How to get Cherry Blossom Petals in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Using the Net, you can get these petals the same way you get the Maple Leaf. Just wait for their season to start, grab your net and head to the area of the trees. During the start of the spring season, hardwood trees on your island will be converted into Cherry Blossom trees.
Only the non-fruit trees will convert into cherry blossom trees during their season.
The Cherry blossoms will fall from these trees; you can identify them by looking for pink petals. Try to get as many petals as possible; you will need many of them in crafting. Catching them during the day is better as the chances get a bit lower at night.
If you want the season to last a little longer and get permanent cherry blossom trees in ACNH, you can time travel and stay in the cherry blossom blooming season.
After collecting Cherry-Blossom petals, you can sell each for 200 bells. You can even sell items crafted using these petals to make a lot of Bells.
