Flower U-Pick, where you get choose your flowers, is now taking bookings for those who are looking to create their own arrangements or who are looking for a fun evening out with friends. Located a short drive from Brandon, the farm offers 40 different types of flowering, greenery, and grasses to cut from. The cost is $35 to fill a vase (includes vase), $60 to fill a pail (includes pail) or $5.00 visit, no flowers. All necessary tools are provided.
This is her first year with the u-pick concept for owner Hazel Thorne, a trained florist who also does wedding work. She also does wholesale growing of bedding plants for the spring market, and being that she already had the greenhouses and the land she wanted to extend her season by trying a u-pick garden. The U Pick garden kicked off just recently for the season and Hazel plans to be open till it freezes, so hoping until at least September long.
As she also works outside of the home, the service is currently available by booking a time. She does evening appointments every day, and appointments during the day and evening on weekends. You can call or 204-573-1268 to book a time.
