Floret Joins the Magnolia Network

Written by
Floret

 January 4, 2021 Update: The first episode of our documentary series, Growing Floret, is now available on the new Discovery streaming service, discovery+. This exciting news is a big surprise since the new Magnolia Network won’t debut until July 15, 2021. Also premiering are brand new episodes of Fixer Upper, Joanna’s new cooking show, and the first episodes of nine other original series, including ours. 

What makes this announcement so exciting is that you don’t have to have cable television to be able to watch our show. You can now stream it as you do Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, and view it on your mobile device, tablet, computer, game console, or connected TV (Roku). Subscriptions range from $5 to $7 per month, depending on whether you want an ad-free version. Discovery+ is currently running a 7-day free trial. The show is only available to watch here in the U.S. at this time, but as soon as we know more about international availability, we will be sure to share.

To learn more visit the discovery+ website: discoveryplus.com.

A huge shout out to the team and our friends at Blue Chalk Media for working around the clock to get this special first episode ready in time to debut with the new discovery+ launch—it was no small feat! There’s no one we’d trust more to tell our story in such a beautiful and authentic way.

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.


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. 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. 

It has been so hard to keep such an exciting secret for so long, and I’m thrilled that we can finally share the news.

    The photography on season 1 episode 2 is really stunning. The morning frost on the dahlias is by far the most beautiful flower photography I have ever seen. And the time lapse photography from frost to death of the flower was a totally “wow” moment.

    I also binge watched the show starting last night and just finished it. I adored the show and quickly posted on FB and messaged a few people who I knew would enjoy it as well. The dedication and journey was inspiring. I don’t know who said “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” but you certainly proved it true! Congratulations and thank you for sharing your story🌸

    Thanks to all at Floret Farm!
    Like a lot of Gardeners, the love of flowers usually starts with a grandparent and Erin’s journey parallels a lot of us. Thanks for kicking loving and growing flowers onto another level. The series so far is inspiring, emotional and awesome. Please never lose your overall generosity and humanity.

    I watched it without interruption as I sipped my strong coffee.
    My dad was a passionate gardener, after his 9-5 job.
    I am not a gardener, but the original 60’s “flower child” at heart. After all my mom named me after a flower. Nature is where I find truth and sublime comfort.
    I commend you for your perseverance and passion, your sense of community, and for the beauty you bring to us who found you. Congratulations and much success!

I am over the moon thrilled to see your show on Magnolia network and I can’t stop thinking about it! You have inspired me to increase my tiny back yard garden and I’ll be planting two new raised beds this spring. They are small, but just enough for me to manage. I’m an OLD retired florist. But I’m excited!! Thank you and your team so much for your hard work and inspiration!! June Sweeny, Wilmington NC

    I found Floret a couple days ago by watching Laura from Garden Answer on You Tube. She pulled out the most beautiful calendar I had ever seen and mentioned it was from Floret. All day long it popped in my mind that I needed to look up that calendar but I kept forgetting. Last night I remembered and came to the website only to find that it was completely sold out. After browsing the site I stumbled upon the Discovery + announcement. I immediately downloaded it and signed up for the free trial to watch your show. Let me just say I teared up numerous times. What an incredible story! I’ve been vegetable gardening for several years and just recently fell in love with the idea of cut flowers. This show only heightens that love. Well done! I look forward to seeing more!

Your hard work has paid off and added beauty to the world.

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!

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.

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!!

How. Do. You. Do. It. Amazing. I admire your hard work and dedication. I totally get that it takes a village. You have an army. Congratulations on all your success and for following your dreams and putting yourself out there. ♥️

    Congratulations! Emily, Chris, the kids, and the entire team….you all deserve this! Your passion, your dream to inspire the world. That’s awesome! The words at the end of the video “now that we get to do this-its terrifying!” tear jerked me. It is where I am exactly this very day! May that which terrifies us, be what continues to ignite us, and others, on fire for what really matters! Thank you for sharing the beauty of FLORET, the beauty of a life not only well lived but blooming brightly! Cheers to more exciting dreams in the future!!!

    Truly inspirational! Cannot wait to see this show and explore your farm with you!….. We have been following you for several years now. I stumbled upon Jennie Love’s blog about 6 or 7 years ago and caught your named mentioned in a story. Started following you then. 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!

    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 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??
