I am able to plant poison ivy seeds with a garden pie now, and so I looked up the prices on seeds and berries.

Seeds are around 3-4k each and 1 berry is 4-5k each. The bushes never get diseased or die, so its a huge profit, but what I was wondering is if people typically keep planting new bushes or just pick the berries of bushes they planted?


Easy question, but can't find anything online about it.

Depends if Exp or GP that's more important to you really. If it's xp, dig up and replant, if it's money, just leave it as it is and re-pick on your next run.

The berries grow back 1 at a time at the rate the Farming Cycle updates (which I believe is 15 minutes right?)
Your bush will regrow all of it's berries faster than a new bush will grow.
But you will be missing out on the Check-Health XP

So it's more a matter of if you want more profit, or a mix of XP and profit

The bush will alway regrow berries, so it's best to leave the bush to grow the berries unless you need the exp then if you have the seeds then replant the seed on every trip after you have havested your berries.

I like to think of the Dark Bow like a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) - you get one shot and then you're screwed.

I would plant one at each patch and just leave it there to collect berries every farm run. I'd rather have that cash coming in to cover some supplies/ seeds rather than get exp for planting a new bush.

It also depends on how often you actually go check

If you're diligent about it, and check every 45-60 minutes to harvest the berries as they grow, you'd be better off leaving them there.
But if you're only gonna go check once...maybe twice a day, you'll be better off just planting them again so you get the xp with the berries.
