women at the Garden Rant to the blog list on the right. A popular blog that's been around since 2006, the purveyors of Garden Rant have the following manifesto. They are ...

Convinced that gardening MATTERS
Bored with perfect magazine gardens.
In love with real, rambling, chaotic, dirty, bug-ridden gardens.
Suspicious of “the horticultural industry.”
Delighted by people with a passion for plants.
Appalled by chemical warfare in the garden.
Turned off by any activities that involve “landscaping” with “plant materials.”
Flabbergasted at the idea of a “no maintenance garden.”
Gardening our asses off.
Having a hell of a lot of fun.

One of the ranters is Amy Stewart, the author of "Wicked Plants", profiled here. They sure do seem to have a lot of fun, as well as provide a lot of good information.


  1. Thanks for the nice write-up. One of us Ranters is a Master Gardener, btw - me! I got certified in Wash, D.C.

  2. Thanks for noticing and stopping by, Susan. I'm a 1997 Rockville, MD emigre to Franklin County, PA, myself. We should be expanding our contributor list in the coming weeks to keep the content blossoming. Cheers.
