Where to pick sunflowers and other pretty flowers in Tampa Bay

The spring means u-pick sunflowers and flowers are back in Tampa Bay. The giant beauties are in full bloom in flower fields across Tampa Bay along with other beauties like zinnias and wildflowers. This is one of our favorite things to do with the kids in Tampa Bay!

There are usually other u-pick opportunities too, depending on the farm, so plan to spend a couple of hours there and make some space for some yummy farm-fresh veggies!

A few pro tips when picking your own flowers from flower fields in Tampa Bay:

  • Check with each farm before you go to make sure they will be open because anything can change, especially when it comes to weather.
  • Keep in mind, that it does cost money to pick flowers, so having extra cash on hand is always ideal as some farms are cash-only.
  • Bring your own cutters and a vase to fill with water and a box to keep the vase steady for the drive home. No one wants to go home with wilted flowers.
  • Since it’s Florida, pack sunscreen, hats, and water because it can get hot in the fields. Bug spray and closed-toed shoes like tennis shoes are always a good idea.
  • Pack some wet wipes to clean up after your day on the farm and snacks for the car ride home to prevent hangry child syndrome.

*Check with each farm’s Facebook page for up-to-the-minute updates on flower availability and other farm news. Things can change pretty quickly!
