[Gardening] A couple questions for Sak...

    Sak, can you please tell me a couple things about the gardening changes so I know what to plan on doing...

    1. Can't clip Bonsai of any kind. Is this intended or will they be made clippable soon?

    2. Weight of seeds and clippings/reeds seems out of proportion. If they weighed 1/10 stone then collecting all the seeds and clipping the plant would still be about 1 stone, the weight of the plant originally. Now when you are collecting every plant yields 9 stone of stuff even though the plant itself weighs 1 stone. Do you think this could be adjusted?

    3. Crossing for mutants seems overly difficult. Do you think you could increase the chances to make it worth our time to go through the exercise?

    Thanks for your time, and for all you have done for gardening.

    I'll second the vote for bonsai plants to be clippable.

    I can see the weight issue being a minor annoyance when harvesting seeds, but I don't think it needs to be changed. Secures have no weight limit.

    I don't think the chance to get a mutant should change. It's always a nice bonus when I see a mutant appear. If it happens too often then it won't be special.

    There is one thing I would change regarding mutants however. Both white mutants and plain plants use the same color font. The font for the plain plants needs to be a shade of gray so that they can be easily distinguished from the mutant. Ideally, this shade of gray will be darker than what is used in the classic client, so it's even more obvious when a mutant appears.
