How To: The Planters In The Sims 3 Supernatural

The new gardening planters in The Sims 3 Supernatural are a great addition to The Sims 3 for bringing your garden plants indoors to keep safe from those pesky zombies! The planters will also come in handy in The Sims 3 Seasons so you can have a garden in the winter. The planters are left with no instructions or game lesson on how they work, but we have figured out how they work!

Update: We have updated this tutorial with a new method for planting in the new planters, thanks to Jacqpinks for the help! You can also still find the older method too.


Method 1 – Easy Planters

  1. Go into Buy Mode and place down a garden planter. Sort by Function, choose Decor and then sort by Plants and you will find them. You can also use the Supernatural collection to find them.
  2. Place down your planter on the ground, inside, or on your Sims porch.
  3. Place a seed, fruit, or vegetable in your Sims inventory.
  4. Click on the seed, fruit, or vegetable in your Sims inventory and choose “Plant”.
  5. A dirt pile will appear allowing you to move it around and choose where to plant. You can choose to put it inside the planter or on the ground.
  6. Place the dirt pile inside the planter and your Sim will then go over and plant inside the planter.
  7. Don’t forget to interact with the planter to water, harvest, and weed the plants!

Important Note: Sims cannot plant trees in planters so bananas or apples (for example) will not be able to be planted in a planter since they grow into trees. You cannot place plants that are already grown or plants located in Buy Debug in the planters. It will not let you (unless you use Moveobjects on, but then your Sim may not be able to interact/garden).

Method 2 – Difficult Planters

  1. Start by taking any vegetable, fruit, mushroom, etc. and place it into your Sims inventory or take it from your Sims refrigerator.
  2. Place the vegetable, fruit, or whatever you are choosing to plant and place it outside on the ground.
  3. Next, click on what you chose to plant and choose “Plant Here”. You Sim will go over and plant into the ground.
  4. Once your Sim has planted your garden plant, it will leave a dirt pile on the ground.
  5. Go into Buy Mode and place down a garden planter. Sort by Function, choose Decor and then sort by Plants and you will find them. You can also use the Supernatural collection to find them.
  6. Place down your planter on the ground, inside, or on your Sims porch.
  7. While in Buy Mode, pick up the dirt pile that your Sim made from planting.
  8. Move the dirt pile near the planter and it should snap to place inside the planter. If not, you should be able to move the hand and dirt pile into the planter to place it.

Important Note: Please see Method 1 as the same limitations with garden planters apply with this method too.

Hope this helps some of you wondering how the new garden planters work, now move your garden plants indoors to keep zombies from eating them!
