Among other changes the Nature Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, also brought with it a new item called Shrub Starts. You will be needing this item as a decoration for your island or for a Nook Miles+ challenge. In this Animal Crossing New Horizons guide, we are going to walk you through how you can get shrubs starts in the game.
Leif a plant and shrub seller, whom you will run into outside the Resident Services while the Nature Day event is happening, will be the person to obtain the Shrub Starts from. He will have many different kinds of them in his stock.
The appearance of a Shrub Start, is of a small bush, that once planted in the ground will grow into a lovely flowering shrub. According to Leif, a Shrub Start is basically a plant that is somewhere between a flower and tree.
You will get the Shrub Starts from Leif, in exchange of bells. Once you have them, go to the area of your choice and plant them. For doing that you first need to dig a hole, then go into your inventory and choose the Shrub Start. Then select Plant 1. These plants don’t need much watering, so they can grow fine even on their own.
As the Shrub Starts are a new item, planting them will help you earn a lot of Nook Miles, specifically when the new Nook Miles+ challenge that came with Nature’s day is concerned. So keep yourself updated on the new challenges that come up every day in order to make the most of this item.
This is how you can get shrub starts in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
