#GrowFloret Giveaway

Written by
Floret

Oh man–scrolling through all of the photos on Instagram that show so many people sowing their first seeds of the season (and in a few cases it was for the first time in their lives!) makes me so unbelievably happy. What fun to see all the beauty that fellow flower lovers are planting, growing, and creating all over the globe.

I especially love all the beautiful styled vignettes featuring Floret seed packets along with vintage-inspired valentines, plants, pets, little people and more (see them here and here).

To keep the momentum going as we move into the heart of “seed starting season,” I want to kick off a new #GrowFloret giveaway.

Here is how to enter to win a goody bag full of Floret seeds and swag:

Share a photo of your seed packets, seed starts or baby plants on Instagram and tag it with #GrowFloret and/or #FloretSeeds.  

Haven’t purchased any of our seeds? No problem! You can enter by simply leaving a comment here on the blog. In your comment, tell us what flowers you’re most excited to grow this season.  

UPDATE:  Congratulations to our March winners:  Tina, Alison, Syd, Stephanie and Lucy, and lcriman.

Thanks for playing along!

    We just bought 30 acres to farm food, flowers, and family! Yes, you can grow family – a job for everyone! We’ve never done this before, and can not wait to get the land ready for some beautiful Floret Flowers for our family farm!

    We have snow this morning, but I have nine packets of Floret seeds, and cannot wait to start them indoors. I am going to buy seed starter today! Yay! So, today kicks off my growing season. Yay again. I love your posts. When it warms up some I will put everything outdoors on my patio table; then in my pots. Alas, I am forced to be a container gardener.

    Oh Boy….. isn’t that what a dining table is for? to hold all the seed starters? Just this week planted the sweet pea seeds that I bought from you this year. Hoping to have a bumper crop of all the different varieties and loads of bouquets to ‘sweeten’ the house come summer.

    I am enjoying my small bouquets of beautiful black and white Anenomes

    I started my Cosmos seeds and they are really leggyabout 4” with just 2 leaves. Should I pinch them ?
    Any suggestions ?

    My partner and I are moving to land in less than a month where I will finally get to have my first market flower garden. I am all butterflies with anticipation to see how the orchard on the land fairs this springtime- I can’t wait to breath in the apple blossoms. I’m most excited to begin establishing perennials come the fall and in the meantime get to play with annual cuts like celosia, sunnies, and foliage too ORACH! <3

    I would be excited to grow the sweet peas as most of your gorgeous colours are simply not available here in Australia. Also the Iceland poppies – I bought a packet from the supermarket and the only thing that came up where the orange California poppies! I love your site and started growing Dahlias this year – some success and plenty of Tubers to give away come Winter. all the best, congratulation on your success, Cheers Dawn.

    Warm days are approaching here in Colorado. Last year, I planted over 450 dahlia, lily and gladiolus bulbs in the backyard along with peony and rose bushes and this year will be upping the game and adding ranunculus (tips for growing in labile, CO spring weather appreciated), calla lillies, more dahlias. and a variety of fillers – many of which I will be purchasing from seed here. I love making bouquets for friends and family and look forward to the possibility of flower catering some small parties this summer! Just bought your book!

    This year I’m excited about upping my quantities of Rattlesnake Master and Black Foliaged Bugbanes. This eryngiym is very architectural and love using the purple foliage of the bugbane as a filler. Your passion for sweet peas is catchy, so I’ll be trying those for the first time.

    I am getting married this year and I am going to try to grow all of the flowers for my bouquets and centerpieces! Zinnias are one of my favorites so I plan to incorporate a lot of them. I’ve also been interested in drying arrangements so I am going to be trying many strawflower varieties, gomphrena, and black tipped wheat. I have always loved flowers but this past year my knowledge has grown and so are my flower beds! I have purchased many books, including yours, and have worked with local farms to get more experience. I am thankful for farmers like you who share their knowledge and passion and help inspire others like myself.

    Thrilled with the zinnias I planted last year-great color choices in peach/salmon/lime. When I was little, my nickname was “sweet pea”; love your selection and hope to allot a size able portion of my flower garden to growing them. Nothing like a bouquet of sweet peas to brighten someone’s day.

