When I first heard about it, I loved the idea! Getting my own little flower Patch, growing stuff, harvesting good - fantastic! Couldn"t wait for it! But now I finally got around to read that pdf they posted concerning New Magincia and found this: "Unlike plants grown in plant bowls, public garden plants will not produce resources or seeds" WTF? Why? This pretty much kills this idea for me, because why should I plant anything when i can"t get resources from it? Just for a plant with a name tag? This will get old very quickly after you have a handful of plant with your name on it. The other way around - having outdoor plant yield more resources - would have ensured the long time use of the outdoor gardens. As it is, they will probably become pretty barren within a few month at max. Shame for a good idea that they didnt follow it through.
