Are your flowerbeds and alleys lacking in colour? Since the 1.2.0 update, Leif is present in Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch. Quickly meet him and learn everything you need to know about him and planting bushes in our complete Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide!
Leif is, like Redd, an NPC who appeared after game update 1.2.0. He is a friend of Timmy & Tommy who has heard of their flourishing business and will sometimes decide to come and jump on your island as any other travelling merchant in the game.
This NPC does not come empty-handed, indeed, he will sell you bushes. This new element of customization will allow you to enhance your island even more with different colours and shapes and to actively participate in missions related to nature day. It will also sell the three basic varieties of two types of flowers that you don’t have natively on your island. He can also buy your weeds at twice the usual price. Note that selling them allows you to complete the successful Nook Miles Challenge.
Planting the Bushes
The available plants and shrub in the new Leif shop are:
Pink and white azalea sprouts
(are in bloom from April to June)
Red and yellow hydrangea sprouts
(in bloom from June to July)
Yellow and red hibiscus shoots (in bloom from July to September)
Orange and yellow osmanthus shoots
(in bloom from September to November)
Holly sprouts (in bloom from December to March)
After purchasing the bush starts, plant them in the ground like you would any other plant. Pull up your inventory and choose to plant the bush starts. It will then pop-up at the location you selected. You cannot walk through the bushes you plant, so make sure you think about where you want them. We’re not sure whether or not you can breed them yet, but it’s a good possibility.
