A Sim tending to a garden

Gardening in The Sims 4 is a game mechanic and skill, allowing Sims to grow plants that can be sold or used in various recipes.

Sims can plant plants on their lot, in bare earth or in flower pots. Sims need to tend plants regularly to keep them alive and healthy. Plants that are well-tended and remain healthy eventually increase in quality. As plant quality increases, the needs of the plant increase; higher-quality plants may need to be weeded or sprayed for bugs to keep them healthy. Plants produce harvestables which can be sold, eaten, or used in cooking or herbal recipes. The quality of the harvestable depends on the quality of the plant. Higher-quality harvestables can be re-planted, and the plant that grows from the harvestable will start at that higher level.

As Sims develop their gardening skill, they obtain new abilities, such as the ability to talk to plants, fertilize gardens, and graft plants together. More advanced gardeners can graft cuttings of multiple plants onto a single plant, allowing that plant to produce multiple types of harvestables at the same time; some rare harvestables can only be obtained by grafting certain plants together.

The Sims 4 base game features 33 different types of plants that can be collected and grown; other content packs increase the total number of available plants to 50.
