Like I said, been there and suggested that and in more detail.
And since bees pollinate flowers, your suggestion that more flowers can't grow near hives makes no sense, even in MC. It would make more sense for more flowers to grow near hives, as long as there was space for them.
You misread what I said, I meant that flowers ONLY have a chance to spread when within that range of a hive, anyway why are you so keen on showing me up? I honestly don't like your idea, I agree with the spawning requirements but other than that it's too complex, it'd fit better as a mod. As where my suggestion keeps everything fairly simple and preserves the Vanilla feel to the game.
