Gardening is one of the many features introduced during the Ratboy's Nightmare Update. It is a small feature that players can participate in, engaging in the cultivation and harvesting of up to 8 different crops and plants located in the Frontier as of the Ratboy's Nightmare Update (v1.2a).
Gardening can also be seen in The Nightmare, a realm that players can explore in the Ratboy's Nightmare Update. It is predominantly featured in The Plant Room, an area of The Nightmare where players may check on their gardening progress by viewing the gardening plots presented there. However, these plots cannot be used by the players and only act as a showcase of the 8 available plants in the game. These plots are also quite different from the ones in the Frontier, being raised up from the ground and containing only one bed.
Seeds are collectibles that can be bought from Mr. Sims, a seed vendor in the open market of Topple Hill. They can also be bought from Green Golem, a traveling vendor found in The Nightmare and sometimes in the Frontier. Some seeds may also be acquired as monster drops in The Nightmare. Seeds can be planted in plots of land each containing 4 beds. There are 5 plots and 20 beds in total, one plot in Topple Hill, in the market (very close to Mr. Sims), one plot in The Town of Right and Wrong, two plots in Farm Fortress, and one plot in the Abandoned Orchard. To unlock one of plots of land in Farm Fortress, the player must complete the Farm Fortress Defense Quest.
There are three different tiers of seeds, each representing one of the three slots in which they appear in Sims' Seed Supply:
- Tier 1 - Fairly inexpensive, and grows plants that could previously only be obtained before the initial release of the Ratboy's Nightmare Update. Beet'zos and Giant's Corns are in this tier.
- Tier 2 - Moderately-priced plants that will take a considerable amount of time to grow, turning out higher yields than the first tier. Fantastic Sunflowers and Nightmare Plants are in this tier.
- Tier 3 - Very expensive, and grow plants that are very rare and takes anywhere between a few hours and several real-life days to grow. These sometimes yield crops that will sell for a total value considerably more than the cost of the seeds. Divine Grapes, Noble Blue Flowers, and Gift Trees are in this tier.
