As the fruit season winds down on this family-run pick-your-own farm, turn your attention to its fields of sunny blooms instead. There are three sunflower fields dotted across its whopping 155 acres and the £4 entry is taken off your ‘pay and weigh’ bill at the end. Wanna mix things up? Have a look at the PYO dahlia fields too.
Winterdown Rd, Esher, Surrey, KT10 8LS. Esher rail then 458 bus. Check www.garsons.co.uk.
Nothing says summer quite like the noble sunflower. Get neck-deep in heliotropic heaven at these golden fields full of custard-yellow blooms, which are at their peak from August to September.
Just a stone’s throw from the city, these farms let you do the picking, so you can create your own still life at home. Remember, always check ahead to make sure the crops are fresh before you visit.
