    More Money Early On

    Anytime In the Garden

    Kill off your Pinata's instead of selling them. When you try to sell them you get a base price, but if you kill them with the shovel, you get the Life Candy (which is the base price of the killed Pinata) and all the candy inside. So for a Whirlm you get 190 instead of 100. I also got 900 for the frog Pinata. Once you do this sell everything you have bought then start another garden. You keep all the money and start fresh.

    Outside Area

    Whenever you're playing in your garden, go to any side (corners won't work). Make your cursor continuously go toward a side of your garden, until you are barely moving, but still going forward. You will go straight through the invisible boundary.
