Hi, I’m Ciar, a writer and a mum of three (plus two hay-hungry guinea pigs) which doesn’t leave me with anywhere near as much time as I would like to pursue my passion for gardening. My offspring (aka the Little Weeds) would usually rather stare at a screen than join me in the great outdoors, unless it’s to play a dangerous sounding game on the trampoline (crack the egg anyone?). I want to change that and have a year (hopefully more) of living wholesomely – spending more time outside, growing our own fruit, veg and flowers and creating fantastic places to work, rest and play in our newish back garden. As we don’t have enough space for the potager of my dreams I want to grow flowers and edibles (and edible flowers) together where possible – hence the name of the blog. Plus wild carrot (Daucus carota) and English Marigold (Calendula officinalis) are two of my favourite healing herbs!

You can also find me on Instagram and Twitter as @wildecarrot
