A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is one of many series in a long line of reality shows that focus on ultra high-end services. Star/floral designer Jeff Leatham spares no expense when he designs flowers for an event ... but that's what his customers are paying for. As a role model, he can be a bit clueless, but he's also patient, creative, and resourceful. He does have a tendency to swear, but words stronger than "hell," "damn," and the like are bleeped out. Expect some social drinking and references to alcohol.

What's the story?
High-end floral designer Jeff Leatham was at the top of his game while living in Paris. Now he's trying to establish himself in New York City. FLOWERS UNCUT follows Leatham as he works with his assistant, Mat, taking on jobs and trying to build his business in a tough market. Viewers watch as the duo tackle clients' crises, come up with creative solutions, and find the perfect flowers for every situation.
Is it any good?
Like most day-in-the-life reality shows, Flowers Uncut has its moments. But thanks to the many similar wedding/events-based shows that have previously hit the airwaves, viewers have already seen flowers not arriving on time, the wrong flowers turning up, and professionals working "miracles" with just seconds to go before things have to be ready. Leatham and Mat are likeable enough, but they're not all that interesting on a long-term basis.