    I tear up every time I walk outside and see all they ways you have changed my garden and my world, inside and out. I watch your online courses, reread my notes and make checklists everyday to accomplish all in my botanical space. Every dream that slides out of a seed packet into the soil starts it’s precious beautiful journey that I get to watch, fret, experiment and work hard for the “aha” moment that I know you sincerely what us all to have. 8000 babies are started in our greenhouse and your techniques including the Johnny’s seeder have made so much possible. I can with a little help get round two of another 5000 going easily this week even in the snow. I did buy a lot seed packets to support you because I believe in you and your wonderful team as game changers of the world. But I also bought a lot so that I could give away, and enjoy the losses with a smile as all the things that go wrong can be easily endured. I am a child of the earth born on the prairies where at dusk while making my last mud pie of the day you hear the thunder, race around putting away the yard and then you huddle together in fear and listen to the hail flatten everything and punch a hole in the picture window. As the storm would subside I remember now I have seen my father with a bent head between his elbows at the kitchen table and then later hearing my parents whisper. We four children in about 1962 all whispered after the storm. Then in the morning I would awake to sun, birds singing, the smell of a special breakfast and only now as I write this realizing my parents had been up at dawn starting a new chapter. As I walk outside to the best smell on earth (sorry only available on dusty prairies after a hail and rain storm) and see my parents have already been tidying up the yard, planting again, canning the tomatoes, freezing the garden to get ready for a lean year and the hope of a new year in the field. I don’t have any friends except my husband who are like me so being with all of you and reading all the Instagram posts is a very personal special part of my life because their lives are who I really am. This is why I love you, all of you and your seeds because at 62 I can be who I am and because of you it’s now cool and maybe not so crazy to really feel what the earth can do under your feet.! xo

    Last year I had my first cutting garden. I converted a small fire pit in the backyard to a round bed of Zinnias and marigolds. That small bed gave me 10 times the enjoyment of my vegetable gardens—I’m now hooked on growing cut flowers. This year, the ‘ firepit’ Is gone and in its place a newly cultivated 12’ x 25’ cutting bed, just waiting to be planted in a couple of weeks. I’m excited to have an abundance of fresh cut flowers around my house and for me to share with others. And I am dreaming of a day when I may even grow enough to sell. Floret has been one of my inspirations along this journey. Thank you!

    Like your story, my love of flowers began as a young child with memories of sweetpeas growing in my grandmother’s Mississippi garden. That love for flowers (and sweetpeas in particular) extended naturally to my mother, and then on to me. I’ve never quite escaped it. Flowers are my go-to…sourced from my garden 3 season a year, and sourced from my flower budget during winter :). I married a man who designs landscapes for a living, and our overflowing vegetable garden & rose cutting garden are going to be extended this year with some rows of nostalgic sweetpeas thanks to this wonderful website & company.

    This is my first year offering a Cut Flower CSA, and I am every bit of excited and scared out of my mind. I purchased 3 different varieties of your Dahlia’s, and I am fascinated and can’t hardly wait to plant them. I also bought about 30 other varieties from Floret, however without Instagram, I am unable to post pictures. I am also intrigued with the Belles of Ireland and I am looking forward to planting those as well. I will begin sowing some of these beauties next week and I have written out my CSA weekly bouquet plan and then of course changed it a million different times. I have read your book and I am very inspired. You are the reason I have a Cut Flower CSA and I am excited to journey down this road. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, experiences, and trials.

    Well…I must say that I am most looking forward to the blooming of my sweet peas. They kindly self-seed for me each year, and subsequently produce unique color combinations. I love letting them self-seed so that I have to wait to see the outcome of their inner loveliness! There is something so thrilling about the anticipation involved in waiting for something beautiful.

    Hello! I would LOVE to win your seeds. I just took a two-day flower farming workshop at the U of Wisconsin, Madison and am excited to start a serious cutting garden with 2 42″x15′ beds with support nets. I bought your book and am following your suggestions. Thank you! Flowers I now know I want to start from seed (first time I’m doing this!) include sweet peas, cosmos, zinnias, lisianthus, bells of Ireland, larkspur, poppies, globe amaranth, sunflower …and more! I need to make a long list and then shorten it! Thanks for all of your help – works in Minneapolis on the 45th parallel too!

