NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139: How to Get Legendary Gardener Achievement

How to get Legendary Gardener achievement in the least amount of time. The dev had made SOME CHANGES to how this achievement can be done, it is recommended that you follow this guide instead of the older ones from PS3 days

 

Achievement Requirement

One of the followings:

Completed both The Shopping List and A Return to Shopping side-quests (during Part One)

OR

Purchased the cultivation handbook from the florist in the village market (during Part Two)

Knowledge needed for this achievement

The achievement REQUIRES you to harvest a white flower or a white flower seed

The game has three basic flowers colours (Red, Gold, Blue) that can be purchased from the Grocery Vendor in Seafront

Getting White from these three basic colours:
1) RED + GOLD = PEACH
2) GOLD + BLUE = INDIGO
3) INDIGO + RED = PINK
4) PEACH + PINK = WHITE (also called Lunar Tear)

NOTE: The flowers which have the first colour will be called the dominant flowers
The flowers which have the second colour will be called the changing flowers
(Eg: in Red + Gold = Peach, Red will be the dominant flowers and Gold will be the changing
flowers)

ATTENTION: In 3, many PS3 guide assume that Red is the dominant flowers and Indigo is the changing flowers. However, this has been changed in Nier Replicant and Indigo is now the dominant flowers and Red is now the changing flowers

The changing flowers will get their colour changed and the dominant flowers colour will stay the same

The changing flowers must be planted in the middle of two dominant flowers in order for them to have the highest chance of changing into the desired colour
