Once you have the Garden built, you’ll need to plant different types of vegetables in the plots of land inside. You can then either:

  • Water the plants whenever the water drop icon appears
  • Make the plants grow faster by playing a music minigame

Once the vegetables are harvested, you can either feed them directly to animals and spirits, or use them as ingredients for meals cooked in the Kitchen.

Unlocking the Garden

The Garden is automatically unlocked early in the game after getting the Beginner Blueprint Station. The spirit that will introduce it to you will be Summer. Here’s a quick guide on how to recruit her:

Step 1: Go to Hummingberg and unlock Stella’s double jump ability in the shrine in the middle of the island.

Step 2: Head right and use double jump to reach the broken ladder. Then keep heading right until you find a ladder and a spirit sitting by a bench in front of the sea.

Once Summer is on the ship, her first request will be “Nature Class” where she will ask you to build the Garden for her.

How To Build the Garden

Material Where/How to Get
10 Maple Logs

  • Greenhalten Bay (X: -8, Y: 75)

After you build the Garden, Summer will go inside and teach you the basics of using it. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Enter the Garden and interact with any of the three plots.

Step 2: Once your inventory opens, pick any of the vegetable seeds that are available to be planted, and confirm. You can plant up to three seeds at the Garden.

Step 3: Once they’re planted, water the plants whenever the water drop icon appears. Then harvest the vegetables when they’re ready, and repeat the process all over again.

The Garden also functions similarly to the Field. The main difference is that the vegetables you grow from the Garden can be fed directly to animals and some Spirits, in addition to being cooked in the Kitchen.

How To Play “Plantasia Fantastica”

After the “Nature Class” request, Summer will then give you the “Jiving Chives” request, where she will teach you how to play the song “Plantasia Fantastica.”

Here’s how to play the song:

Step 1: Stand on any of the plants and hold the interact button.

Step 2: Once Stella starts playing guitar, notes will start appearing at the top. Hit the correct notes once they pass through the middle line.

Step 3: The longer you play the song, the faster the plants will grow.

You can play this song at any time whenever there are plants in the Garden. However, you can only grow each plant faster one at a time.
