One of the biggest features in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is gardening. Whether you’re finding all kinds of seeds in the galaxy or growing your very own plants, there’s a lot to keep you busy in this part of the game. So, here’s everything you need to know about gardening in the Fallen Order sequel.

There’s a lot of great content in Star Wars: Jedi Survivor and one that was perhaps fairly unexpected is the inclusion of gardening. When you’re not in intense lightsaber battles in the game, you can relax by tending to your garden onboard the Mantis.

What starts as just a few potted plants can turn into Cal’s own fully realized garden paradise. There are plots of land to open and a lot of seeds to collect, and you’ll even find a helpful NPC to join in on your efforts along the way.

If you’ve got a green thumb, here’s everything you need to know about gardening in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

How to start gardening in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

After a short while exploring Pyloon’s Saloon, you’ll stumble upon a stairway leading you to the roof of Greez’s fine establishment. It’s here where Cal can begin his gardening efforts.

Just by slashing through various foliage out in the wild with your lightsaber, you’ll start to collect a wide range of seeds. On the roof, in the open plots of dirt, is where you can plant these seeds and watch as they grow over time.

Each seed type has its own size, appearance, and time to grow. However, you can always weed any unwanted plants and start over to optimize your garden plots til your hearts content. There’s no real gameplay incentive to do so, other than simply customizing the rooftop garden and designing your own army of colorful flowers.

How to find seeds around the galaxy

As you journey from planet to planet with the Mantis crew, you’ll naturally happen upon a broad array of seeds on your travels. Just by following the main path, you’ll often notice some glowing particle effects scattered around bushes. By attacking these bushes, seeds will automatically be plucked from the ground and float their way into your inventory.

With that said, if you’re really looking to make the most of your garden, exploration is absolutely vital. Some of the game’s most exceedingly rare seeds are often found in hard-to-reach locations. Venturing off into the distance and traversing your way up to new areas is essential, as you’ll track down the most dazzling seed types in the game.

How do you find seeds on the galaxy map?

If you happen to be struggling with your seed-hunting journey, fear not. Help is on the way as Respawn has added a feature that pinpoints the exact location of every single seed in the galaxy right on your map.

To unlock this special feature, you first have to expand your garden. By unlocking every plot of land on the roof, you’ll then be able to have BD-1 slice through a nearby tool to upgrade your map. More on that below.

How to expand the garden in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

At the very beginning of Survivor, just one plot of land is available for your gardening efforts. As you progress through the game, however, more and more open up for further expansion. But just how do you unlock these extra plots?

First things first, you need one particular NPC, Pili, to help expand your garden. Pili is that NPC and this charming character can be found naturally as you progress through the story on Jedha. After coming across this lonesome gardener, Cal can advise her to visit Pyloon’s Saloon in order to really hone her craft.

From there, Pili will help grow your garden over time. Fortunately, it’s a simple matter of just continuing to find seeds everywhere you go. As you play through the core storyline and venture through side content, be sure to pick up any seeds you come across. In doing so, all remaining plots of land will automatically open up thanks to Pili.
