Lessons from Local Leaders:

Carol Heitmuller Carrier

As the scent of nostalgia blooms in our studio, we’re joined by Carol Carrier from Plant Masters Flowers to unearth the roots of a family business that’s bringing the charm of your grandmother’s garden to your doorstep. Carol shares how her son’s leap from the corporate ladder back to the earth has sown the seeds for a thriving operation, specializing in American-grown flowers like lilacs and peonies that are too delicate for the long haul yet perfect for the local markets. Her tales of growth—both floral and entrepreneurial—remind us that the perennial nature of peonies can mirror our own resilience, and that cultivating a positive outlook can be just as essential as tending to our gardens.

Crackling with Carol’s wisdom and wit, our conversation blossoms into an essential discussion about the cohabitation of felines and foliage. She sheds light on the lesser-known hazards that some household plants pose to our furry friends, especially the dangers lilies present to cats, while providing savvy tips to ensure all your loved ones—petal or paw—can flourish safely under one roof. Carol’s zest for life encourages us to support local growers, appreciate our blessings, and to be that beacon of light in our communities, just as her flowers have brightened countless homes and markets across Maryland and DC. Listen in for a bouquet of inspiration, laughter, and life lessons in full bloom.
