I have a garden set up which is about 20-30 tiles across with Daybloom seeds planted in some of the tiles, plus another row 3 tiles above it (forming a tunnel) with Daybloom planted along that too. When I walk along and swing my sword, it harvests all the grown plants.
The only thing is that I haven't been getting much actually growing in it. I've left the Daybloom for about 3 in-game days and not had anything to harvest. What I'm wondering is when I harvest the grown Daybloom plants, because of the large arcing swing of my sword, is it also uprooting all the seeds I've planted or will they continue to grow and just take a long time?
