Roses

Are roses a renewable resource? Do more grow randomly or can I farm them?

You can use bone meal on a grass block to grow long grass and occasionally red and yellow flowers will grow doing this.

Is this the only way to grow more?

I believe they can grow randomly throughout your world yes, but using bone meal is the easiest and fastest way to collect them.

Thanks. My girlfriend will be delighted to hear that as we weren't sure if they were renewable.

Thanks for the answer. Looks like I'll be making a mob cringed before too long to get more bones.

It is possible to build a flower and seed "farm" using water to auto-collect.

A friend built one in my world. It is based on the fact that you can super-feed grass at night from below to mass produce the precious flora.

They are not renewable naturally. They spawn with the initial world generation and with bonemeal only.

I have to say in my experience this isn't true, I farmed roses until there weren't anymore, went back a few weeks later in game time and found some more in places that were previously barren.

You can make a small structure say 7x7 and 2 high (completely dark) and start through down bonemeal and you'll get loads of flowers and seeds. Just a small little trick to help you get your items faster.
