Gardening for All Seasons!

This mod will make ALL your gardening plants grow, spawn harvestables, and evolve in ALL seasons!

Version 1.5 is compatible with The Sims 4 version 1.82.99

** I have split the mod into TWO different versions! The original "5am Edition" will cause plants to spawn fruit at 5am like in the default game.

** The NEW "11am Edition" will now spawn fruit at 11am instead of 5am! This will allow you to garden at the Science Lab without need of my Graveyard Shift mod!

** Note: The Cottage Living plant "Nightly Mushroom" was set to spawn at 11PM, I left it the way it was set, rather than change it to 11am.

Note: If you use the 11am edition with my Scientist Career Graveyard Shift mod OR the 5am edition WITHOUT Scientist Career Graveyard Shift, plants will not spawn at the Science Lab.
You should either use GFAS 5am WITH Scientist Career Graveyard Shift or GFAS 11am WITHOUT it.


History

I've always loved the gardening feature of The Sims 4. It always had so many uses! Food ingredients for cooking, flowers for romantic gifts, dates, and laundry, Dragon Fruit for money, Death Flowers to save your loved ones from Grim, Honey from the Bee Hive for food, money and protection from the elements... So many uses!

I was making so much money from Dragon Fruit, Normal quality was getting $250 a fruit, 8 per harvest, $2000 a plant every day!

Then Seasons came out.

They nerfed it down to only 4 per harvest, only 1 SEASON A YEAR! I hated it so much I removed Seasons. Until I created this mod that is. I created this mod at least a year ago but only used it myself, and have used it ever since.

It ONLY changes the seasons the plants grow in so they all grow all-year 'round. Nothing else. Weeds and insects have NOT been changed and will not infect the plants all-year. Plant evolution rates and growth rates are unchanged as well.

These are the plants that have been converted to grow in ALL seasons:

Base Game
Plantain, Tulip, Potato, Mushroom, Onion, Carrot, Basil, Parsley, Spinach, Tomato, Death Flower, Grape, Strawberry, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, Bluebell, Rose, Daisy, Lily, Orchid, Snapdragon, Chrysanthemum, Bird of Paradise, Pear, Apple, Pomegranate, Cherry

Cottage Living
Mushroom (Nightly,Verdant,Charming,Spicy,Lovely,Mysterious), Blueberry, Raspberry, Chocoberry

Eco Lifestyle
Soy Beans

Get To Work
Quill Fruit, Fang Flower, Glow Orb

Island Living
Kava, Taro, Pineapple, Coconut

Jungle Adventure
BlackBeans

Outdoor Retreat
Chamomile, Fireleaf, Elderberry, Huckleberry, Morel Mushroom

Realm of Magic
Mandrake, Valerian

Seasons
Christmas Rose, Begonia, Crocus, Holly, Dahlia, Snowdrop, Bell Pepper, Green Peas, Green Beans

* All other plants already grow in all seasons and a mod isn't necessary.

This mod is incompatible with any mod that changes any of the following tuning files:

There is no need. The only plants included in Cats & Dogs are the Catnip, Madnip, and Nuzzlenip plants. They are already configured to grow in ALL seasons and I don't have to change it. Out of the 155 growable plants, 39 of them are already configured to grow in all seasons by default.

There is a file for Cats & Dogs in the 11am edition. Not to change them to grow in all seasons, but to change the spawn time to 11am.

Thank you so much for this, I just installed it and couldn't believe the colour of my garden in cottage living. and the harvest was enormous as I've got a 64x64 Lot. I have so many plants and it's hard work, but this mod makes it more worth the effort and time! Absolutely amazing! <3

@gettp: Do you plan on getting Cottage Living and updating this mod to include plants added with that pack? This was my go-to mod for gardening all year, but I've removed it since Cottage Living came out. I've found another mod that works, includes COL plants, AND gives 10 harvestables, even with sheltered plants. I would like to use your mod again, if and when you ever get COL.

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...

Does this clash with a faster harvesting mod that I have? I've noticed that it's no longer giving me plants everyday. Or is it recent updates! I also have Cottage Living and it was fine and working for me till a few days ago. Thank you. xox

I don't know since I have no idea what mod you have.

The current version here is compatible with the current patch. As it says on the front page.

Removed the faster gardening mod by Scumbumbo, but still not harvests. I must have a bug in my save, so I'll have to live with it, as my sims have a lot genealogy. It was great until the most recent update. This is not a complaint. no! no! no! just to let you know my experiences incase anyone else runs into the same problem. . Appreciate all you mods and hard work!

I don't think the update took. My Cottage Living plants still do not grow year round.

Thank you. I did not know you did not have cottage living. I appreciate your hard work on this mod and am looking forward to the update if you ever get that EP. (btw, it is a pretty cool ep)

Cottage is out tho... and they have raspberry and blueberry. Will you provide us with that too?

It's still quite expensive now, so I'll wait a bit until they can give more generous sale on that.

I have cottage living, but still can't harvest all year round in sulani, normal plants like veg, fruit, flowers etc. Not sure what's causing it. All I can think of is that all these updates we've had of late may have caused this to stop working. But thank you for your hard work. Such a great idea!

Added support for Cottage Living. The 6 different new mushrooms, blueberry, raspberry, and chocoberry. None of the new "Oversized" plants are seasonal so I didn't need to include them.
