When planting a berry, the user is given the option to select a berry from the inventory to plant. There are four categories of berries, in increasing order of rarity:
- Common Berries
- Rare Berries
- Special Berries
Planting a berry takes up a garden slot and continues to grow as time passes. However, the plant will dry out after a period of time, and needs to be watered to continue growth. The user may choose to water all plants at once or individually. If a plant is not watered for too long, it will die and disappear from the garden.
Berries take anywhere from 6 to 90 hours to grow. This number may be increased or reduced with the application of Mulch.
Berry plants may be harvested individually by the user or all at once via the "Harvest All" button. Berries are automatically added to the user's inventory. Afterwards, the plant will disappear, clearing up a garden slot. If a plant is not harvested for a certain amount of time, the plant will die and disappear from the Garden. However, there is a chance that a Berry will fall off and a new plant will grow in its place. This chance may be increased with Mulch.
A plant will be able to be harvested for a duration equal to its total growth time before dying.
There is a small chance of finding a Gracidea while harvesting berries.
As berries are picked, Garden EXP is obtained. The amount of EXP gained is displayed in a bar under the garden. Every time the garden levels up, an additional 4 berry slots are available to the user, up to a maximum of 32 slots at Level 8.

Mulch can be purchased and used to grant a variety of effects to a berry plant. Can only be used while planting, with one Mulch per berry plant.
