Wild plants won't grow

★★★★ Newbie

I'm playing the Sims 4 and my Sim is a gardener, and I'm trying to find all the seeds that can't be bought in a seed pack (lemon, onion, potato, etc.)

I have found locations of said plants in multiple places around the two neighborhoods, but the plants never grow to a stage where I can harvest them. I have tried resetting my game, I've waited multiple days in-game to see if they just needed more time to grow, but I've gotten no results what-so-ever. No matter what plant I try to harvest, even flowers, my only options are to "view" and "take a cutting". The harvest option is there for some of the plants, but it's unselectable and I recieve a message that says "There is nothing to harvest, try again later." (And of course, when I go again after a few days have passed, there's still nothing to harvest.) 

Any help would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance.

I had this same problem.  Apparently plants don't grow unless you're on the same lot.  In order to get wild plants to a harvestable state, you have to wait around the lot they're on for a long time.

those plant s onion and lemon a lily a cherry and someother one i took a cutting and grafted them once my sim had the option unlocked to take cutting and graft  to another plant which in turn when it was ready to harvest game me the plants of each one  to plant themselves

pomengerte i found while my fisher sim was in the sylvan glen

 

although some are bugged i could take a cutting from a daisy and strawberry which when  grafted to the other should give me the  dragon fruit but it's unsuccessful as it's bugged

also look around for secondary plants, I needed snapdragons and the one in willow creek garden essence home was a sprout, but there was a wild harvest-able one across the street. the ones in the parks are the hardest as you can't live there

I have had the same problem and I can’t solve it either I think the best thing to do is take a cutting and then graft it with another plant and when that plant grows harvest everything and you should get that plant. I hope I helped you 😊

You just need to visit an area with wild plants to make them start to grow. You can then visit later to harvest.

Your posting is unlikely to have helped the OP as it is 4 years old.
