For the ultimate get-away-from-it-all day trip, you'll be hard-pushed to find anything much prettier and more peaceful than Blooming Green. This flower farm in Maidstone is with in easy reach from central London and offers nature-hungry city-dwellers a chance to kick back in an acre of beautiful, flower-filled farmland. Even better, it's pick-your-own, so you can take a bucket-full of the countryside home with you at the end of the day.
Blooming Green is located on Loddington Lane, Linton, Maidstone, ME17 4AG. It's only open for pick-your-own visitors on certain days (usually in June and July), so make sure to check the website before paying a visit.
