The development of Phytofarm is now her primary passion and brings together a number of her skills - gardener, teacher, learner and care taker of 30 acres of forest and gardens. We are delighted to support Phytofarm with the inclusion of several of the wild foods and botanicals grown on site including Lemon Verbena which is the main botanical in our Hector’s Little River Lemon Verbena Gin.
