The last few years have been a time of incredible growth and change here at Floret. Before I tell you about some of the exciting things we have on the horizon, here’s a quick look back at where we’ve been and how it all began.
Floret started small. Really small. Right in my backyard.
Not long after moving to the country, I planted a double row of sweet peas in my garden in memory of my great grandmother.
Those first few blooms were the start of something big.
Over time our little garden grew into a bustling flower farm and design studio that supplied blooms to grocery stores, weddings, floral designers and a bouquet subscription program every season…all on just two tiny acres.
For many, many years it was just me with some help from the kids and Chris after (and before) his day job.
After trying to do it all for far too long, we finally realized that in order for Floret to grow, we would need to build a team around us to help. We’ve been extremely fortunate to find the most amazing people, and with the addition of each key player, our little business has become even more amazing.
Over the course of the last few years, we’ve been blessed with an abundance of flowers, friends and incredible opportunities: A best selling book. A bustling online shop that ships seeds, bulbs and supplies to flower lovers around the world. A wildly popular workshop series that we turned into an online course. And the most exciting part of all, a new 24-acre farm!
Throughout it all, the Floret Team has remained small and I’m in awe of everything that we’ve accomplished.
I am so incredibly grateful to you and other flower lovers like you who have supported us along the way. Having the opportunity to introduce the joy of growing and sharing flowers with others has been such an honor. It feels really great to see all of our hard work making a difference in the world.
I have some pretty big ideas for the future of Floret including two new books, a flower arranging course, expanding our flower seed line and even breeding our very own new flower varieties.
As we plot the next big things for the shop and our new farm, we are going to need some additional help. We have some exciting projects planned and are looking for some superstars to join our small but mighty team. We welcome qualified applicants to apply for the following positions:
