Ever wondered where chocolate actually comes from? A plant of course! Expert chocolatiers Hotel Chocolat have a base in St Lucia where cacao is grown sustainably, with gentle farming in mind. Hear from CEO Emma Peacock all about the brand, the farming process and even a Hotel Chocolat St Lucia experience.
In this first episode for Series 13, @ellenmarygardening and @mr_plantgeek are joined by the @human_gardener Faith Douglas and Sarah Owen-Hughes who fill us in on the Harrogate Flower Show news. 
Sponsors of series 13 are Lava-Lite  - Naturally The Best


Effortlessly nourish and protect your plants with a collection of totally non-toxic, environmentally friendly, sustainable, pH neutral, lightweight and 100% natural products.


Derived from volcanic deposits, LAVA-LITE was formed by nature over 10,000 years ago.


The collection is made up of eight different horticultural growing/potting media and pest control products, with each continually offering the same natural benefits: thermal protection, moisture retention and control, soil conditioning and providing a nutrient boost; as well as being completely child, pet and environmentally safe.


LAVA-LITE is chemically inert, zero-harm and does not kill pests. It acts as a natural barrier and deterrent, providing an opportunity for them to simply move on.


All the products can be used anywhere in the home and garden without worry and any predators eating prey that have come in to contact with LAVA-LITE will not be harmed, keeping eco-systems balanced, maintained and sustainable.


The LAVA-LITE collection is available in handy 1 litre and 3 litre resealable pouches. They are easy to use, provide great results and don’t require careful handling, making them perfect for the novice gardener and specialist grower.
