Floret Joins the Magnolia Network

Written by
Floret

After nearly a year of secrecy, I am so excited to finally be able to share the incredible news that we’ve been filming a documentary series about our farm for Chip and Joanna Gaines’s upcoming Magnolia network!

This new television network is part of Chip and Jo’s joint-venture with Discovery, Inc., and will debut in early October. Programming will center on home and gardening, food, design, lifestyle, and most importantly, community. We are thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of this groundbreaking new television network.

Behind the scenes filming for the new Floret documentary on Magnolia network About a year ago we received a flurry of requests out of the blue from a wide range of production companies who were trying to come up with show ideas that centered on gardening. The ideas ranged from high-drama competition-style shows to container gardening on a studio set in Florida.

After sitting through close to a dozen conference calls, it became abundantly clear that none of the show concepts were a good fit for us. We sat down as a team and decided that we were done entertaining the idea of any type of show unless we could tell the real story of Floret and the bigger mission we’re working towards.

Filming the new Floret documentary on Magnolia network While I have really big goals for both Floret and myself, being on TV hasn’t been one of them. Television is not something that’s been a big part of our lives. In fact, for years all we had was an old VHS player, and Jasper and Elora never watched regular TV unless we were at a hotel. 

Filming bulb planting for the new Floret documentary on Magnolia network But a few years ago, a friend was talking about this couple who had a small business where they worked together and were trying to make their dream a reality. She said that even though our businesses were completely different, their story was similar to our own and that I should check out this show called Fixer Upper.

Within minutes of watching the first episode I was struck by how down-to-earth and genuine Joanna and Chip seemed, and was surprised and delighted to finally find something we could watch together as a family. 

Filming the dahlia field for the Floret documentary on new Magnolia network Since then I’ve actively followed the Gaineses’ journey as they’ve navigated the incredible growth of their business. The way in which they’ve stayed true to their values and prioritized their family has been inspiring and has served as a good example for Chris and me to follow.

It’s rare, and refreshing, to see another couple making it work so well, given the pressure and challenges that come with running a small business and working alongside your spouse every day. 

Filming field of dahlias for the new Floret documentary on Magnolia network After sitting through so many dead-end meetings, we had been convinced that television was off the table. But that all changed when we got a call from the Magnolia team. Unlike every other interaction, this was one that made it clear that they were genuinely interested in what we were up to here at Floret. They didn’t pitch any smarmy show ideas or try and sway us into a heavily scripted, high-drama production.

Instead, they wanted to tell the story of our growing business, our family, and the incredible team that works with us every day. The Magnolia team was insistent that they could find a production company that would honor our story and be able to capture the magic that we’re making here at Floret. 

Behind the scenes filming Growing Floret for the Magnolia NetworkAfter a few weeks of discussions, they sent Blue Chalk Media, an award-winning Portland-based production company to the farm for three days to film a “sizzle reel,” which is essentially a trailer for a potential TV show.

The first day they arrived, we all were a bundle of nerves. We’ve filmed plenty of videos with our small DSLR camera, but the idea of having an entire crew with professional camera gear and sound equipment following us around was really intimidating. But their talented team immediately put us at ease, and we couldn’t have asked for a kinder, funnier, and easy-going crew. 

Behind the scenes filming Growing Floret for the Magnolia NetworkRight after the film crew left, we finished the last round of edits on A Year in Flowers, packed our bags for England, and left the country for two glorious weeks. While we were away, Blue Chalk Media flew to Waco, Texas, to share the sizzle reel with the Magnolia team.

The meeting was a huge success, and our documentary series got the green light.

Behind the scenes filming Growing Floret for Magnolia NetworkAs soon as we got home from England, the filming began, and we’ve been shadowed by the crew pretty much ever since. It’s hilarious how quickly we’ve all gotten used to the cameras and microphones being on!

But the experience has actually been a total blast, and we’re having a really good time. 

Behind the scenes filming Growing Floret for the Magnolia NetworkIt has been so hard to keep such an exciting secret for so long, and I’m thrilled that we can finally share the news. Now that we can openly talk about the project, we’ll be updating you with more information as soon as we have it. 

I am beyond grateful that Joanna and Chip felt that our story was one worth telling, and I’m so excited to share more about our farm and our journey with you very soon.

