Are you looking to unleash your inner botanist and immerse yourself in a world of vibrant blooms and fragrant petals? Whether you’re a seasoned flower enthusiast or just looking for a fun and relaxing outdoor activity, flower picking in Northern Virginia offers a unique and rewarding experience. Let’s explore some of the best locations in the area where you can pick your own flowers and create stunning bouquets to brighten up your home.

Discover the Charm of Hope Flower Farm & Winery

Tucked away in the scenic landscapes of Waterford, just a stone’s throw from Dulles Airport, lies the enchanting Hope Flower Farm & Winery. This idyllic farm offers an exquisite array of pick-your-own bouquets from July through October (or the first frost of the season), and visitors are invited to stroll through vibrant fields, hand-selecting their favorite flowers to create personalized arrangements that capture the essence of the season.

Flowers are first-come, first-serve while supplies last, and pricing depends on the bouquet. A mixed bunch with 15 stems starts at $35. Other flowers might be more expensive with fewer flowers. It’s a good idea to check out the Hope Flower Farm website and plan accordingly before you head out to pick your own bouquet!

Support Local at Seven Oaks Lavender Farm

Seven Oaks Lavender Farm is a small family-owned and operated farm just outside Washington DC. Lavender season typically runs May 31 through mid-July at Seven Oaks, and they welcome visitors daily to pick their own flowers. While they primarily have lavender, you might encounter some other flowers. Lavender stems are 15 cents each, but their other flowers might range from 50 cents and upwards. Tickets are required, so be sure to book in advance, if possible. 

Bloom With Fields of Flowers

Fields of Flowers, located in Purcellville, has nearly 20 different types of flowers, many of which vary throughout the season. Field of Flowers emphasizes that each flower has its own blooming season, so you’ll want to plan based on the type of flower you want during certain parts of the spring and summer. 

Fields of Flowers typically takes a break between May and June while they wait for their summer flowers to bloom. Once they reopen in June, they stay open through October. Check out their website so you can plan your visit around your favorite flower’s blooming times.
