About the Project

Created for Magnolia Network, Growing Floret “Growing Floret,” is a four-episode series that follows Erin Benzakein, the founder of Floret Flower Farm, and her husband Chris, on a year-long quest to bring more flowers into the world by expanding their flower farm.

Erin and Chris have spent the last decade building their flower business, located in the picturesque Skagit Valley in Washington, into what is considered by many to be the most well-known flower farm in the world. 

In 2018, they decided to risk it all by purchasing 24 acres of chemically damaged and over-farmed land in the hopes of rehabbing it into an extension of their existing organic flower farm.

In this series, we follow the couple as they chase their dream to rehabilitate the land and create a space where both their business and the natural world can thrive.

“Growing Floret” is now streaming on discovery+. Sign up here to start your 7-day free trial.
