While you should not walk through our tulip fields, we do have special pick-your-own flower farms where it’s actually encouraged! In fact, they were designed specifically for this purpose. A garden full of beautifully coloured flowers will bring a smile to anyone’s face. And it’s even better when you are allowed to pick them yourself and take home a gorgeous bouquet. Now that’s a ‘blooming’ good day out!

  • Walk among rows and rows of different flowers.
  • Pick your own floral bouquet.
  • Relax and admire the beautiful blooms.

What is a pick-your-own garden?

A pick-your-own flower farm is a garden filled with different kinds of flowers that you can pick to create your own bouquet. You will be handed a small pair of pruning shears and a basket or bucket and you then get to decide which flowers to pick. Entry is usually free of charge and you pay a small contribution for the flowers that you pick. Not only can you pick all kinds of flowers, but you can also take amazing photos among the various beautifully coloured blooms. So this is one place where you can walk among the flowers without having to worry about damaging them. And there’s an added bonus because many of the farms have delightful spots to rest while enjoying cup of coffee or tea.

What better spot could there be to relax and admire your surroundings!
