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's episode focuses on sweetpeas.
Dr. Hammett describes the painstaking care involved in developing his now famous Erewhon, the story behind the name, along with so many fascinating insights and stories about sweet peas and plant breeding.
Our theme music was composed and performed by Heather's son Callum and audio editing was completed by the lovely Laura Eccleston.
