I’m also having this issue. Garden is inside a greenhouse, with bees and patchy. I don’t mind not being able to water or weed......but my plants aren’t improving in quality, and I can’t evolve them.

Here is my save from today; I'm playing under Hines. Never shared my save file before, so hopefully I did this right. I'd like to preface this by stating I do NOT have the seasons expansion. 

 

I have not played Sims4 since 4/14 and the last 3 updates were installed this morning. I started a new save (Hines) with no mods on and after the 3rd of 4th time I left the lot and came back, I realized the plants were dripping wet even though they weren't watered. I did have weeds appear for the first time, though.

 

If there's any more info I should provide please let me know. TY

I have encountered the same bug - I just watched water dripping off of the plants that are in a planter on my second floor balcony, despite my lack of water, sprinklers, or rain, since I don't have the Seasons. I want to have my character complete the Freelance Botanist aspiration, but if I can't water ever, it's not going to happen.

I don't have seasons but after it came out I've been unable to water my plants everyday or weed them. If I use testing cheats I can set the plant to be thirsty in a couple in game hours. Every time I leave the lot and come back the plants look like they were just watered. I have mods but I don't think my mod affects the game. (If you must know it's the 'woohoo' mod. I've installed and uninstalled this mod before the patch a couple of times but it never affected the gardening skill.)

I don't have Seasons so how is it that I don't have to water my plants everyday like before and sometimes weed and spray? They're the same. The only I can work my way up to evolve them is fertilizing them.

The whole system has been revamped, so that they need less. Since the overhaul came with the patch, you'll be affected with or without seasons. It's all slower now but if you think it's not working as intended, please remove your mods, test without and if it's still happening, provide your save as @SimGuruNick asked here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Gardening-Plants-don-t-need-water-or-weeding-in-games/m-p...

This is happening to me too except I don't have any packs installed. My plants are just in the ground and not needing care despite the soil clearly being dry. I'm also only able to fertilize the plants once.

The plants in my greenhouse didn't need any water or weeding for a whole in-game year with 4 seasons now. Looks definitely like a bug to me.
