PYO flowers

“We’d like to thank everyone who visited the flower patch this year – despite the rainy start the patch produced a lovely array of colour – and many pretty posies were picked and enjoyed! 


It’s been lovely to meet so many people and we’ll be back in the same place next year with more lovely blooms from the end of July…… looking forward to it already!”

Country Pumpkins patch

We will be back in 2024 for more flower picking fun! 

Mixed Annuals – Comprising 19 different varieties, these proved a huge hit with visitors last year for our PYO cutting flower events, and they really do make the prettiest posies!  They include: Zinnia, Marigold, African Marigold, Malope, Cornflower, Cosmos, Mallow, Annual Centaurea, China Aster, Annual Baby’s Breath etc… They’ll last 7 days in fresh water and faded blooms are constantly replaced by new opening buds!


Sunflowers - PYO Sunflowers are back too! We will be adding new varieties of pollen-free Sunflowers for cutting, alongside a vast block of traditional ‘Giants’ for some fun photo opportunities!

Flowers are now closed, but we will be open in October for Pumpkin Picking!

See you in 2024 for more flower picking.

"Why not make a very personal gift to someone special – a personally picked posy of flowers, which we can gift wrap for you."

You’ll find us at the Country Pumpkins pumpkin patch at:


Gilbert’s Farm, Lilly Hall Lane, Little Marcle – HR8 2LD.
