11 Fresh Flower Farms In The Okanagan Valley


The Okanagan Valley is home to some of the best flower farms in Canada! Here are 11 wonderful flower farms in the Okanagan Valley that offer fresh, locally-grown flowers and ornamental plants.

Okanagan-grown fresh flowers are generally in-season from May to October. Most flower farms in the Okanagan are in the northern half of the valley (roughly centered around the town of Armstrong), due to the extreme summer heat in the southern end of the valley. Note that most of these flower farms are private studios, and are not open to the public for viewing or farm visits (or are open by appointment only).
