Somehow I completely missed the release Netflix’s latest reality competitive series, The Big Flower Fight. It’s being pegged as ‘The Great British Bake Off’, but with plants, so just count me IN.
So in The Big Flower Fight, ten pairs of florists, sculptors, and garden designers from around the world push their talents to the limit to create extravagant as hell floral installations. The show is hosted by Vic Reeves and Natasia Demetrio. In each episode, the contestants will battle it out in a themed challenge to avoid elimination. Their fate in the competition lies in the hands of head judge Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht – strong name – and a handful of guest judges. Winners will have their sculptures displayed at London’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
It looks positively delightful, like the type of content you watch on a Saturday morning with a warm cuppa. I have only watched the trailer, but this tweet alone makes me want to binge it right now.

If you think I didn't gasp when I opened Netflix and saw The Big Flower Fight (which is a new competition about 'garden sculpture') you would be wrong.

Someone said The Big Flower Fight is like The Great British Bake Off, but with plants. So I checked it out last night and COULD NOT STOP WATCHING. pic.twitter.com/Mm0ADHStq6

Has anyone watched The Big Flower Fight on Netflix? Henck & Yan's outfits get progressively more outre as the season proceeds. They are amazing artists, stuff they design is breathtaking, in beauty & scope. Personal style reminds me of steampunk crossed w/club kids of the 80's. pic.twitter.com/skVDeLOSWt

Not to be dramatic but I'd take a bullet for Jim & Ralph on The Big Flower Fight pic.twitter.com/RrBMJpOBDe

Ryan & Andrew are amazing, but my absolute favourites on #BigFlowerFight are the father & son Ralph and Jim. They have worked together so wonderfully throughout the series & come on in leaps & bounds. Everyone should have a dad like Ralph.

I don't understand why we're not all talking about The Big Flower Fight on Netflix (basically a pleasant GBBO ripoff, with flowers) and the fact that the head judge is named…

Can't stop thinking about this flower sculpture on The Big Flower Fight that's meant to be a Chinese guardian lion but looks like Socky from The Den pic.twitter.com/TU09CasBne

The Big Flower Fight – all eight episodes of it – is streaming now on Netflix.
(It’s a 95% match for me on Netflix, which says it all. I’m so mad I didn’t hear about this sooner.)
Do you know what it reminds me of? Blown Away. If you haven’t watched the series yet, it’s pretty much in the same lane – except the contestant are glassblowers. Every episode, the gifted contestants compete to avoid elimination, creating the most bizarre and extraordinary works of art. It’s great viewing – something you’d binge once and then play in the background afterwards. That sort of content.Image: Netflix
