Gardening is an activity where Toons can start and grow their own garden at their estate with the gardening kit that they purchase from Clarabelle's Cattlelog. Once a Toon receives their gardening kit, a guide is shown, then tree plots and gardening trays appear around their house. Gardening involves three main activities: growing flowers, growing trees, and erecting decorative sculptures.
- Toons can earn a total of four laff boosts by obtaining gardening trophies from their flower growing. A gardening trophy is awarded for each group of 10 different flowers a Toon plants, with different flowers available according to their progress in gardening.
- Toons may also plant up to eight gag trees, which increases the planted gag's damage by 10% (rounded down) or increase its accuracy.
- With sufficient gardening skill, Toons also can purchase garden supplies to plant decorative statues or sculptures.
Shovels and watering cans are the primary gardening tools, and they improve with use.

There are currently four different watering cans Toons can use to garden. To earn another watering can, Toons must water trees and flowers a specific amount of times, whether on their own estate or elsewhere. After each watering can advancement, water points are reset for the next watering can level. Each consecutive watering can has a higher amount of points to complete.
The game displays a notice after each use of the watering can, whether a watering can point was earned or not. Over-watering earns no points, and watering with an already maxed Huge watering can earn no points. The only benefit of an upgraded watering can is to reduce the frequency needed for watering. Refer to the following table for further information.
|Watering can||Points||Days per water (max 16)||Amount of times can be watered|
Toons have the opportunity to use four different shovels to garden, each of which has two levels and earns shovel points. To gain shovel points, a Toon must plant and pick fully grown flowers of the highest level of jellybean combinations their shovel permits. To earn the next level or the next shovel, Toons must continue to plant, pick, and replant their maximum-level flowers a specific number of times. Doing so earns one point per flower when picked, and a "+1 Shovel Skill" notice appears.
Each shovel type has two levels and requires increasingly more points to achieve. Shovel points for each type (Tin, Bronze, Silver, Gold) begin at zero to count toward the next shovel type. Once the shovel level advances, flowers from the prior smaller jellybean combinations may still be planted, but those do not not earn shovel points. Refer to the following table for further information.
|Shovel||Points||Jellybean combination required to advance|
|Tin||0 - 39||1 jellybean|
|Tin||40 - 79||2 jellybeans|
|Bronze||0 - 79||3 jellybeans|
|Bronze||80 - 159||4 jellybeans|
|Silver||0 - 159||5 jellybeans|
|Silver||160 - 319||6 jellybeans|
|Gold||0 - 319||7 jellybeans|
|Gold||320 - 639||8 jellybeans|
Shovel types and levels are important primarily for the advancement of a Toon's flower collection, since a gardening trophy (and a laff point) is earned for each set of 10 new flower types in the Shticker Book. The shovel type does not affect the gardening of gag trees, but maximizing the shovel's skill level does enable a Toon to access certain decorative sculptures and statues.
Even after harvesting all types of flowers and earning the fourth gardening laff point, the Gold shovel would not yet be fully maxed. Toons must continue to plant and harvest eight-jellybean flowers until their Gold shovel skill reaches its limit.
There are eight different main categories of flowers that a Toon may plant. These include Daffodils, Lilies, Daisies, Pansies, Carnations, Roses, Tulips, and Petunias. Each flower category has at least two varieties of species, for a total of 40 different flowers.
Planting a flower
A Toon can plant a flower outside their house in various pots or window boxes, with up to 10 flower planting spots available at a time. Using the "Plant" function prompts a jellybean generator to appear. In order to plant a flower, a certain combination and order of jellybeans must be selected.
Jellybean combinations for flowers
Different jellybean color combinations create different flowers. The combinations must be chosen in order, otherwise they may plant a different flower or no flower at all.
Below are the jellybean combinations for each type of flower. Jellybeans for flowers use eight different colors: red, green, orange, violet, blue, pink, yellow, and cyan.
|Summer's Last Rose|
|Time and a half-o-dil|
Flowers can be sold at the wheelbarrow located in a Toon's estate after harvesting. The sale price is twice the cost of the flower. For example, six-jellybean flowers have a sale value of 12 jellybeans each, seven-jellybean flowers have a sale value of 14 jellybeans each, and so on.
