Hi Everyone,

We have something new for you today, probably because the idea of Spring has put us in a plant decorating mood. We have taken the outdoor Maxis shrubs, recolored them, and put them in with the other decorative plants in Buy mode. Then we created a planter box to put them in so they can be put anywhere now. The new shrubs have their own GUID, so they will not conflict with the Maxis ones. Custom shrub recolors by Michelle and Planter Box mesh by Debra.

These are Base Game objects - No EP's or SP's needed

Planter: 2 subsets = the box and the fill (soil) Lots of possible combinations
Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Miscellaneous
Price: §15
Environment/Room Rating: 10

Shrubs: Lots of colors, many are custom by Michelle
Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Plants
Price: §33
Environment/Room Rating: 2

Files have been compressed and have been tested in game
