This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I wanted to upload these items as a themed set...but I could not figure out how to do it. The set contains purely decorative "plastic" plants which can be found in Buy Mode>Decorative>Plants as well as "real" garden shrubs and flowers under Biuld Mode> Plants

Here are the details:
The October Planters rar contains 3 files:
The Friendly Gargoyles - 1054 polys; two recolourable parts;
Pedestal Planter Tall - 1249 polys; two recolourable parts;
Pedestal Planter Short - 1504 polys; two recolourable parts;
The single rar files:
Lavatera (it resembles Holyhock) - 1400 polys
Lupins - 1146 polys
Foxgloves - 914 polys
Garden Irises - 955 polys
Nasturtium - 960 polys

All of them can be found in Buy Mode>Decorative>Plants

Shrubs and Primroses contains:They are in Build Mode>Gardening
Garden Primroses - 1130 polys
Garden Primroses Half Tiles - 546 polys
The Rhododendron (or rather my version of a Rhodo) - 1153 polys
The shrub with a somewhat unusual name Leucotheo (I like its multicoloured leaves) - 989 polys
The good thing about "plastic" plants is that your sims do not have to water and trim them. There is a drawback, howerver: plastic plants cannot be seen in the neigbourhood view.
Programs used: SimPE MilkShape
UV Mapper Free

I have not made many recolours of the plants on purpose: so that you could have some fun editing the textures.
Please do not upload these items or the recolours you have made to pay sites.

Thank you for all you comments on my work.

Default Wonderful!
It's ridiculous how happy your flowers have made me. I'm going to make a garden so huge there will be no room for the house!

Yay!!! These are gorgeous! Making gardens will totally be worth the trouble now.

Thanks, your gardens are always amazing. I use your desert garden obsessively and now my grassy yard sims can enjoy beautiful plants as well.
