Dig into Gardening in The Sims 4

Gardening is a rewarding activity for Sims of all ages in The Sims 4. It’s a great way to:

  • Earn money: Sims can sell their harvested produce or crafted flower arrangements.
  • Develop skills: Gardening increases the Gardening skill, which unlocks new plantable items and improves the quality of harvested crops. Higher-quality crops sell for more money.
  • Boost mood: Gnomes, scarecrows, and birdhouses can improve the ambiance of a garden, making Sims happy when they tend to their plants.

Getting Started:

  1. Planting:

    • Purchase seeds from a computer, buy mode, or by collecting them from wild plants.
    • Place seeds in your inventory and then click on the desired planting location (ground, pot, planter box, etc.) and select “Plant https://aa40033.com/.”
  2. Watering:

    • Click on the plant to water it.
    • Tip: Watering plants regularly is crucial for their growth.
  3. Harvesting:

    • Click on a mature plant to harvest its produce.
    • Harvested items can be used for cooking, crafting, or selling.

Tips for Success:

  • Sunlight: Pay attention to the plant’s sun preference. Some plants thrive in full sun, while others prefer partial shade. Planting them in the wrong location will hinder their growth.
  • Seasons: If you have the Seasons expansion pack, be mindful of the seasons. Some plants are only available during specific seasons.
  • Fertilizer: Using fertilizer can improve the quality and yield of your crops.

Gardening Beyond the Basics:

  • Grafting: (Requires the Cottage Living expansion pack) Combine two different vegetables or fruits to create a unique hybrid plant!
  • Gnomes: Gnomes can protect your garden from unwanted visitors and improve the quality of your plants.
  • Collections: Complete collections of specific plants to earn unique rewards.

With a little care and attention, your Sims can become flourishing gardeners and enjoy the fruits (and vegetables!) of their labor.