    My eyes are wide with excitement to choose a few flowers I would hope to plant this spring. But then trying to narrow it down to a few, I find myself feeling like Drew Barrymore in the movie Ever After where her love of books overwhelms her as she tries to only select one… “I could no sooner choose a star in the heavens!” Each one is so unique and delightful on their own… I’m not sure which ones to pick as this is all still so new! I appreciate the delicacy of poppies and the brilliant colors and shape of the dahlia! The peonies are always a favorite as they open and frangence the air so close to my birthday up here in Wisconsin. I’m learning foliage is so important as it enhances the whole bouquet. These might be a few of my favorite things…

    I have been preparing a wildflower bed and I can’t wait to see the results. I have planted numerous flowers over the years, but I am learning the better way to prepare the beds so I hope to have a spectacular show this year. I love all kinds of flowers and plants. Flowers is one of my most deepest passions. I learned a lot through studying books and hands on the last 25 years. This year I enrolled in a Master Gardening class to further my knowledge and be able to share what I know with others. I am super excited that I have found others that share my love for all flowers. There is nothing like fresh cut flowers in your home. I haven’t order any seeds from you yet because you were sold out of the ones I wanted to try. Zinnias seems to do the best in the south where I live. Here is a list of some of my favorite flowers to grow, Comos, Sweet Peas, Iceland Poppies, Strawflowers, Zinnias, Bachelor Buttons, Larkspur, Ranunculus, Snapdragons, Basil, Cilantro, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme, Purple Cone Flowers, Globe Amaranth, Amaranth Mira, Amaranth Opopeo, Shasta Daisies, Roses, and many, many more. I am looking forward to trying some of your seed. Love to dig in that dirt…don’t you! Thanks for what you are doing…it is a blessing to others.

    I’m so excited, my Floret sweet pea seeds arrived in McLaren Vale, Australia today. In Oz our grandparents taught us to plant sweet peas on the 17th of March which is St Patrick’s day. For me it is smack bang in the middle of vintage when I am flat out harvesting grapes and making wine. So that I remember I have propped the stunning card that came with the seeds next to my computer screen. Whilst I wait for the harvester in the middle of the night I am going to plan my winter seed planting and order so that the seeds arrive at the end of vintage, when I have a little quite time. Happy growing everyone.

    For now I am dreaming of planting sweet peas along the fence line of the driveway, they are happiness and joy in physical form. My grandpa had a gift in the garden, flowers and food alike. He was gone before I was old enough to glean his knowledge but I believe I inherited his love of plants. The more I grow the more I feel that connection.

    I just finished reading your book (on Kindle) and am so inspired to plant flowers this year!!! I inherited several raised beds at my office and last year dabbled in some vegetables but lost interest when the local wildlife devoured everything and the weeds took over. I now have renewed hope that I came make something beautiful of the area though. Dahlias have been my favorite flower, but I love the ideas you have for incorporating all these other seasonal flowers into bouquets. I can’t wait to get started! Now if this snow we just got in NW Oregon would melt away … more time for planning though!

Last year inspired by your lovely site we overhauled our garden and put in beds. It took us most of the spring so we didn’t get much planting in but this year we’re going to really make it shine. I’m so excited to begin!!! I think I’m most excited about growing this year are the amazing black & white anemones and the green zinnias I’ve ordered from your shop.

My friend mentioned your book to her family, and they gave her a copy for Christmas. Talk about spreading beauty, joy, and love all around! We love to look at the photos since your book is really about growing flowers in Washington state and we both live on the border of WA/BC. I have been selling flowers from my driveway, and people stop by delighted to pick up beautiful arrangements. I would love to grow some beautiful flowers on my back lot, and include those in my arrangements.

This year I am going to try comos, larkspur, zinnias, sunflowers, bachelor buttons, lemon basil, snap dragon, globe amaranth, rudbeckia, purple cone flowers, strawflowers, foxgloves and many others. We’ll see which ones will do well for me this year. I am very passionate about flowers and love them all. I have not ordered any seeds from you yet because you were sold out of the seeds that I was interested in trying. Here is my list of some of my favorites, Amaranth Mira, Shirley Poppy Supreme, Sunflower Frilly, Sweet Pea Charlie’s Angel, Sweet Pea Dynasty, Sweet Pea Grower’s Choice Ambrosia Mix, Sweet Pea Grower’s Choice Berry Mix. I look forward to trying some of your seeds. Here’s to the love of digging into the dirt, planting seeds, and watching them grow. Then comes the enjoyment of fresh cut flowers to share with others.

