The best gardening podcast I have found. Ben Dark is well-named, having a “dark-brown”, relaxing voice, delivering his timeless wisdom & reflecting on the (mostly) horticultural experiences of his week. It’s serious without being stuffy & there’s always something new to learn- even (in the latest one) “how to bury a muntjac”(!) I’m sure there are many non-gardeners who would enjoy his gentle musings equally as well. I would love to know at which garden he works & whether it’s open to the public (though I suspect not). Does he have his own garden too? (Maybe no time for any more.) Many thanks, Ben, for so patiently sharing your knowledge & stories with us every week.

Great Listen

I have just come across this gardening podcast and have binge listened to all 47 podcasts.
Ben’s language is rich with imagery that envokes is enchanting.
Very enjoyable and looking forward to the next episodes

Amusing musings

Easy, mellow listening. Ben has a real way with words and I love his evocative descriptions. The recommendations section is always interesting and unexpected. So much more (and better) than just a “gardening podcast”!
