I'm not sure when this started to happen and how often it happens, since the Spice Festival is only every other sim-week and it takes a while to visit it several times. I have only visited the festival maybe two times (it's hard to remember exactly because I visit each festival quite often) after the first time I noticed this.
Anyway, the plants at the Spice Festival overlap. I had repaired the game just before the first time I noticed this, and I have repaired the game after the first time I noticed this.
Grape bush and sage bush overlapping.
Grape bush and mushroom cluster overlapping.
Only option is "Look at mushroom cluster" when there are mushrooms to harvest, this means that two or more mushroom clusters overlap each other so that only one of them is clickable.
I haven't seen this happening with the harvestable plants at the Romance Festival.
I took a look in another save file the other day, and the plants overlap there too. That save file is from 2016 I think, and the one I saw this in first is from 2019.
I'm pretty sure this goes back to one of the earlier bugfixes. Some of the festival plants used to spawn outside the pots but they caused routing errors. The fix was putting them all in the pots, so now we have more plants than pots, which means some of the pots have more than one plant.

I haven't seen this in my game for a while at the Spice Festival. Please see the picture below:
I am still seeing the plants overlap at the Romance Festival.
I've had the same issue for years. The plants used to spawn all over the place at the romance festival and when they fixed that 'now' we have more plants than pots at the spice festival.
