Plants don't allow any interactions after planting.

What happens when the bug occurs? The seed is planted. I can then water the plant. Then nothing ever happens again. No watering, no weeding, no bugs, no harvest. The plant eventually dies.
What do you expect to see? I expect the plant to go through it's normal cycle and allow the plant to be interacted with.

I have now started a new sim, on a new plot, and it's the same thing.  I've also uninstalled and deleted ALL of my save data.  Reinstalled with a totally new Sim, save filed, and lot.  Same thing.

 

The plants don't ever do anything.  They just die.

 

If I leave the game and come back all the plants update and allow me to interact with them again.  They all show up as dry, full of weeds and bugs, and in need of care.  Having to leave the game and come back just to deal with plants is unacceptable.  Any thing I plant after i come back into the game requires the game to be backed out of to at least the world select menu in order for the plants to update and to grow/harvest/etc.

 

 

If I don't reload my game, the plant quality continues to fall and the plant dies.  Gardeners come by and immediately leave saying there's no work for them to do.

I have the exact same problem. I always do gardening in the Sims, and I mostly stay on my lot all the time. The first time I noticed that problem was after I got the paranormal stuff pack (or the patch for it). I own every single pack. 

 

If I start a new game and never leave the lot I am on, not a single plant in the neighbourhood will ever be harvestable. If I plant something, same thing, it becomes mature but there is no harvestables. Even with the 'green thumb' trait (rewards store), the 'great soil' lot trait, the 'micro home' residential lot (which is supposed to make them grow faster). 

 

So every time I plant something, I have to leave my lot soon after planting (loading screen) and come back, and then everything is as it should be. If I don't, eventually everything dies. Very annoying! (That on top of the 'reverting back to dirt pile' problem I often get)

Same.  I like to plant my way to being wealthy.  I haven't had the dirt pile issue, but all of my plants just freeze in their freshly watered state and eventually die.  It's really annoying.

I am having the same issue. I tried selling all my items, moving to a new lot in a new area, I have been obsessively tending my garden & fertilizing when possible. I have my bees pollinate & even tried cheating to evolve or bloom & nothing is working.

I've had some occasions where some of the plants will need weeding/watering in the morning, then when I come back to the lot later in the day, a few more need it. I think I've left and come back up to 3-4 times before it stopped telling me something needed tending.
