Announcing the Floret Mini Course

Written by

Messages have been pouring in from around the world since we made two big announcements last week. The first, that we bought a farm and the second, that we’re converting our popular Floret Workshops into an online format. The enthusiasm, well wishes and words of support make this transition even more exciting.

The two most common themes running through all of these beautiful messages is that dreams really do come true and that with so much negativity in the world right now, it’s really refreshing to get some good news. We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to reach out to cheer us on. It means the world.


To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Floret Online Workshop, I’d love to give you a little preview of what we’ve created. We’re calling this our Floret Mini Course. In this series of free educational videos, I’ll take you behind the scenes and show you four essential skills:

  • How to make a market bouquet in less than 60 seconds
  • How to photograph your harvest from the garden
  • How to make your fresh cut flowers last longer
  • How to grow a thriving flower farm business

UPDATE:  REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED.  To be notified of future Floret courses and workshops, be sure to sign up for our newsletter

Thank you again for all of your well wishes and enthusiastic support. We can’t wait to share this next chapter with you.

    Hi team Floret,
    I received How to make a market bouquet in 60 seconds video, but unfortunately haven’t received another video since. (How to photograph your harvest from the garden)
    Hoping you can help?
    Cheers Kerry

    Hey, Erin,
    You mention working on a second book. How very exciting! To you have a projection of when you hope to have it available to the public for purchase? Thanks! Love your first book!

      Hi Jodi,

      It’s going to be a few years. The publishing industry moves at a glacial pace so it’s looking like spring of 2020 before we have the book in hand. I started Cut Flower Garden a full three years before it was in stores. It’s a crazy long time to wait!

      Thank you for your excitement : )

    Hi Erin and Chris,
    I just caught your mini-live-Instagram on the tulips and thought it was a great idea and a lot of fun – especially with it being unstaged and off-the-cuff. You guys did great and your personalities really shined =D

    I’m looking forward to the fun live feeds you do in the future. You guys are hands down the best with your content and educational offerings. Keep up the good work and the beautiful flowers. Can’t wait to see the Mini Courses and the new Online Workshop. I’m sure you will totally rock.

    Best Wishes and Many Blessings,

    I just turned 70, and began selling flowers this past summer. I am delighted with your lovely, well organized book, your web site, and your heart to share with others. Looking forward to your teaching sessions and this new chapter in my senior life! Susan Walsh

    This is sooo’ exciting I have butterflies! Thank you in advance. This year has been bittersweet leading up to this, but I believe my dream couldn’t be closer to reality now. It is necessary now to get started and grow into this new chapter of this beautiful life.
