Get Flower Bags From Timmy
You can purchase flower seeds at Nook's Cranny for 240 bells. The variety of seeds you can get is limited so you'll need to cross-pollinate in order to get new flowers!Learn More About What You Can Buy At Nook's Cranny
Each Island Has Different Buyable Flower Seeds
Depending on the island you live on, the product line-up for the flower seeds will differ. Visit other players' islands in order to get different flower seeds.Click Here To Learn How To Use Airport & Visit Other Island
Use Mystery Island Tour To Get Flowers
You can visit other islands and get more flowers by going on Mystery Island Tours. Make sure you bring a Shovel with you.Learn More About Mystery Island Tour From Here
Plant Flower Bag (Seed)
Find an open space and plant your seeds. You don't need any tools to plant flowers. The flower will grow in the tile you are currently standing on.
Use Watering Can To Flowers
You can use the Watering Can to water your flowers. However, this does not significantly change the speed at which flowers grow! Perhaps watering a plant has something to do with cross pollination - we will provide updates once we've established a pattern.
No Need To Water On Rainy Days
When it's raining, all the flowers will automatically be watered. You don't need to use the watering can on these days.
Flowers Bloom In Approx. 4 Days
Flowers bloom in approximately 4 days. Wait patiently until your flowers bloom.
Don't Run Over Flowers
When you run over a flower, its petals will scatter and fall on the ground. Use fences to prevent other players from running over them.
How To Move Flowers
You Need A Shovel
In order to change the position of a flower, you have to uproot the whole flower with a shovel. This way, you can get a flower plant. If you press "Y" on the flower, you will only pick the flower and the root will be left behind.Learn How To Make A Shovel From Here
