If you love flowers in the spring and summer, get excited! The Magnolia Network has announced that they will have a new series called Growing Floret, which stars a married couple named Erin and Chris Benzakian. They left their big city life in Seattle in order to start a 20-acre flower farm in the Skagit River Valley in Washington State. The TV series will show the daily lives of these flower farmers, and it’s sure to be educational for those of us who love flower gardening.
1. Erin Benzakian Has Published 3 Books About Growing Flowers
Aside from being an accomplished flower farmer, Erin Benzakian is also a writer. She’s the author of Discovering Dahlias, A Year in Flowers and Cut Flower Garden. All 3 of them are amazing coffee table books. I purchased A Year in Flowers as a gift for my mom, and she absolutely loved it. This is great for beginners who want to get into gardening, but they’re not sure where to start. It’s also gorgeous to leave out for guests to browse through.
