Bud levels make up 26.06% of all levels, with 1011 total appearances out of the 3880 levels.
To pass this level type, the player has to bloom all the big buds in the garden. In order to do this, the player has to link flowers in the same colors with the big buds or bloom flowers next to them.
Bud levels are usually somewhat harder than other levels. The levels are usually easier if the bud count is low and there are bigger flowers, but harder if there are very small flowers, high bud count and a lot of blockers.
