Earlier this year we had the great fortune to chat with internationally renowned plant breeder Dr. Keith Hammett (http://www.drkeithhammett.co.nz) and his research associate Dharini Marinkovich. Our conversation ran wide and deep into the areas of sweet peas and dahlias. As a result, we divided the conversation into 2 episodes.
This week we are publishing the second part of our interview, on dahlias and amarylis and clivias.
Dr. Hammett gives us a bit of the back story on dahlia breeding, we chat about dahlia virus and discuss amarylis and clivia (only briefly, sadly).
Our theme music was composed and performed by Heather's son Callum and audio editing was completed by the lovely Laura Eccleston.
