Growing Floret
Season 2

What is your legacy?

This is the central question of Growing Floret season 2, and Erin wrestles with it as she works to save endangered roses, breed never-before-seen varieties of flowers, create a massive library of her work, and start writing a new book. She juggles these projects while trying to run a successful business and be a good steward of the land. Each episode unravels a different element of Erin’s most cherished values and the ones she wants to carry into the future.

This season is a four-part exploration of the past, the future, and doing the best with the time that you have now.