UPDATE: 

On Sunday, April 26th, Chip and Joanna hosted a 4-hour network preview event called Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead that kicked off with a “look back” at where it all began with the wildly popular show Fixer Upper, including some never-seen-before footage. Afterwards, Chip and Jo offered a sneak peek at the first shows to debut on the network, including our original series, Growing Floret. The special aired on the DIY Network, which will soon become the Magnolia Network

In case you missed it, the special will re-air on Saturday, May 16th at 11AM PST. Check out the DIY Network website for more information. The snippet about our show is approximately 15 minutes into Episode 4: A Look Ahead.

Many of our international followers have asked about how they can tune in from abroad and sadly international access is not available yet. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear.

    I have been following your IG feed for some time. My husband and I are getting ready to renovate and build a residence in a 93 year old elementary school house with some acreage. I am set on a flower cutting garden to go with it and can not wait to order favorite seeds from you.
    Looking forward to seeing your show in October. Break a leg!

    Bummer, the DIY Network GO App is not available for any Apple products in Canada and not for Amazon Fire TV either. If you don’t have a TV plan then I guess you can’t watch it. Only for the US it seems. That gets so old, sigh.

    Congratulations Erin and the Floret team! You are an awesome business owner, and you generously share your knowledge freely so that other aspiring flower farmers can be successful in their businesses. I am one of them. I started small with Dahlias two years ago and hope to grow the business this year with perennials and annuals. Your book and blog have provided invaluable insight into how to develop an intensive flower growing operation and I am grateful for your generosity! The opportunity to team up with the Magnolia family is truely an example of how selfless giving to others results in receiving an abundance of generosity in return. I am looking forward to watching the show and seeing your farm in action! Best wishes for your continued success!

    OMG! OMG! Happy for you guys!!!!! Love the new book. Well another chapter has opened up for you. When I saw Joanna I should have put it together…just thought hmmmmm..wonder what’s going on there? I hope you write about this new journey cause I would love to be a fly on the wall!!!! Don’t forget to just breathe a little — I know how hard you’ve worked and how far you’ve come. More land, book, TV… and it started with sweet peas……….I’ll be watching from Indiana! I also agree with the other mother daughter duo from In. seems slow to catch on here.. too rural in my area maybe? Still trying to spread flower joy and love here!!! 8 yrs for me. CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FLOWER LOVE !!!!!Good Luck guys.

    Erin!!! I’m so proud and excited for you! I’m a very new flower farmer; 4 years in the making, 2 growing, and 1 actually selling. Many of my friends and neighbors are tagging me in this announcement. I’m telling them that most of what I know about flower farming, I learned from you. It occured to me that I should tell you! I knew nothing about growing cut flowers when I set out to be a flower farmer. I began reading everything I could get my hands on when I came across your blog. I spent many late nights reading every post you’d written (the “this week on the farm” was particularly helpful). I’m so thankful for your willingness to share all that you know. It’s a dream of mine to meet you one day. Thank you a million times over for paving the way!!

    I was listening to you say how terrifying it is now that your dream of owning more land has come true.
    It’s always so much easier dreaming it because we choose how the journey goes. When the dream becomes reality we think – Oh no can I handle this!!
    There is a saying “For such a time as this” – you’ve travelled the bumpy road and beauty has blossomed from it. Twenty years of growing inside and outside – it has been such a blessing to hear your story.
    So looking forward to the documentary!

    Again, a big congrats go out to you, Erin, Chris, your family and your wonderfully talented team. When I excitedly share my journey with Floret with gardeners. I am constantly mentioning your style as one that is like a Martha Stewart and Joanna Gaines combined, both have influenced me greatly over the years, I love the English garden shows, but we so need one right here in the U.S. and the locally grown flower movement is so inspired by Floret. Again, so grateful you began your journey in flowers and have inspired so many of us!

Told my daughter this is someone we want to watch because they are “us”. We are a Mother/daughter duo trying to start a small scale family owned flower farm in the heart of the Midwest. Not many of us here in Indiana doing this yet. Your farm is a great inspiration and helps us in all our bumps and hiccups in our path of our tiny farm. When we need an answer you are one of the “ go to’s” we seek for information. You and the team are to be commended. …..Always learning, always growing, always blooming!

    Congratulations Erin & Chris this is so wonderful I can not wait to watch!! Planting up my floret seeds and saved seeds from last years harvest has been the light at the end of the winter tunnel for me! Looking forward to “growing” with you for years to come xo ~Holly

    I am just so, so happy for you and Chris. Your Floret magic has been so inspirational to me (Class of 2018) and my abundant gardens are a joy and a passion that was unleashed as a result of your guidance!! Bravo!!!!

