Generational Gardens Legacy Challenge
With the addition of the Cottage Living expansion pack to the sims 4, I’ve decided to write a ten generation legacy challenge themed around gardening and flowers! All of these flowers are available in game, though some cannot simply be purchased through a garden plot, so creating your garden may be more difficult!
~Each generation must have a garden of the flower the generation is named after. You may garden other fruits, vegetables, and herbs, however you may not plant other flowers.
~Money cheats are fine. You may build yourself a new house each generation using however much money you want.
~Need cheats are not *technically* fine, however, I use them all the time, so I won’t get too butt hurt if you do use them.
~Obviously, have fun, and feel free to twist and interpret the rules however you please in order to expand on some creative ideas.
~Also, please tag me/the challenge if you decide to post your play through! (GGLC)
Generation One: Bluebell
Meaning: Gratitude, long-lasting love, humility
You grew up with a lack of love and money, but you decide to start your life anew in a new town where nobody knew you or your past. You love flowers, and gardening, so you decide to start your own farm. Your children are your plants, until you have one of your own, and then your whole world centers on them. You’d never let anything bad happen to them, and you hope they grow up to have all of the happiness you didn’t get.

Turning a childhood obsession into something profitable takes a lot of work, but you’re willing to put in the effort.
