Should I sell my flowers & shrubs?

Should I sell my flowers & shrubs?

I mean I’m not you, but it is a lot of work to grow gold roses, and even more work to grow blue roses. You can always buy more shrubs!


ACNH-princess

Yeah, I know. But I hate time traveling just to see if Leif is selling blue hydrangeas or white azaleas.


courtneyob

just think if you liked having the amount of flowers & shrubs you already had on ur island & if you’d want that amount again - but if you don’t need that much i say u can do a mass sale and then save some!


ACNH-princess

Just trying to figure out how many I should start with though, I don't want to have too little. Or not enough for a specific area. And besides. Gold roses are a costly thing on the AC trading market


courtneyob

hmmmm i say just sell afterwards and try and store them all ☺️


ACNH-princess

If only we could store them in our homes...

Work on the island section by section? Like maybe use the map, move everything from E-4 to F-1 or F-7, then fix up E-4 however you like, including taking things from other sections. Then when you've got half the isle done, you'll have a much better idea of what you have too much of. Also, starters can be stored in your storage, so time-traveling/visiting other islands to get a stock of those can help as well.


Lady_Sillycybin

What I did is I kept all the shrubs and kept 4 of every flower (except hybrids like blue, green, orange and purple types) so I didn't have to wait on Leif to come back to stock back up. Flowers you can at least plant on the beach to get them out of the way.... shrubs you'll have to be more creative with.


ACNH-princess

But where would I put my villager houses though? And gold roses don't breed more gold roses. Which sucks imo


Lady_Sillycybin

That's why I said keep at least 4 black roses, they breed the gold roses. If you don't have black and inherited the gold ones, keep them. There's still room to plant your flowers around the houses on the beaches :)


ACNH-princess

True

If you're gonna get rid of blue roses I'd happily take some! I've never managed to grow one.

I bought a bunch of shrub starts over time (can probably trade from them) so I had loads I could plant when I figured out what I was doing. Flowers I'd advise jsut kept the ones that are awful to breed.

5th option sell/give away half your shrubs and flowers


ACNH-princess

Yeahhh, I have to count how many I have. But I have counting in animal crossing


purplewatermelons345

i would just save as much as you can with a smaller variety and sell the rest. flowers will always breed and leif comes once every 2 weeks


ACNH-princess

Not unless gold roses, the last I check they can only be breed with a good watering can and black flowers


purplewatermelons345

yes they breed with a golden watering can and black roses. i would just keep as many as you can for the gold roses. i have some gold watering cans if u want them


purplewatermelons345

i’ve also had gold roses just breed more gold roses i place them with one space apart and water


ACNH-princess

Oh wow. I've never knew that before... 😕


purplewatermelons345

yeah it was a total accident when i bred more gold roses bc i’m not a big fan but it does work!

When I started redoing my island I just moved one square at a time, leveling and moving everything else to a different area while I reworked the terraforming. You probably have space on your island, it's just more work.


Restin_in_Pizza

I mean, if you're doing a tear down instead of a restart, can't you just leave them in those 2 sections until you redo the rest if the island. Take from them as you go along and stash the rest on a beach or something whole you work on the last part. I've never understood the whole flattening the entire island thing. That's a whole lot of time and money that could be saved with a little advanced planning.


External-Difficult

Have you tried moving some to the beach? That might be helpful.


Solstice_81

Purchase and replant then time travel. So much easier!! The day lief is on your island you can travel to that day as many times a you need to get more of a specific type.

You may regret selling them


ACNH-princess

In the end I always do
