After taking most of 2020 season off, Flower Fields set to bloom again - The San Diego Union-Tribune
In 2019, the attraction drew nearly 300,000.The long sloping hillside, which stretches for one mile along Armada Drive from Cannon Road south to Palomar Airport Road, has been home to flowering plants since 1923, when Paul Ecke Sr. moved his family’s poinsettia-growing operation south from Los Angeles.When the Eckes transitioned from cut poinsettia flowers to potted poinsettia plants and moved their growing operations inside greenhouses, the Carlsbad fields were leased in 1965 to another local grower, Edwin Frazee. His family began farming ranunculus flowers in the 1930s and over time developed them into hardier plants with stronger stems and bigger flowers with more petals. When Frazee retired in 1993, the Eckes brought in a new grower, Mellano & Co., which has farmed the property ever since.

To ensure multiple acres of flowers are always in bloom during the spring season, the fields are planted in sequence, four to five weeks apart, starting with the fields farthest north in early September. Those northern fields are just now coming into bloom. By Mother’s Day, the southernmost acres will be awash in color. Usually each spring, the Flower Fields hosts a busy calendar of events with multiple classes, festivals, art fairs and concerts. Many of those won’t be held this year, and all of the school field trips — which usually bring 7,000 children to the property — have been canceled.Almost all of the regular points of interest will be open to visitors, though some may be monitored to avoid overcrowding. Attractions include the Paul Ecke historic poinsettia display, the sweet pea maze, greenhouses, a playground and the gardens maintained by the San Diego County Master Gardeners. There are also plans for live outdoor music, though the auditorium-style seating has been replaced this year with widely spaced benches to allow family groups to sit together but away from other guests.
This year, visitors will be able to visit a new pick-your-own blueberry patch, also located at the north end of the fields. Planted five years ago, the 1.5-acre patch opened for the first time last March. But when the fields closed, Clarke brought in a gleaning company to pick the blueberry crop and give the fruit away to the needy. There are five varieties of high-bush blueberries growing inside the patch, which is netted to keep out hungry birds. A basket is $5. Clarke said the patch should produce 20,000 pounds of berries this year.div class="enhance... May 1, 2020

Ever wonder where they get the gorgeous flowers bordering the paths at Disneyland? Landscape architect John Schoustra grows them for big landscape jobs, but he invites the public to view and/or buy some on Saturdays from April 4 through the end of June. Greenwood’s day lilies, irises, geraniums and other flowers used to be grown in the ground, organized by color. Now they’re grown in pots. “So the gophers and the weeds can’t get them,” says Schoustra, who’s proud to sell the only scented lilacs that will bloom in Southern California.Info: 8000 Balcom Canyon Road, Somis, Calif.; greenwoodgarden.comOtto & Sons Nursery
