Flowers grow only on grass and dirt paths, and unlike trees, they do not need free space around them to grow.
You can plant them in front of your house, or your neighbors' houses, or you can create a garden of your own!
Flowers cannot grow on the beach. They'll need to be on grass or dirt for it to fully-bloom.
However, you can move flowers to the sand. You can do this for decoration, or if you want to stop flowers from breeding.
Stand on the space where you want to plant, and open up your inventory to select the flower seed.
Select Plant 1 and the flower will be planted at your foot. You can also use your shovel to dig up a spot where you want to plant the flower.

Flowers bloom in 4 days, and you will be able to see its progress from its bud up to the flower bloom.
We also have concluded the watering the flowers does not make them grow faster. However, it does help when you are trying to cross-pollinate flowers.
You do not need to water plants on rainy days as they will automatically be watered for the day.
You will know if a flower has been watered if it creates a sparkle from time to time. It will sparkle more when more players water it.
Sometime when residents are outside, they will be doing activities which include watering flowers.
Running over a flower multiple times will destroy it, so be careful and only walk when you are on flowers.
However, destroyed flowers will grow back the next day, so you do not need to worry about losing them.
You can press the Y button to pick the flower, but this will only take the flower, and not the plant itself.
The plant will still be left for a new flower to grow in 2 days.
Use the shovel to pull up the flower including the stem and plant in the new spot.
