One of these tasks is FE3H gardening. The other tasks you might be reluctant to do but be aware that the gardening task is no ordinary task. It is a task that will help you throughout the game.

Also, the Fire Emblem Three Houses gardening tutorial starts very early on in the game. You can start the tutorial through a side quest that is given to you by Dedue in Chapter 1. The side quest is titled Green Thumb Beginnings

Once you have unlocked the gardening mini-game through the side quest we will recommend that you should dedicate ample time to it. In Fire Emblem three Houses gardening is a very extensive and complicated task. However, it rewards the user generously.

Basics Of Gardening In Fire Emblem Three Houses

Now that you have unlocked gardening through the quest you can now freely use the garden whenever you have the chance to visit the monastery. Gardening is one of the best free sources of Professor EXP. As FE3H gardening does not use actions or in-game time of the character thus making it a free source of professor EXP.

The plantation of the garden takes time to grow. Over time, the seeds that you would have planted would grow bigger and yield delicious rewards. It takes a whole Exploration Day to fully grow a seed.

This means that it will take a week to harvest your rewards. We use the word ‘week’ because you will harvest the plants on your next exploration day which will come after a week. 

However, at the start, you will be able to plant only one seed. Also, as your professor level increases so does the number of seeds that you can plant. And another thing that comes with your professor level is the option to cultivate the seeds.

It can be done through different options provided that you have a high professor level. Also, the cultivation takes money to use. But we would say that it is well worth it as it provides more useful rewards.  

Professor Level: Seeds & Cultivation Options 

Below are the corresponding number of seeds and cultivating options that will unlock according to your professor’s level.

  • Professor Level E: At level E you can plant 1 seed and you unlock the “Infuse With Magic” cultivation option that is free.
  • Professor Level E+: At level E+ you still can plant 1 seed but this time you get a new cultivation option called “Pour Amid Water”. The cultivation option costs you 300G.
  • Professor Level D: At level D you can plant 2 seeds and yet again you get “Prune” which is another cultivation option that costs you 500G.
  • Professor Level D+: Unfortunately you do not gain anything at level D+. It is the same as level D.
  • Professor Level C: however, at level C you now can plant 3 seeds and, additionally you unlock “Scattering Bone Meal” which is another cultivation option. It costs 1000G.
  • Professor Level C+: Like level D+ level C+ is also the same as level C.
  • Professor Level B: At level B you can plant 4 seeds and can use the “Use Caledonian Soil” cultivation option that costs 1500G.
  • Professor Level B+: Level B+ is also the same as level B, unfortunately.
  • Professor Level A: Level A is the top level where you can plant 5 seeds and can use every cultivating option including the “Use Pegasaus Blessing” which is also the cultivation option that unlocks with this level. The cultivation option costs 2000G.

Management Aspect Of Gardening

Cultivation In Fire Emblem Three Houses

Fire Emblem Three Houses Gardening has a very complicated management aspect to it. The type of the seeds also matters. There are a lot of seeds that you can acquire by mixing other seeds while planting them. Also, you have to be careful about which seeds you plant because they decide what type of reward you earn.

However, in addition to the type of seeds, there is also a level of seeds that are represented by stars. The level is out of 5 stars. The higher the star level higher the reward.

Also, we strongly recommend that you consider cultivating each of your harvests as this will immensely help you gain high-tier rewards. However, it costs money as mentioned before but as always it is extremely worth it. Consider it as an investment.


There are a total of three types of rewards that you can receive. First is that you will receive a lot of Professor EXP whenever you plant seeds or harvest them. The second is that you will receive items like food or flowers that have a lot of uses in Fire Emblem Three Houses.

Lastly is that you can get unique rewards that will increase your character’s stats and it also grants other benefits.

Combos Of Seeds

Now, FE3H gardening has other things that you might want to consider researching on. Like Combos of seeds. These combos will help you get certain seeds and rewards that will help you massively in your journey.

It is a very effective way to help your character towards a specific class build. It is also a great way to level up in Fire Emblem Three Houses

Also, gardening is not a very lengthy task and does not deplete your action points. So it is a task that you can do regularly. However, we again recommend that you invest your money and cultivate each harvest as it will give a higher chance of getting booster items. 

Now, we will also recommend you plant all your plants of a single seed type and again cultivate them. This will ensure your booster item drops. It will also keep you away from certain complicated ways of doing the same thing. And as for the seeds, you will be able to buy all of them from a certain character after Chapter 5.
