A Garden is a facility available at any plot on The Ranch, Ogden's Retreat, Mochi's Manor and Viktor's Workshop. Gardens are used to grow Fruit and Veggies, except the Kookadoba and Gilded Ginger.

Slimepedia Entry


The gardens used by ranchers use advanced technology to rapidly grow clones of fruits and veggies in a natural, though greatly sped up, way. By placing a sample into the replicator, the garden's soil is instantly populated by a fruit tree or veggie patch and will keep producing harvests until removed.


A default Garden will produce crops up to their maximum harvest once every 18-24[citation needed] in-game hours.
Giving the garden a splash of Water or Ancient Water will double the growth rate of the crop for 23 in-game hours. This effect does not stack with the Sprinkler.

  • 1.3.2 - Fixed an issue where scareslimes sometimes weren’t scary enough. Scareslimes are back to being 2 spooky 4 slimes.
  • 1.3.0b - Fixed bug where sometimes gardens would produce slightly less food than intended. To claim any carrots you may have lost, please send a postcard to 'Where's My Carrots?' c/o Monomi Park in Walla Walla Washington, or visit your local grocer.
  • 1.2.0 - Fixed the garden tutorial getting stuck if you planted a crop before the tutorial prompt.
  • 1.1.1 - Renamed Garden Deluxe as Deluxe Upgrade.
  • 1.1.0 - Miracle Mix and Garden Deluxe upgrades were added.
  • 1.0.1 - The timer was removed from crops, allowing for infinite harvests.
  • Before 0.2.0 - Implemented.



  • The Slimepedia icon of the Garden and Garden Deluxe depicts Cuberries growing on Mint Mango trees, with the coloring and trunk pattern similar to the Pogofruit tree.
  • You can increase hourly food yield by harvesting crops as soon as they reach maturity, removing the crops for 10Newbucks.png, and then replanting it. Doing so skips a portion of the regrowth phase.
  • The Deluxe Upgrade is not present in the Garden's Slimepedia Entry, despite Miracle Mix being present in it.
  • You cannot grow kookadoba fruit, spicy tofu or gilded ginger in a garden.
  • If you either jump or walk into the scareslime, it will wobble, similar to a bobblehead. It also makes a springing noise, audibly played whenever you run into it.
