Meet The Grower
The Botanic Grocer is owned and operated by Jane Rose Lloyd, a horticulturist, producer, researcher and devout plant collector. Jane has always had a connection to plants, from growing up in her grandmothers garden from a young age planting all sorts and playing in dirt, to developing a deep fascination with the way various locations and climatic conditions could change the flavour profiles of coffee during her 10 years in hospitality.
Jane has studied a Diploma of Applied Horticultural Science, volunteered a year in commercial indoor plant production before working at a retail nursery and has spent countless hours researching and experimenting with a broad range of plants — some intended to live indoors, but many trialled experimentally.
