A few days ago, we brought you a sneak preview of the upcoming Greenhouse feature in the Ville, which has now officially launched in the game alongside a set of quests. Apparently, Ethan has a mighty crush on Casey and wants to grow a special flower for her. He needs our help, and we'll need to build a Greenhouse to get started. We're here with a guide to completing these Greenhouse quests, so let's get started!
The Special Gift
Place the Ultimate Greenhouse
Read Gardening 101 Twice
Ask Ethan About the Next Steps
You can only read the Gardening book once every eight hours, but luckily, you can also visit your friends' houses and read the book there, saving you time. When you finish this first quest, you'll receive 75 coins and 2 XP.
Stop and Smell the Roses
Study 2 Violet Roses at Casey's House
Study 2 Orange Tulips at Casey's House
Build the Ultimate Greenhouse
The Ultimate Greenhouse requires friends to "staff," rather than building materials, so you'll need to ask six of your neighbors to help you out. Meanwhile, the flower tasks are just as they are described. A new option will be available for you to "study" the four flowers at Casey's house the next time you visit. You'll receive another 75 coins and 2 XP for completing this quest.
The Casey Rose
Buy 3 Roses
Collect Standard Rose Seeds
Collect 6 Fertilizer
You'll need to bloom red, white, yellow, pink or violet roses to receive seeds, and can ask your friends to send you Fertilizer to finish off this quest. You'll receive 125 coins and 5 XP for completing it.
Create a Hybrid Rose
Grow the Hybrid Rose
Present the Hybrid Rose to Casey
You'll be able to create the Hybrid Rose in your Greenhouse, and can then click on the flower until it finally blooms. You'll receive two XP, 75 coins and the Everbloom Purple Rose for completing this quest.
Build the Power Mulcher
Collect 8 Mulcher Manual Pages
Get Mulching Tips from Ethan
The Power Mulcher is purchased in the store, under the store's "outdoors" section. You'll be able to earn the Mulcher Manual Pages by posting a general request on your wall for all of your neighbors to see. Finishing this quest rewards you with 125 coins and 5 XP.
Tulips: the New Rose!
Use the Power Mulcher 4 Times

Research Rare Plants
Discuss Casey with Madison
To research Rare Plants, you'll need to once again click on bookshelves, either in your own home or in a neighbor's. When you complete this simple quest, you'll receive an Everbloom Blue Tulip, 75 coins and 2 XP.
Third Time's a Charm
Build the Tropic 100 Humidifier
Collect 8 Premium Tiger Lily Seeds
Move 4 Items Around in Your Yard
The Tropic 100 Humidifier can be purchased for 2,250 coins in the game's store. Meanwhile, you'll need to either mulch plants or bloom blue, striped, multi-colored or ultimate tiger lilies to collect Premium Tiger Lily Seeds. You'll receive 200 coins and 10 XP when you complete this quest.
Tick Tock, Tick Tock
Create the Ultimate Tiger Lily
Grow the Ultimate Tiger Lily

To help Ethan, you'll simply need to click on him and choose the new dialog option about "Planning the Romantic Evening." You'll earn 75 coins and five XP for finishing this quest.
Setting the Mood
Have a Wine Rack
Place a Romantic Candle
Place Passion Bouquet
The Wine Rack can be purchased in the store, while the Romantic Candle and Passion Bouquet can be crafted in the Craft Arts Table and Crafty Gardening Table, respectively.
Make Small Talk with Casey Twice
Present Ultimate Tiger Lily to Casey
Rewards: Everbloom Striped Tiger Lily, 2 XP, 75 coins
Apparently, even after all of this work, Ethan still won't be able to build up the nerve to tell Casey how he feels. Maybe sometime the poor fellow will take another chance at it, and if that day ever comes (and comes with new quests), we'll make sure to let you know. In the meantime, we wish you luck completing these complex quests in your game!
