Click here for a free puzzle for first-time Rows Garden solvers. There are more hints than usual:
- In the Rows clues, enumerations are given. If the answer were ICECREAM, the clue includes “(3,5)”.
- The Bloom clues are in the order they appear in the grid, left to right and top to bottom, for each of the three (Light, Medium, and Dark) types.
- Bloom clues also indicate the direction the answer should be written. “(+)” = clockwise; “(-)” = counterclockwise.
Once you solve this, try a standard puzzle without these hints, which are normally not a part of Garden Party puzzles. In a standard Garden Party puzzle, the Bloom clues are not listed in the order they appear in the grid, but they ARE listed in alphabetical order of their answers.
