Flower farm?

Last night we had a sudden need for alot of Dandelion Yellow but had virtually no flowers. We eventually just transmuted Cactus Green a bunch of times but given that way is dreadfully inefficient I was wondering if anyone had any ideas if it would be possible to set up a way to farm flowers?

I have my flower farm setup in much the same way as MFR farms. 5x5 area of grass with a MFR harvester (+2 upgrade), but with a dispenser filled with bonemeal facing up where the planter would normally be.

I use a PRC as a timer and "AND" gate set at about 20 seconds with 2 x AE level emitters to keep 1024 of both yellow and red flowers in stock. Bonus output of lots of seeds from the tall grass.

Interesting. I might try the same myself. Would it be too much of an imposition to ask for a pic of your setup for reference?

Here's a quick cutaway view I just mocked up. Pic 1 shows the dispenser facing upward. Pic 2 the system working. Hope this helps.

Just as a follow-up, how is the PRC configured? Try as I might I can't get my head around it. :(

Here is the setup that I used. It's pretty ugly logic as I slapped it together in a hurry.

Page 1 Square Wave with 255 input (I think this is around 20secs) -> Var1

Page 2 One Shot of Var1 (Pulse Former) -> Var2

Page 3 Nand of the two Level Emitters -> Var3

Page 4 And Var2, Var3 -> output to dispenser.