A young farmer couple is scheduled to marry in the garden this summer, so I have extra motivation to grow big and beautifully!

    Hello Floret and Fellow Flower Friends!! I have previously been a perennial gardener with a few pots of basic annuals, but I am planting up a large portion of my yard as a cutting garden this year. I’ve read the beautiful Cut Flower Garden book, read almost all the blogs, begun a planner, and may or may not have gotten slightly carried away purchasing seeds and dahlias. I can’t express how excited I am to try new varieties like Bells of Ireland, Stock (which I previously had never even heard of), and several different kinds of Snapdragons, Sweet Peas, and Zinnias. I have watched Erin’s “making market bouquets” video a handful of times and I can’t wait to make my own. We are relatively new “empty nesters” and I’m excited for this next chapter with all my new flower babies!! Keep up the great work Floret!

I wish I could have acres in beautiful Mother of Pearl Poppies, Hollyhocks, Pink Señorita Zinnias and some Cosmos Velouette but will have to settle for a little flower bed this year. All the Dahlias are just gorgeous. I would love to do what you are doing!

    My brother is starting his own cut flower farm this year. And since I’m moving house right in the middle of planting season, I sent him a couple of my favorite varieties from Floret; Sherbet Iceland Poppies and Fiber Optic Grass. I can’t wait to see them grow and bring joy to others as he starts his business!

    This was supposed to be my first year growing and selling cut flowers and was planning on growing around 3,000 sq ft of flowers. However, my husband and I now have our first baby due in June so the full effect of that dream will have to wait until next year. I am still going to grow and experiment with a few varieties and am most excited about sweet peas. They grow wild in western Oregon where I used to go blackberry picking with my grandma. Excited about growing some with stems long enough to actually fit in a vase.

    This is my first year starting from seeds and I am terrified. I created a sowing chart, which gives me dates for when to plant. Roughly 6 different flower seeds are in their happy little trays now, but many have been slow to pop out of the dirt. Is this normal!? I have a seed mat and a grow light. The grow light I just turned on last night, so hopefully that will help. It’s so nerve-racking waiting for those little seedlings to pop up!

    I really hadn’t planned on growing my cut flower garden this year since we just moved in to a new house and I want to get the “bones” in place (trees, shrubs, etc.) but the more flower posts I see the more I realize I can’t live a summer without them! I got some iris and peonies in the ground last fall, and I’ll probably plant some zinnias (in a container at the very least), but I might give sweet peas a try in a container too.

    This is the first year of actually planting my new garden, purchased 3 summers ago. The prep work is finally done! This will be the first garden since I was a child where I can grow sweet peas. When my great-grandmother became widowed I spent as much time with her as I could to keep her company. One day when we were sitting in her garden sharing tea and cookies in her treasured china tea cups, she handed me the cup with sweet peas on it and told me that sweet peas always made her think of me because when I was very tiny I had brought her a bouquet of them. I hadn’t remembered taking them to her until she reminded me of it, but suddenly I remembered the long strings of lusciously scented, multi-colored flowers planted all along our back fence and, later, clutching the big bunch of flowers on the way to Great Grandma’s house. So of all the lovely, exciting things I plan to put into my garden this year the sweet peas are probably the most thrilling.

We spent last summer cleaning up the yard. Now, I’m dreaming of flowing garden beds filled with bee, bird & butterfly friendly flowers, a veggie/herb garden, and a cutting garden next to the (she)d. And comfy places for the humans to sit and enjoy. So much work, but the end results will (hopefully) be beautiful & beneficial.

    Hello from North St. Louis, Mo. We love to grow flowers and because we do not have a greenhouse or room enough in basement, we always have to grow directly in ground. So many favorites, but I look forward to growing Wallflowers and Irish Poet again this year, along with Zinnias and Sunflowers.

