    Part 1. Introduction
    ==============
    Well here is my very first guide ever and it's on breeding flowers 
    in Animal Crossing: Wild World since I've gotten pretty good at it. 
    Anyhow the two main reasons to breed hybrid flowers are 1) to sell 
    the hybrids and make money and 2) to make your town look nicer. 
    In this guide I will list all the flower types and their prices to 
    sell them at Tom Nook's and how to get each type of flower. I will 
    also give you some ways to plant your flowers to get the most out of 
    your flower breeding. 
    
    ==============
    Part 1a. Growing Flowers
    ==============
    Every day 3-5 flowers will grow in your town. A few flowers are
    completely random and will only be one of the three basic colors.
    Sad to say there's no way to stop this. The rest are flowers that
    grew from parent flowers and will be either the color of one of the
    parent colors, or a hybrid color. You may not get a hybrid color 
    every single day but as long as you care for your flowers and keep
    only hybrid producing flowers touching you will get a hybrid sooner
    or later (Usually soon. :D) Also, Hybrids will appear in an empty
    spot directly next to one of the parent flowers that spawned it.
    The same applies to flowers that grew from parents but are just
    basic colors. The random flowers can appear anywhere in your town.
    
    Also The more flowers you have in your town increases your chances
    of breeding a flower greatly.
    
    ==============
    Part 1b. Caring for your flowers
    ==============
    Every day you should go through your town and water your "dying"
    flowers. (And also pick up and move any new flowers that appeared)
    These are the flowers that have turned brown and look wilted. They 
    only need to be watered once, but multiple times do not hurt. When
    watering try to make sure the water goes to about the middle of the
    flowers. If you unsure whether or not it got watered, just water it
    again but maybe do it from a different angle to be sure. Also note
    that watering does not increase your chances of making a hybrid but
    if you do not water your flowers when they wilt, they will die and
    disappear. Watering does not affect non-wilted flowers in any way.
    Also (again lol) If it is raining in your town, you do not need to
    water your flowers for that day. The rain counts as watering your 
    flowers.

    Part 3. Flower Breeding
    ==============
    
    In order to breed flowers, Two flowers of the same type
    must be touching, either horizontally, vertically, or
    diagonally.
    
    Horizontal	Vertical	Diagonal
    
    XXXXXXX  	XXXXXXX	XXXXXXX
    XXFFXXX	XXXFXXX	XXXFXXX
    XXXXXXX	XXXFXXX	XXXXFXX
    
    When breeding flowers the parent flowers have a chance
    of producing either 1)a normal flower that is the color
    of one of the parents or 2) a hybrid flower that is a 
    special color. This means you can breed a hybrid flower
    with another hybrid of the same type to get more hybrids.
    
    Example.
    A Red Rose and a Yellow Rose can produce either: 
    a Red Rose, A Yellow Rose or an Orange Rose.
    
    Whereas an Orange Rose and a Red rose can produce
    either: a Red Rose or another Orange Rose.
    
    also, An Orange Rose and a Pink Rose can produce
    either an Orange Rose or a Pink Rose.
    
    ==============
    Part 4. Optimal Flower Breeding
    ==============
    
    Here are some examples of how to plant your flowers so they 
    will have a better chance to breed a rare flower. when placing 
    flowers try to keep only flowers that have a chance of spawning 
    a hybrid touching. like let Red and Yellow Cosmos touch each
    other but try not to let Yellow and White cosmos touch each other.
    
    I would recommend going through your town and putting all your
    flowers like this making it so that only flowers that have
    a possibility of producing a hybrid are touching.
    
    Now you'll notice these plots all have a row of red then
    either a row of yellow or white then another row of red, 
    then a row of yellow or white again, with the Yellow and
    white colors alternating. And you'll also probably notice
    there are no rows of Red touching. Ill explain this later.
    
    For these grids R = Red version of flower, W = White,
    Y = Yellow, and B = Boundry of your garden.
    
    Basically you want to plant all your flowers like this,
    touching diagonally. Also make sure only the same breeds
    of flowers are touching.(Roses,Tulips etc.)

     Part 4b. Pansies
     *Notice, There are no White pansies in this plot

     B B B B B B B B B
    
    You'll probably want to do another plot of
    diagonally touching flowers just like those except
    using white pansies only.

    Planting your flowers like this will give you optimum results
    for getting most hybrids. Except for the hybrids you get from
    same color flower breeding, Like Red roses and Red roses, or 
    White pansies with White pansies.
    
    For the colors of flowers that produce hybrids with themselves,
    like most (but not all) red flowers I would recommend planting 
    them around your neighbours houses in the spots they randomly 
    plant flowers. This will keep them from planting random flowers
    and give you more chances to get hybrids.
    
    EXAMPLE
    
    F = Where you should put a Flower, H = Their house,
    O = The open spot where their door is.
    
    FHHHHF
    FHHHHF
    FHHHHF
    FHHHHF
    FFFOFF
    FFFFFF
    
    Remember to use only one type of flower per each house, (Red Roses
    only or Yellow Tulips only) The Flowers you would want to 
    surround your neighbours houses with are:
    
    Red Roses
    White Roses
    
    Red Tulips
    Yellow Tulips
    
    Red Cosmos
    
    Red Pansies
    White Pansies

    Part 5.Frequently Asked Questions
    ==============
    Q: I have found a flower not listed in your guide, Its called a "Sun Cosmos"
    A: A Sun Cosmos Is what the Yellow Cosmos are actually called in the game.
    
    Q: Ive planted my flowers but Im not getting in hybrids why?
    A: A, either you waited one day or B, You waited at least a week and still got
    no Hybrids. As I said before, It can take many days to get a hybrid so have
    patience. If you have waited at least a week, Then you must have flowers
    touching that can't possibly breed hybrids  So check your gardens for 
    different species flowers touching and also for colors touching that dont breed.
    
    Q: Do Jacobs ladded or Dandylions count as weeds?
    A: No I do not believe so.
