The following is included in the download file:

  • Lavender Harvestable

This plant will have year-round foliage unless the temperature drops to freezing. If that happens the plant will go dormant until the Spring.  

If this plant is in bloom it will attract Monarch butterflies that your Sim can catch if you have Outdoor Retreat installed. It’s flowers can help improve the mood of any bees nearby and there is a small chance that Sims with the Flower Arranging skill may become inspired by being near them.

These grow well in dryer places and are usefel when grown close to a Beebox. Plant them in large groupings near your flower arranging table to keep your Sim inspired while making arrangements!

* Seed Packet Additions & Custom Notebook Entry – see ‘Optional’ tab

The ‘Garden Plants’ file is required for this plant to show up in game. 

The ‘Garden Plant Effects Tuning’ file is needed for any special attributes/effects to function. You can find more information about these effects on my Harvestable Handbook Page.

You only need one copy of each of these files for all your plants in game. Be sure to check the ‘Updates’ tab on the download pages to ensure you have the most recent version. 

NOTE: The file above is technically not required to use the harvestable. If you don’t use this file be warned that you may have LE errors due to missing references. I will not be creating/supporting a version that does not use this file.

The script mod below is required for this harvestable to show up in Seed Packets, the Scarecrow’s Pockets, and to give it it’s own Notebook Entry.

If you choose not to download this mod:

  1. Your Sim will only have access to this harvestable from debug (with showhiddenobjects cheat) or from the grocery stall (if applicable).
  2. When your Sim researches this plant it will not be stored in your notebook.
I’ve made it so the Notebook Entry info also shows up under the plant description so you can see it when you hover over a plant as well as when you view your notebook in your Sim’s phone. You can see an example below: 
 

Some custom plants turn VERY dark indoors. I’ve already brought the issue up at Sims4Studio and as soon as a solution is found I’ll update my files. Until then, if you leave a wall open in the area you have your plants they will show properly.

Please follow me on Patreon, Twitter, or Tumblr for updates to this content.

If you have a previous version of this harvestable it’s attributes and effects may not work properly after an update. There currently isn’t a fix so you may need to replant it.
 
I’ve found a work-around to this issue, although it may not work 100% of the time. If you plant the new version of this harvestable on the same lot it will trigger the old version to work properly. Keep in mind though, if you delete the new version the older version will revert back to not working properly.
