Right, but they are slightly different. 1 refers to all the flowers in
the garden; 2 doesn't specify whether it's all the flowers or just
some of them.

2. She is watering flowers in the garden.
They are both okay, but have slightly different meanings.

She is watering <all of> the flowers in the garden.
She is watering <some of the> flowers in the garden.

Sentence 2 could also allow the possibility that she in the garden but
is watering flowers over the fence.

Most flowers are too small to require felling.
Secateurs will do the job.
