@anicholl22 Very strange.

Can you try repairing your game through Origin ? Does it also happen on a fresh save ?

@anicholl22 Are the plants you're trying to plant in season (not really sure if that makes a difference) ?

Does it happen to all plants ?

Thanks for responding! It seems to happen with all plants, even general seeds packets (e.g. starter veg) which I assume would change dependent on season?

Let me know if I need to start a new thread. But I am having the same issue. I have a Mac and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game and I have also tried to repair the game on Origin with no success. . I don't have mods in the game . Not sure what to do from this point. It is possible that I uninstalled and reinstalled incorrectly; I did it through origin. Let me know if there is something else I can do or what I might be missing . thank you!!

Re: Sim can't garden (Sims 4)

@oldschooldaigle  Please run the Origin reset tool for macOS:

 

https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/origin/origin/how-to-reset-origin-on-mac/

 

Restart your computer, repair the game again, and move your entire Sims 4 user data folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  When you launch the game, a clean folder will spawn with no content.  Don't add anything to this folder yet; just start a new save and let me know whether a new sim can garden.

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

@puzzlezaddict Dang, so doing that deleted my whole game.

Luckily I only had created two sims otherwise that would have been devastating lol.

going to create some sims now and I'll let you know if they are able to plant!
