About Fiona M. Eadie

Fiona Eadie was born and raised in Dunedin and completed a BSc in Botany at Otago University. On completion of her degree she and her partner moved to Auckland, where she spent four years undertaking native forest research with the Forest Service and then DOC, a few years managing a delicatessen and eleven years managing the famous Oratia Native Plant Nursery. In 2001 they headed back to their beloved South Island, closer to the 'paddock' they had bought just out of Alexandra. They live in Dunedin, and for the past 12 years Fiona has been head gardener at Larnach Castle, whose gardens are internationally renowned. She also teaches horticultural apprentices throughout New Zealand and has a regular column in Commercial Horticulture, where she teaches readers about the wonders of plants, and a gardening slot on on Radio Live. As she says, ' I love plants, and within plants, my largest passion is with New Zealand natives.'
