Not Impressed
First of all, Mikey is so timid and soft-spoken that she verges on being mousy and (for me at least), it gets tiresome real quick!
Second, *literally* all she is doing is buying pots, buying plants (not even raising them on her own), and potting said plants- hardly the makings of a hit show.
Third, this is all most definitely just trying to piggy-back off the success of Fixer Upper/The Magnolia empire and for all these reasons, I'm just thoroughly not impressed.
*Two stars because at least the pot/plant combos and overall aesthetic is nice.

LOVE!!!! THE RETRO PLANT SHOP!!!! WATCHING THIS WITH MY 7YR OLD! HE LOVES IT TOO!!!!
Like almost all the shows on Magnolia Network - We LOVE this one! Our little boy does too! We love all the plants and find it inspires us to get more plants and take better care of the ones we have! I love Mikey's genuine heart that SHINES through and how she names all her plants!! Its fun to see her with her sisters and her Mama...All her kiddos and the whole Family support system as she takes on her dreams coming true and managing her busy life as a mom! Mikey you are a TRUE GEM!!! Our only bummer is that we binge your show and have to wait for more!!! Can't wait to see your store!!!! Really enjoying the show! Keep 'em coming!!!

Nothing interesting here.
If anyone else other than Joanna Gaine's sister had tried to start a retro plant shop and make it into a TV series, it would have gone nowhere. There is nothing interesting to watch. Just another spin off of the Magnolia empire.

Entertaining
I enjoy watching Mikey start a business from the ground up with the help from her big sister.
It’s nice to the see the dynamic these sisters have for one anther Joanna is much more outgoing, Mikey is shy there is a valence between them.

Overall I enjoy watching this series and love seeing Joanna pop in to help her sister from time to time and of course Chip.

Learning about a Mom of 6 starting her own business.
I loved how simple and real this show is! A Mom of 6 branches out to start her own retro plant business without prior business knowledge. Mikey's realness attracted me. She is not an in your face, black and white personality. She is sensitive, creative, integral and the business side of things overwhelms her. This is life for many creative people. I appreciate how real she is with being in front of the camera for what appears to be the first time. And, she has a quirky, super funny side to her personality that makes me crack up. Mikey gets support from her big sister Joanna Gaines and the production of this show is well done and fun. It's not grand, yet it's special, unique and I get to learn from Mikey and all her help. I can't wait for more episodes!

Cool concept but lacks authenticity
I like Mikey, I love plants but this show …not so much. It seems like Joanna is carrying the show and pushing a business agenda on her sister. Mikey seems in way over her head and I agree with the other peoples comments about the whole enterprise. Kudos to Mikey for being a stay at home mom for 6 kids. I find that endeavor way more impressive and valuable!

Inspiring
I really enjoyed this show! Give it a chance because it started off a little slow, but it really captured my interest. As someone who would love to start my own business, I really enjoyed seeing the little steps that they took to create the plant shop and how it grew over time. There was also some great business advise throughout the show. I would highly recommend this show!

The sweetest.
I enjoyed every minute of this. It gives such a beautiful glimpse into the relationship between Jo and Mikey. They both have such sweet spirits. Thank you for a series with beauty, style and intentionality. Just like her shop, it's inspiring. Giggles and beauty and plant life. Perfection.
