- Setting Up a Garden Players can purchase a garden patch from one of the following vendor NPCs, which can then be placed on the estate grounds.
Mist (X:10, Y:11) - Housing Merchant Lavender Beds (X:11, Y:8) - Housing Merchant The Goblet (X:11, Y:9) - Housing Merchant
- Players may also purchase garden patches from junkmonger vendors placed on their estate grounds.
The size of an estate will determine the number of garden patches it can contain. Cottages, houses, and mansions can hold one, two, and three garden patches respectively.
There are three types of garden patches, each allowing for a different number of garden beds.
Round Garden Patch - four garden beds Oblong Garden Patch - six garden beds. Deluxe Garden Patch - eight garden beds.
- Seeds To begin gardening, players will first need to obtain seeds. Seeds can be gathered by botanists, and will occasionally appear at certain locations where their plants yield crops.
Example: La Noscean orange seeds can be obtained from the same trees as la noscean oranges.
- Certain seeds may prove difficult to obtain.
- Soil Players will also need to prepare soil for their gardens, which can be obtained by miners. The type of soil will depend on the region where it was gathered.
- Soil type and grade affects yield quality and quantity, and the likelihood of intercrossing.
- Planting Seeds With a garden bed selected, choose a bag of seeds and your desired soil to begin planting.
- Raising Crops Plant growth can be promoted through constant tending and the use of fertilizer. The rate of growth and amount of produce yielded varies between plants.
Fertilize Crop Enrich soil and accelerate growth.
- Can only be applied to a plant once per hour (Earth time).
Tend Crop Tend and water plants. Neglected plants will eventually wither.
Remove Crop Remove a plant from its bed before it yields crops.
- Harvesting Crops When plants have fully grown, players can harvest their crops to obtain produce. Plants may yield high quality produce depending on how they were cultivated.
- Certain items can only be obtained through gardening.
- Intercrossing In the event that different plant species were growing side by side, they may also render up new kinds of seeds. This process can be repeated with intercrossed plants, and may give rise to heretofore unseen specimens.
The crossbred results might be choosing from a pool of possible seeds, rather than solely limited to one outcome.
- E.G. Apricot crossed with Pixie Plum produced both Royal Kukuru and Pineapple seeds.
