Quick update; if you place sprinklers they do water the plants, just upgrade them to make sure they are unbreakable.

I'm still having this issue. In square and circle planters indoors. It got better after the update, but it's still happening.

How do I share saves? Also would you need my mods as well? 

 

My game is up to date on all updates.

I don’t have seasons, so no sprinklers.

No mods. You should also test on save with no mods.

This has been happening to me too, though in a different way. My level 8 gardener (not level 1), of whom is also pregnant if that's relevant, will water a plant repeatedly. She won't move to another plant, instead she'll water a single plant without end. It's a cycle that repeats every few seconds, her taking out her watering can for a moment, putting it away, and starting again. It doesn't happen every time, but it happens often enough to become a frustration. Not sure if these two issues are related, but they seem like they could be? I don't know. Thought I should mention it.

Same problem here. I have all of my plants in planters, so you'd think the spacing wouldn't be an issue. I even have the planters spaced out quite a bit, and I sold the plants that were giving me trouble, but my Sim will immediately find new ones to glitch out on and water infinitely. :/

It is SO ANNOYING. My lvl 10 gardener can't even take care of her own plants anymore, so I bought the scarecrow. It worked for a while but eventually he broke too. So I hired a gardener, she broke IMMEDIATELY, so i fired her. Now i have my sims sister water the plants but it's just a matter of time before she breaks too. How many sims does it take to water a plant? A whole family it seem.

I am experiencing the same problems on a public lot - fingers crossed that it won't affect my home lot. I only discovered this problem yesterday when I started to build a greenhouse on a generic lot. Sims would 'fixate' and get stuck tending to the same plant to the point that the other plants dry and wither. The plants are in the large planters, and my sims are level 10 gardeners - both are in the gardening career, if that matters.