Clarabelle's Cattlelog offers garden supplies that can be planted as statues or sculptures in a specified area of a Toon's garden. The statues resemble certain Disney characters (four types) or a Toon (four poses), or three miscellaneous sculptures. Some statues cannot be planted before a Toon reaches a certain requirement.
Planting a statue
A Toon can plant a statue outside their house in the small gray podium after purchasing the statue from Clarabelle's Cattlelog. Using the "Plant" function prompts a jellybean generator to appear. In order to plant a statue, a certain number of jellybeans must be selected.
Jellybean combinations for statues
Different jellybean colors create different statues. Unlike flowers, a statue does not require combining different colored jellybeans, but rather, a certain number of a single jellybean color.
Below are the required jellybeans for each type of statue. Six different jellybean colors are used for statues: red, green, orange, violet, blue, and silver. The silver color is used only for certain statues or sculptures, and not for planting flowers.
|Statue name and cost||Combination|
|Donald Statue (125 jellybeans)|
|Mickey Statue (250 jellybeans)|
|Minnie Statue (500 jellybeans)|
|Mickey Fountain (1,000 jellybeans)|
|Toon Wave Statue (5,000 jellybeans)|
|Toon Victory Statue (5,000 jellybeans)|
|Toon Authority Statue (5,000 jellybeans)|
|Toon Embrace Statue (5,000 jellybeans)|
|Melting Snowman (25 jellybeans)|
|Melting Snowdoodle (50 jellybeans)|
|Flappy Cog (50 jellybeans)|
- Main page: Gag trees
Gag trees can grow gags. Once planted, watered, and fully grown, the tree boosts the power of that gag in battle. This is called an "organic bonus". Once per day, a Toon may also pick gags from the tree to place in their gag pouch. Toons can plant a gag tree on any of eight available spots around their estate, by choosing the gag from their inventory. However, in order to plant any level 2+ gag, the preceding gag in that track first must be planted. For example, the Feather, Megaphone, and Lipstick must be planted before the Bamboo Cane can be planted. If a lower level gag tree is removed, higher level trees are unable to produce gags or organic bonuses.
Under normal circumstances, a tree takes a total of three days to grow per level of the gag. This means that a level 7 gag tree takes three weeks to grow.
|Gag level||Number of days|
As with flowers, the time required to grow a gag tree can be shortened during special events when gardening is accelerated. Gag tree blooming is also accelerated, so gags can be picked more than once per day during the event.
The organic bonus increases damage for offensive gags, increases healing for Toon-Up gags, and increases accuracy for Lure gags. The bonus actually becomes active the day before a tree is fully grown (for example, 11 days after planting a gag tree with a level 4 gag). Gags with the organic bonus active are known as "organic gags".

Flowers and gag trees grow at 12:00 AM Pacific Time on a daily basis for any gardening activity that was done before said time. For example, if a flower or gag tree is planted and watered at 11:59 PM, it grows at 12:00 AM. Under normal circumstances, if it is planted at 11:59 PM, but watered at 12:00 AM, it does not grow until 12:00 AM the following day. However, if a Toon is at their estate while the clock rolls over to 12:00 AM, the game does not update their garden until they leave, making any gardening done during this time count for the previous day; for example, if a Toon arrives at their estate at 11:59 PM and waits until 12:03 AM to garden, their plants grow once they leave their estate.
For every 10 flowers planted, Toons earn a gardening trophy and a laff boost. There are four trophies in total for 40 flowers, which accumulates to four laff boosts.
- Watering Can
By planting 40 flowers and therefore earning the above trophies to max gardening, the Treemendous Gardener Outfit is awarded to Toons. A maxed shovel and watering can are not required to obtain the outfit.
- For one week after gardening was released to Toontown Rewritten on December 6, 2014, Toons could redeem the code, "gardening-is-go", in the Shticker Book to obtain a free gardening kit without having to wait for their next Cattlelog issue.
- Only one of each gag can be planted per garden.
- When the "Speedy Garden Growth" Silly Team is awarded after the Silly Meter maxes if it wins, Toons' gardens grow every 6 hours (at 12:00 AM, 6:00 AM, 12:00 PM, and 6:00 PM Pacific Time) without depleting water.
