Utility spells are useful for many aspects of gardening. The plow spell removes a targeted plant or dirt pile. The Revive spell lets you turn a plant that has died into a young plant of the same type.
Plants can sometimes suffer from pests. Pests are annoying critters that will cause it to wilt and die if they are not dealt with. To get rid of pests, you will need to cast the appropriate pest fighting spell. Different types of pests require different types of spells. Pests are ranked and require spells equal to or greater than their rank.
If you have a high enough gardening rank, you can cast pest prevention spells to keep pests away from your garden. You can buy pest fighting and pest prevention spells from certain trainers throughout the Spiral, you can buy them at the Crown shop or you can earn them through treasure rewards. Each plant differs by how easy they are to garden, how long they take to grow and mature and how long they live.
As you continue to garden you will earn gardening experience through successfully harvesting plants. There are 10 ranks of gardening:
- Novice Gardener
- Neophyte Gardener
- Apprentice Gardener
- Initiate Gardener
- Intermediate Gardener

The types of seeds you can plant may be restricted, requiring a minimum gardening rank. Additionally, some kinds of gardening equipment and spells require minimum gardening rank to use.
The Gardening Experience bar shows you the experience you have and the total until the next level when you move your mouse over the bar.
