Can’t get enough!!!

I am loving this podcast. Sarah and Nicole are funny, honest, informative, and embrace everything flower related with such enthusiasm. For someone like myself who is just starting their first year of growing cut flowers to sell, I couldn’t of ask for a better pairing of Flower Fairy Godmothers to help me on this daunting journey.
