A gentle breeze rustles the flowers in a small island oasis. Sprout: Idle Garden transports you to this tranquil place to create your own floral paradise.
You start on a desolate chunk of land in a calm blue sea. Place tiles to expand the island, adding soil and flowerpots. Plant seeds in the pots, then build paths for your small gardener. As the gardener walks, they pick any bloomed flowers they pass.
Each flower is worth money, and the income rolls in even when you aren’t playing. But the more you interact, the faster your garden blossoms. You can tap to manually harvest flowers, then spend cash to buy more expensive (and lucrative) flowers and hire more gardeners to automate the process.
Sprout imparts even more agency by letting you design your island. From the pathways to the pottery, the appearance of your pocket Eden is in your hands. One option: Maximize efficiency by constructing the perfect path so that your gardeners can harvest the “best” flowers as quickly as possible.
Alternately, just choose flowers—bright white daisies, fiery lotuses, purple pansies, and more—simply because you like their look, and arrange them however you like. It might mean you earn money a little more slowly, but as any garden guru will tell you, you can’t rush beauty.