    I didn’t purchase seeds from you this year but you better believe I bought dahlia tubers! I’m so eager to expand my dahlia varieties. From seed, I’m psyched and proud to have started my lisianthus roseanne brown, and delphinium from seed with a 90%+ germ rate! Finally I got it! I’m hoping my luck continues with getting my sweet peas to flower….. ;)

    Everything! We are more than doubling the size of our garden this year because our 8 year old really wants to grow LOTS of flowers and vegetables that he can give away to people in need. He is always thinking about others and how he can help them and the environment. At first I thought it was just phase but it keeps getting stronger with each passing year so maybe this will be his life’s calling?!? Now I just have to find enough mommy time to be supportive and not squash his dreams…

    Ps. Thanks for all the great How To posts! He and I have really been enjoying looking through them all and learning things together :)

    Growing: Chinese Asters (tower chamois 2nd year, I love them!) Found violet and a pale yellow I’m trying this year. Also new to me Ammobium (winged everlasting). Lots of yellow button and Daisy types. (Feverfew/Tetra/Magic Single) Craspedia Sun Ball(yellow drumstick flowers). Probably went overboard. I grow Dahlias, snapdragons, hydrangeas, larkspur. My Canterbury bells are on year 2, so I can’t wait to see them bloom! I am glad you are asking this question, I have the winter blahs and wasn’t really looking forward to getting started… I needed to think about the flowers, not the work ahead. Thank you!

    Zinnias because they’re gorgeous and my grandpa used to grow them every year! 😊

    I have purchased some seeds from you 😀 but I don’t do Instagram. I am excited to grow the different colors of Bachelor Button that I purchased from you! I have always grown the usual blue and pink and wondered why they didn’t come in dark colors yet🌼 Now I know they do!

    It’s my first time growing cut flowers and very I’m crazy excited to try sweet peas, cosmos, snapdragons, poppies and bachelor’s buttons. Thank you for all of the great advice. I’m sure that I will have much more fun and less frustration using your methods!

    I want a field of vibrant zinnias all shapes, colors and sizes! They make such great cut flowers in all my little vases around the house.

    Planting seeds during a Wisconsin snow storm gives me hope of a spring that is sure to come. Looking forward to harvesting some new varieties of sweet peas I bought from Floret.

    While I can’t wait for Dahlia season I would say I am most excited to start growing more vines! Sweet peas, love in a puff and nasturtium to name a few ☺️

    Sweet Peas. I didn’t have a appropriate trellis for it last year and it didn’t get to follow except 2 blooms, but they smelled heavenly. Didn’t want to give up, so I purchased a tall support for it for this year and just noticed my first sprouts yesterday.

    Trying to get into having more flowers, but they are pretty intimidating. Right now I grow mainly Zinnias for butterfly attraction. Others I have popping up right now are daffodils, Iris, and I can’t wait to see the first signs of snowbells I planted last year. I want to grow more cut flower type flowers, trying to break free.

    Spring is showing here in East Anglia, UK, despite frequent frosts and snowy mornings. Now illness has forced me into giving up work way too soon, I’m eager to use the time with planting as many seeds as my porches and windowsills can hold, especially Foxgloves, Cosmos, and Love-in-a-Mist. Gardening is my inspiration and my joy and I can’t wait to see my garden bloom again this year. Thank you for the inspiration, Floret Flowers!

    I’m looking so much forward to grow the different kind of Phlox from you. I’m still waiting for the mailman to deliver them. This year will be the most incredible year ever – I’ll grow as many flowers as I’ve never did before. All inspired by you :o)

    I’m looking to add more fillers and greens this year to complement all the dahlias and other focal flowers. Love in a Puff and friends are fabulous and I’m trying several things that have the “baby’s breath” look like orlaya and didiscus.

    Will be ordering seeds from you today — I’ve had a tough time narrowing it down. I most excited about the Icelandic poppies (the Sherbet mix with those warm, delicate colors) and the wispy, dreamy feather top grass.

    Oh this giveaway is so exciting!! This is the first year I’m able to grow flowers of my own and I am so excited! I’m hoping to grow a variety so that I can always have fresh flowers in my home and give some to friends and family too!
