The Garden Log is an award winning podcast from Ben Dark, Head Gardener at an English country estate. Episodes begin with a review of events in the flowerbeds, meadows and woodland, before moving on to discuss horticultural matters more generally. Ben is an ever-curious host who does not take himself, his job or gardening too seriously. A half-hour spent in his company is a half-hour spent far away from the myriad concerns of modern life.

  • Smoldering passionate gardening

    So I don’t think he’s always talking about gardening? Oh dear! But then some of us get pretty worked up when we walk into a garden center, or open a Fall bulb catalogue!! If you aren’t a passionate gardener you may not get absorbed. more

  • Thank goodness - you are back!

    I was despondent when you announced that you were moving to pastures new, as this is one of my favourite podcasts, and I feared that it would cease to exist. However, what a delight that you are back 🙂 It will be fascinating to hear about plants and gardening in a new country, and I look forward to all the other amusing happenings along the way.

  • Men-centric ?

    So far I have only listened to one episode. I like the poetic language and interesting commentary. As a professional gardener who is also a woman, I was a little put off by the consistent references to other gardeners and garden helpers who are all male... :/. I may listen to another episode and see how it goes, but that was my initial reaction. Thanks.

    There’s as much poetry as gardening in this podcast. Philosophy too…and gentle humour. It’s the essence of the wonderful tradition of English gardening.
