I just recently added two gardening mules to my account, my problem is before they gimped that for new characters you would get normal yields. Now i am getting 1 item per plant. How long do you have to have a character before your account is not considered new? Am i gonna have to spend time on these characters to make sure they can garden for me properly? I know its a dumb question but i cant find the answer anywhere else..

Also, before you harvest, make sure you turn around three times reciting, "Give me good yields." each time to provide the best results.

During the first 90 days after an account has been created, all gardening results will be limited to a single item. (This limit was introduced on August 3rd, 2009 to counter the massive amounts of gardening trial accounts made by RMT.)

Another dumb gardening question: I've been gardening on myself and a mule for a long time, always planting on the full moon. But I heard somewhere that you are supposed to harvest on the full moon, not plant on it. Any rumors or speculation about that? I realize that it's difficult to know for sure about moon phase rumors, but what do you guys think?

It's not a dumb question at all, however I don't have a definite answer for you as this is one of those things that falls in to the same category as the whole "which way do I stand for crafting" thing. Meaning it's mostly subjective or rumor based. SE has never really come out and 100% confirmed anything to do with either as far as I know. I can tell you what I do for best results however, which is to try to "harvest" on the full moon. Again this is all subjective and I have chosen to do this because of a few friends that have been gardening for a long time before. I have had some truly awesome results doing this if all goes well and I don't "F" it up by feeding at the wrong time or ect. It's never a bad idea to try it both ways a few times on small cheap stuff first to see how it works out best for you and then go on to bigger more expensive stuff from there. Good Luck!
