How to Get the Best Output From Your Garden?

To make the most out of your gardening efforts, here’s what you can do:

You will be able to tend to your garden with your friends and dormmates starting from 06/16. You will occasionally see some of your friends standing near the 1st Floor that you can interact with to garden together during the evening. The easiest way to identify them is to look for a blue smiley face above their head. Doing so will allow you to get more potent items in addition to the ones you usually get. For instance, if you plant Soul Spinach Sprouts and tend to them with Fuuka, you’ll get an extra batch of Large Soul Spinach x 2, which restores 50 SP to 1 ally.

Final Thoughts

Gardening is a great way to keep your stock of battle items replenished at all times. You can go tend to your garden as many times as you want and plant seeds as per your requirements. And the best part is – you can also do it with your friends, which not only improves their Combat Characteristics but also gives you a larger yield. So, what are you waiting for? If you haven’t invested in this side activity in Persona 3 Reload yet, then you should get to it right away!
