The Flower Fields are now closed, we will reopen March 1 to May 14, 2023


We’re looking forward to seeing you at the fields! With our world famous 50 acres of ranunculus there’s also a number of opportunities to eat, learn, relax, and play. Come join us for our Wagon rides, stroll through the artist gardens, or visit the bird aviaries.  Before arrival – learn about everything you can do during your visit to The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch®!

U-Pick Blueberries


Enjoy our seasonal 2-acre U-Pick blueberry patch! Spring weather can be unpredictable in Carlsbad, and our blueberry patch is not always available for picking.

Upon arrival to The Flower Fields, we will have signage sharing with our visitors if picking is available! If no signage is out, the blueberries are not available for picking that day.

Demonstration Garden


The Flower Fields are lucky to have the Master Gardeners of San Diego County create our beautiful Demonstration Garden.  This garden features 9 vignettes appropriate for small spaces or for those looking for earth friendly practices.  There are native plants, proteas, meadow grasses and a pollinator bed all showcasing sustainability.   The Master Gardeners also produce a small backyard orchard and vegetable bed along with a fun and whimsical miniature display.
