In Sims 4, there are many different activities your Sims can partake in. There's swimming, painting, singing, and even gardening. Gardening can be participated in as a simple hobby, but it can also become a lucrative career for your Sim. But how do you get started? By planting some seeds, of course!
How to Plant Seeds for Gardening in Sims 4
Here's a step by step guide on how to plant seeds for your garden or farm.
Step One: Buy The Seeds
The first thing you want to do is navigate to your phone at the bottom user interface (UI) bar. Select it, then select the icon that looks like a home. Scroll down and select Purchase Gifts. Scroll down the menu or filter by gardening, then purchase the seeds you would like.
Step Two: Open The Seed Packet
The seeds will be delivered to your personal inventory (not the same as your Build/Buy inventory) in the bottom right of the screen. Click this icon (it looks like a storage box) and find your seeds. Click the seeds and select Open Seed Packet. The packet will divide the content into your inventory. You will see new fruits or plants in the inventory.
Step Three: Place the Seeds and Plant Them
Drag the items you want to plant to the exact area that you want them to grow (you can try some landscape painting for a more authentic look!). Then, click the plant and select Plant. Your Sim will go and plant them in the ground, leaving a mound behind.

Step Four: Water the Mounds
Keep your Sim nearby. Click the mound and select Water. Your Sim will water every dry plant mound that is nearby (save yourself time by planting everything first!). The plant will then be watered and does not need attending for a while.
Step Five: Enjoy Your Plants!
Now it is time to wait! Your Sim can go and do other things while they wait for the plants to grow. This is the beginning to a successful garden or farm. Good luck!
