IF YOU ARE A FLOWER ENTHUSIAST THIS IS JUST RIGHT FOR YOU :-)
Come and spend some quality, fun time with family or friends at Kumeu Flower Farm picking your own flowers. If you are thinking “YES” then 'U-PICK FLOWERS' is your perfect solution. BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL PLEASE REGISTER AND BOOK BELOW.
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.
Picking is in the mornings or evenings, since flowers picked in the heat of the day wilt quickly and don't last as long.
REGISTER BELOW OR FOR GROUP BOOKINGS PLEASE CONTACT US

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 to a maximum of 40 stems of flowers and/or foliage. Don't forget to bring your own secateurs to pick your flowers and your own bucket to take the flowers away in.
Please arrive on time to your session otherwise you will miss out on your orientation and have to chose another time.
