Where is Leif’s Gardening Shop in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is about to get a whole lot more exciting, courtesy of Nintendo’s free Thursday, April 23 update. The patch is (amongst other things) set to introduce new island visitors to the game, one of which is Leif the sloth from 3DS title New Leaf. Not only will players get to see a friendly face return, but our green-fingered friend will bring along stock from his garden center. So, if you’re eager to beautify your island you’ll definitely want to keep reading our “Where is Leif’s Gardening Shop in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?” guide. Here’s Leif’s location.

Where is the Leif location in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Leif's Gardening Shop location

Leif is soon set to make his debut in the first Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch game. Players can expect to find Leif at random intervals in the Resident Services building plaza; he’ll be set up in the same place that Mabel appears before establishing the Able Sisters Tailoring Shop. It’s currently unclear whether or not players will be able to have Leif move to their islands permanently, in a similar fashion.

When Leif appears, he can be interacted with in order to purchase a variety of seeds and pre-grown shrubs to decorate your island. As can be seen in the above image, shrubs will cost 280 Bells each and seed packets are priced at 240 Bells.

It’s worth noting that Leif isn’t guaranteed to appear on your island every single day. Like other temporary stores, Leif comes and goes on different days, bringing new stock each time. You’ll want to make the most of his appearances to collect all seeds and shrubs.

    • Shrubs cost 280 Bells.
