Erin Benzakein - Floret  Farmer-Florist, writer, teacher, living and growing in WA State, USA. My first book: Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden now available.


For over a decade, we've dreamed of buying more land of our own. We have searched high and low for the perfect place to stretch out. We've looked at farms with beautiful soil, but with rotting, uninhabitable buildings; we've toured farms with adorable houses, but rocky, water logged land and everything in between. We have tried to buy numerous properties over the years, including the field that we rent only to have things fall through at the final hour. But two weeks ago, everything changed. We bought a farm! We had given up on the possibility of ever being able to buy a farm of our own. Yet, through an incredible combination of fortune, timing and a few miracles thrown in, we were able to purchase the farm that borders our property. This 25 acre parcel includes a huge barn that will house our seed company and boasts some of the best soil in the country. Over on the blog (link in profile) I'm sharing the backstory about this incredible twist of fate and what this move means for the future of Floret. #growfloret #farmerflorist

Dahlia 'Myrtle's Folly' giving her all right before the season ends. I love her so much! #growfloret #floretbulbs

We got all of our bulbs bagged up for shipping out next week thanks to #teamfloret πŸ’ͺ🏼 This is such a beautiful sight. So much promise for the future. #growfloret #floretbulbs

Our bulbs arrived this week from Holland and #teamfloret is gearing up for our big fall planted/spring flowering bulb launch this coming Monday morning. We have so many treasures available this year! Sign up for our newsletter (link in profile) if you want to get the full scoop. #growfloret #floretbulbs

This was captured a few nights ago before the weather finally turned cool and damp here in Washington. I'm already missing the sun. #growfloret

We're putting the finishing touches on our next Floret e-newsletter, which goes out bright and early tomorrow. If you've been wanting to know when our bulbs, seeds, dahlias, workshops and calendars will be available, be sure to get on our email list ( link in bio ) so you can get all of the exciting details. #growfloret #farmerflorist #floretbook

On days when the pain of the world feels like too much, I go in search of beauty. It's really is all around if we simply look for it. Here are the last of the sunflowers in my favorite @farmhousepottery vase. #growfloret #dsfloral

Dahlia 'Gerrie Hoek' up close. Thank you @triplewrenfarms 😘#farmerflorist #dsfloral

Beautiful 'Gerrie Hoek' Dahlias from @triplewrenfarms πŸ’• #farmerflorist

This year we put on a huge China Aster trial and now I'm completely hooked. These gems are the unsung hero of the late summer/early autumn garden. They are easy to grow, take very little care and produce loads of flowers late August through the first fall frost. What's not to love? #growfloret #floretseeds

There are signs all around the farm that the seasons are changing. Fat spiders are starting to spin webs everywhere, early mornings in the field are chilly and damp, and the flowers are beginning to slow their pace just a bit. I'm trying to soak in every ounce of magic that I can because soon all of this abundance will be gone. #growfloret #floretseeds

I'm still trying to find my footing after a few very long, very hard weeks. So many projects, timelines, deadlines, numbers, details, meetings.... Today it felt like the clouds finally parted and I could see things clearly again. There are so many wonderful things about owning a business, but sometimes the stress and pressure of trying to keep it all together can feel like too much. Thank goodness for flowers. And thank goodness for #teamfloret πŸ’«#growfloret
