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.

Featured article queueEdit

The articles listed here are set to be featured in upcoming months. They are added to this list in the order that they were voted upon by the community.

Selecting new Featured ArticlesEdit


Any user can nominate an article for Featured Article, as long as the article wasn't already featured. Users should copy and paste the following under "Current nominations" below in order to nominate an article:

{{subst:FA Nomination
|name     = 
|reason   = 
|sig      = ~~~~
|time     = {{subst:#time: U |now}}

Name is the name of the article being nominated, and reason is a brief explanation of why the article should be featured. Do not change the text for sig or time.


Any user can vote for as many nominated Featured Articles as they wish. All votes need to be signed (using four tildes: ~~~~) in order to be counted, and each user may only vote for each article one time. All votes will last for two weeks. If a nomination has more support votes than oppose votes after voting, it will be placed in the Featured Article queue. Articles will be featured in the order they appear in the queue, and order in the queue will be the order of passage, unless the queue is re-arranged due to a game release or other special event.
