The Sims 4 Gardening Collection Guide

Collecting Plants in The Sims 4

Combine the collecting of plants with the Gardening Skill. Without it you will not complete the collection of course. There are more ways to collect Flowers, Herbs, Fruits and Vegetables in The Sims 4. You can obtain them by searching, grafting or simply buy them. Some plants are very rare and it will take a lot of time to get them.

Some plants are usable with the Herbalism Skill to create potions. (You will need The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat)

Finding Plants in The Sims Neighborhood to start Gardening

You can find plants all over the neighborhoods in The Sims 4. You will have to look in every different neighborhood like Willow Creek and Oasis Springs to get every plant you can obtain by searching. There are also Public Garden to search in. You will find most of the plants there.

Get Flowers, Herbs, Fruits and Vegetables from Seed Packets

To purchase Starter seed packets you need a planter box or a computer. There are 4 different Starter Seed packets available.

  • Starter Flowers Seed packet: Blue Bells, Chrysanthemum, Daisy
  • Starter Herbs Seed packet: Basil, Parsley
  • Starter Fruits Seed packet: Apple, Grapes, Plantain
  • Starter Vegetables Seed packet: Carrot, Mushroom, Spinach

Get new Plants with Grafting

When your Sims reach level 7 in the Gardening Skill they can start grafting plants. All you do is take a cutting from one plant and graft it with another plant. You can create new plants this way. You can find every combination of grafting in the table below.

  1. Have any of you not had the newest three plants from Get to Work show up in your Collections section in inventory? The three of them aren’t showing up for me.

    1. I think I have. I have all the above fruit and vegetables,but there is one fruit or vegetable that shows that missing under my collection for gardening. I have not found it and it is not on the above list. I have looked everywhere and I have no idea where this fruit is or what expansion pack it is from. It is under the first column forth down it looks like it is a circle shaped fruit or vegetable and it is uncommon. If any of you know where I can find this or what it is I would appreciate the help.

  2. Why don’t the four flowers show up on the collection guide in the game for the “Get to Work” expansion?

  3. I’ve found all types of the plant.
    The only two plants that i cannot plant them are Glow Orb and Fang Flower.
    There always notice that i need more space to plant them,so I tried to plant them in more open space, but it still not work…….. (T^T)

    How to do? Please help me…..

    1. You find it behind where the Landgraab family lived/lives. By the cave there are two plants that give you one flower each
