Gardening: a Prelude

I've done a little bit of gardening, but not much. Currently, I'm trying to get to Legendary Artisan; and spending hours upon hours of running around trying to find the constantly-farmed stone blocks and sandstone nodes is taking away from my time to actually play the game.

So I googled 'wizard101 gardening tips'.

Here are my notes from my searching (some of which I already knew):

- with a castle you can plant straight in the ground, but you have to buy pots for your dorm (or indoors if some other housing). Purchasing housing for this reason is cost-effective in the long run if you're going to do serious gardening.

- higher level gardening spells allow for area effect casting. You can grow more things and tend them in clusters this way. Otherwise, you will use all your energy points up trying to cast individual spells.

- make your plots so that there is a center plant and four around it (at least at lower gardening levels). Make sure these plants like each other (best that they are the same kind of plant, so they grow at the same rate!).

- different plants harvest different items, so think about what you want from your plants (look below to see different types).

- don't plant more than you can care for, otherwise you're just wasting your seeds. Plan on your plants needing three or four different spells cast on them, and how much energy will be required for that.

- don't forget your plants. Advice offered is checking on them twice a day (morning, evening). Just like in real life, eh?

- if you have plants that don't like each other, make sure they are planted far enough away from each other.

- if you are training up pets, go light on your gardening (or wait entirely until you are done with your pet training). The energy points are used for both.

- consider what kinds of plants you want before going and purchasing. I'd first go through all the seeds you earned through play, regardless of what they give you. Then when you are stuck, look to get those seeds you are capable of growing and that meet your needs.

- finally, remember to exit the gardening menu if you want to interact with your plants to harvest them.


Short list of various plants and their uses:

Gold
Pink Dandelions - harvest black pearls (and sell them!)
Stinkweed

Cool Treasure Cards
Stinkweed - Poison, Smokescreen
Silver Trumpet Vine - Earthquake, Pierce, Disarm
Honey Sickle - blade cards

Pet Snacks
Cornbread Fruit Bush - golden wheat bread
Prickly Bear Cactus - sun fruit, crab apple

Crafting Reagents
Pink Dandelions - as noted above, black pearls, plus blood moss, lava lilies, springs, ancient scrolls
Prickly Bear Cactus - sunstones

EDIT: I'm reposting from a wiz101 forum member (lukin) who just consolidated all the purchasable seeds and what they give. Wow. Talk about comprehensive! (not sorted into the above categories).
