about Fiann & blog


about me – I am an ongoing author, occasional broadcaster,  regular weekend columnist for the Irish examiner and always an advocate of gardening for health & wellbeing.

I have a background in medicinal botany, nutritional science and horticultural therapy as well as holistic therapies, mindfulness facilitation and CBT counselling.

about the blog – The purpose of this blog is to give expression to the full potential living that tending a garden gifts –  to look at it from a holistic viewpoint and to participate with it on physical and spiritual wavelengths.

I will write about how it heals and nourishes mind, body and spirit and how we can heal and nourish it in return.

The blog is predominately text. I prefer substance over style and I’m not a fan of blogs that are all gorgeous pintrest but of no interest. Not judging – just opting with mine, to get straight to the point.

that said – If you crave some holistic garden visuals then there is always  @fiannsview on instagram.

……….. and if you like what you read and see then do check out the more in-depth content in my books.  Buy one if you can – the few cents royalty contributes to keeping this  laptop charged.

    Hi Fiann,

    Heard you on radio this morning and was just wondering if you design gardens for people?

    Many thanks,

    O wow!
    I was blown away by your interview with Marian F on Sat.
    I am straight jkted into living a life of chasing mortgage etc etc. But you sound like you are living my dream life.
    I’m sure it did not fall into your life. Like an invite through the letterbox. But many congrats on choosing to inspire your followers with such a noble subject!
    I already have an order for your book marked n my calender for May. I would love to be added to your blog list. Or whatever the correct title is. This is the first time I will be reading a blog. Time is precious!

    Hi Fiann

    Heard you today in Bandon, you were terrific! You should be on national radio & TV every week informing people how to live better lives through their gardens. Inspiring!

    Hi Fiann,

    I saw you on Ireland AM this morning and I just wanted to say how intrigued I was by your presentation of food and their nutritional/health benefits. Having done modules on nutrition in college it was refreshing to hear it so eloquently. Love the honey and grape juice idea. Great stuff.
