CARLSBAD–Southern California has recently experienced winter storms that have blanketed the area with consistent rain.
With less than a month from opening day, the team at The Flower Fields keeps a close eye on the growth and health of the crop…so far, they like what they see!
“We’re excited to see that the fields have been responding very well with the recent rains in our area. The gentle, steady water, combined with intermittent sunshine bodes very well for germination and the growth of our Ranunculus plants. The rains have encouraged an exceptionally strong and healthy plant this year. A strong healthy plant develops a magnificent show of flowers,” General Manager, Fred Clarke says. “Although the field has some time to mature, we are seeing pops of beautiful pink and yellow flowers making their earlier debut”.
The Flower Fields opens March 1 at the Carlsbad Ranch, 5704 Paseo Del Norte in Carlsbad.
The Flower Fields is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from March 1 to May 12. The Flower Fields provides two free parking areas, restroom facilities and accessibility for people with disabilities.
Admission is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors 60+, $9 for children 3–10 and free for children under the age of 2. Season passes and group tours are also available.
