Mark Griffiths is one of Britain’s leading writers on horticultural and botanical subjects, with several definitive gardening books and regular media columns. He was Editor and principal author of The New Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening (Macmillan 1992) and the New RHS Index of Garden Plants (Macmillan 1994).  He is a regular contributor to Country Life.  Mark is a Fellow of the Linnean Society and an Honorary Member of the Royal College of Physicians.  In 2006, his long-standing interest in medicinal plants bore fruit in his restoration of the gardens of the Royal College of Physicians, reviving possibly Britain’s earliest botanic garden.

His The Lotus Quest: In Search of the Sacred Flower was published by Chatto & Windus in 2009.
