The lease can actually make different provisions regarding providing notice; generally a one year lease requires a 30 or 60 day notice, unless it is an end of express lease term in which case the lease ends on the stated date. Some of the end of express lease terms actually have a notification requirement, stating that the parties must express in writing their intent to terminate the lease, otherwise it will auto renew for the same time period (ie one year).
So there is really no standard lease regarding this, as each landlord uses their own lease and can draft many of the provisions to their preference unless precluded by statute. The statute does not prevent this and those statutes are here:
As for the flowers, so long as the property is restored to the condition it was in, the landlord cannot claim damages for the tenant removing personal property. However, the landlord can bring a claim if the tenant did not have permission to plant the flowers, and the removal causes an eye sore, because the tenant is not supposed to affect the landscape without express permission from the landlord.
