Once you have two or more hearts of friendship with Leah, she will send you the Flower Bomb crafting recipe in the mail. (If you are married to her, she will teach you the recipe in an event in the farmhouse instead.) You can craft a Flower Bomb with 4 Clay and 1 Mudstone.
For your convenience, Clint will now sell a limited supply of Mudstone each day. If you have befriended Kent, he will now send you Flower Bombs in the mail instead of regular Bombs.
You can load any wild or flower seeds, including custom flower seeds, into a Flower Bomb the same way you would load Bait onto a fishing rod. You can unload seeds that way too. Empty Flower Bombs can stack in your inventory, but loaded Flower Bombs cannot.
You can place a Flower Bomb directly in the world on any dirt or grass. To pick it up again, strike it with a tool. You can also load empty Flower Bombs into a Slingshot and fire them. If they land on or near dirt or grass, they will stick in that area.
By default, all Flower Bombs placed in the world will germinate overnight. If so configured, they will not germinate until the next rainy or snowy day (or if in the range of a sprinkler). Any Flower Bomb can also be germinated immediately by watering it ten times.
When a Flower Bomb germinates that held in-season flower seeds, the growth will consist mainly of that flower, with some seasonal wildflowers and weeds at the edges. If it held in-season wild seeds, the growth will consist mainly of seasonal wildflowers with weeds at the edges. Otherwise, the growth will consist entirely of weeds. (In winter, weeds are replaced with crystals.)
If you have installed Generic Mod Config Menu, you can access this mod's configuration by clicking the cogwheel button at the lower left corner of the Stardew Valley title screen and then choosing "Flower Bombs".
Otherwise, you can edit this mod's
config.jsonfile. It will be created in the mod's main folder (
Mods/FlowerBombs) the first time you run the game with the mod installed. These options are available:
WaterToGerminate: Set this to

KentGifts: Set this to
