Flower Garden, from Snappy Touch, is a great virtual flower growing app that lets you plant, grow, and send flowers. And it's free for Mother's Day!
When you start Flower Garden, you start out with a few different flowers seed packets you can plant. Some are easy to grow -- they can take any amount of water and don't need much tending. Others need a specific amount of water, dry out quickly, and need more frequent tending. As you successfully grow flowers, you will unlock other flowers seed packets you can grow. In addition, you can use in-app purchasing to grab other seed types, new gardens, and fertilizer to speed your flowers growing.
There's a free bonus set of flower seeds available that includes a special 148Apps flower. Guess which one is my favorite?
Flower Garden works great on the iPhone and looks even better on the iPad. Huge, wonderful flowers fill the screen. Very fun to interact with (try rotating the flower pots). Once you have grown your flowers you can cut them and create bouquets with a single or multiple kinds of flowers. Once you have a bouquet, you can add a message and send it either by email or via Facebook.
Here's a short video from the developer that gives you a walk through of Flower Garden.
