IF YOU ARE A FLORIST, FLORAL DESIGNER, WHOLESALER, OR FLOWER ENTHUSIAST THIS IS JUST RIGHT FOR YOU :-)
Come and spend some quality, fun time with family or friends at Kumeu Flower Farm. If you are thinking “YES” then 'U-PICK FLOWERS' is your perfect solution.
Picking your own flowers is a great option for individuals who want to hand pick their blooms to practice flower arranging at home, or florists who need larger volumes of flowers for weddings or other big events.
REGISTER BELOW OR FOR GROUP BOOKINGS, CHOOSE YOUR OWN HOURS
Click on the Register Link below to choose the prebooked dates. If you cant make our preset times below we can set up seperate bookings for groups of no less than 8 people (One bucket per person minimum entry).
Call us on 09 4127606 or make an Inquiry here.
You’ll be given a guided tour of the Greenhouse and shown the areas you are able to pick from, you’ll learn about what’s in bloom and then you'll be left to fill your bucket as full as you like with stems and foliage, but we do ask you not to overfill or stuff the flowers too tight as you will damage them and they wont last as long. And don't forget to bring your own bucket to take the flowers away in.
U-Pick Flowers is OPEN SPRING, SUMMER & AUTUMN (SEPT- MAY) or as long as the flowers are available (check our Facebook or Instagram page for updates!).
Picking is in the mornings/evenings, since flowers picked in the heat of the day wilt quickly and don't last as long.
Please arrive on time to your session otherwise you will miss out on your orientation and have to chose another time.
