Hi @Jan_831

I've tested this and have no issues buying these.

Are there any particular ones you have issues with ?

Hi Crin,

I tried several times last night while playing and all the seed packs that require a level 5 or 10 gardening skill are locked and when I hover over them it says I need to be a level 10 gardener.  My Sim is a level 10 gardener, so I am not sure why it won't unlock.  Thanks for your help.

Could you try a fresh save for testing purposes ?

This happened to me too.  My sim is lvl 10 gardener and I can’t buy them in build/buy.  My sim was able to buy them in live mode by clicking on the planters though.

Hi Crin,
I did a fresh save and repaired the game, I am still unable to purchase the seeds. I will try buying them in live mode as mentioned in the response above and let you know if that works.

Going to tag this as needs input as I've seen a few reports on the officials about this.

Also added to that list.
