How to Grow Plants in Sons of the Forest

In order to create a garden and start planting in Sons of the Forest, you need to craft some planters. There are two kinds:

  1. Standing Planter – Crafted with 16 sticks.
  2. Wall Planter – Crafted with 13 sticks, but you will need a wall to hang it on.

With your planter crafted, place it on the ground or a wall. It is found in the gardening tab of the book (“B” on the keyboard). To plant, you will need seeds, and to get them – find berry bushes and pick them up. There is a chance for the seeds to drop each time you pick one up. Another way is to destroy the bushes or flowers for the seeds to drop on the ground. If they do, pick them up and use them with your planter.

Here is the list of all kinds of different seeds that you can plant in the Sons of the Forest:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Arrowleaf
  • Blackberry
  • Blueberry
  • Chicory
  • Devil’s club
  • Guarana berry
  • Fireweed
  • Horsetail
  • Salmonberry
  • Yarrow

Keep in mind that you can plant only one type of seed per planter, and you will have to wait for 2-3 in-game days in order to see your plants grow. Have fun gardening in Sons of the Forest!
