Joff talks to Ben Dark about his latest book The Grove - a nature odyssey in 191/2 front gardens.
Ben Dark is such a wonderful writer - The Grove drew me in from the first line. Lia Leendertz
The Grove is overflowing with delicious nuggets of cultural, social and garden history, - and I adore Ben's humour and humility in equal measure. Advolly Richmond
A heartfelt romp through the wisteria and wilderness of London's horticulturally remarkable front gardens. Jack Wallington
Fans of Ben Dark's mellifluous tones on The Garden Log Podcast will be delighted how perfectly his lyrical musings transfer to the printed page as, with infant son in tow, he invites the reader upon a series of horticultural expeditions inspired by the deceptively ordinary planting of the front gardens in a south London street.