    This is soooo freakin’ exciting!!!! From the launch of the online course, to a huge addition to your farm, right next door, the books, and now this! This shows us that putting one foot in front of the other and truly believing that good things will come while putting in the hard work truly pays off.

    YAY! YAY! YAY! ….. Congrats and Cheers to the Floret Team, and to Erin for her visionary quest of locally grown blooms! What a wonderful and sweet journey. The strength and honor that your team holds near and dear to their hearts is the glue to Floret. This is such an exciting time and a sweet share of news to a world that needs an true uplift. I watched the trailer a few times so that I could repeat the feel of all the excitement and love for what you are working at everyday. My tears were shed with total happiness. Your great grammy is smiling with you remembering those first Sweet Peas of happiness. I look forward to kicking my feet up and watching some floral sweetness this fall. Hip Hip Hooray Floret!!!

    This is fantastic news! For years I’ve been thinking about the dearth of mainstream programming around farming and flowers. We all know their is a huge audience for this but for some reason television programmers were slow to recognize the opportunity. It took someone from the outside, like Chip and Joanna, to see that. This opportunity couldn’t happen to a nicer team of people and is a wonderful platform to bring seasonal, responsibly American flowers to the forefront….FINALLY! Here’s to continued success!

    We are so happy for you all to be recognized for all you have done and think you are with a fantastic group to help you along on this next adventure. We feel so privileged to have been able to attend one of your 3 day hands on workshops in 2015. It doesn’t seem like it’s been 5 years but you planted a seed with us and it has and is still growing bigger every year as we are still learning. We are just getting started again with this new upcoming season and just love it. The Magnolia Group is a favorite of ours, our son Ben records and watches almost daily. Keep up the great work, we are very proud for you all and wish you the best.

    I’m SOOO SOOOO excited for you Erin (I’m sorry I forgot hubbys name) LOL
    I fell in LOVE LOVE with you when I found you in the Magnolia Magazine… and I can’t tell you what it did for me as I was in such pain from getting Lyme disease and thought I was dying… but the beauty of your work drew me in… and now two years later, we have started to transform our yard with flowers… I don’t know where it’s headed up it just feels so ‘right’. I could never grow food like my dad did, but flowers just seemed perfect. Now my husband enjoys it and we are both talking about what we will do once the snow melts here.. I can’t wait to have the beauty of flowers around me again!
    I can’t wait to see this series! I Hope we can find it because we don’t have TV either??

    Holy Moly!!! This is such wonderful and exciting news. And it feels like a natural fit that Chip and Joanna’s company would appreciate what you do at Floret. It just makes sense, and was clearly meant to be. I cannot WAIT to see the show once it’s being broadcasted. So happy for you all, not to mention all the folks that might not have discovered Floret and your mission otherwise. Here’s to strong community, care for the earth, and glorious seasonal organically grown flowers everywhere!

    Congratulations! This is huge!!! I am so happy for you and thrilled that the message of american grown flowers is going to spread far and wide. What an amazing platform to be a part of. Hopefully, the show will be aired on Hulu or Disney+ since we don’t have cable. But I will go watch it at happy hour somewhere if I have too.

    Also, watching the trailer made me cry! I don’t know why, though! I think it’s probably because I’m so excited to see a show about something I’m interested in, but also because I’m so happy for you all and can’t wait to see and hear your story.

    Team Floret! This is so incredible! The day I returned from your workshop, I told my husband you should have a made for tv series (though I said it would be on Netflix). This sounds like the perfect avenue for you to share your new farm journey. I couldn’t be more excited for you all! Congratulations to each and every one of your team members. Your hard work, long days, and ability to transition from project to project is admirable. You’re an inspiration to so many and the perfect combination of determination and humility to show what really goes into flower farming. I shared your trailer with all my plant and flower loving friends immediately. Needless to say, it sounds like we will be hosting a viewing party. Cheers to you! We cannot wait to watch.

    Wow this is so exciting! Congratulations! I love your gardens and sure wish I lived closer to your area of country. Maybe some day in our future to come your way for a visit just to see your glorious gardens, if nothing else. Thank you for sharing your wonderful story with us. I finally broke down and purchased some of your seeds this year and I can’t wait to see them all growing in my gardens.

    Great job keeping the secret. However, I’m not surprised they picked you. Well done.
