I interviewed Erin almost a year ago on March 6, 2018. Her book is still incredibly awesome and I will play my review too and encourage you to write her one as well! Erin Benzakien follows my passion for flowers and has written the book she wishes was there when she started out called Floret Farm’s Cut Flower Garden: Grow, Harvest, and Arrange Seasonal BloomsI have a two acre flower farm its called Floret about an hour north of Seattle. What we’re known for is squeezing a ton of flowers into a really tiny space and we grow more like 4-5 acres in our two small little acres here.
I got a copy of Floret Farm’s Cut Flower Garden: Grow, Harvest, and Arrange Seasonal Blooms in the mail this week! I could hardly wait to get home this weekend and read it!
