The gardener level icon as shown in the menu in Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise.

You've leveled up! You filled the petals around the clock, which means you've taken a step close to becoming a truly great gardener. All kinds of things happen when you become a better gardener. Costolot's store has opened. You can buy some paving, some fences, a couple of items to decorate your garden with and some seeds. Seedos will have some new seeds in his pouch too.

The level the player is currently at determines what items the player can obtain or purchase. As a player obtains Awards the player gains experience points which are marked by the blue "Experience Petals" circling the clock. Awards can only be obtained once, thus the amount of experience that can be earned is limited. Blue beads indicate additional experience points required to level up. When the twelve petals are blue and blue beads are present, one of the beads will disappear. When all of the twelve petals are blue and no blue beads are present, the player will level up.

Leveling up usually increases the amount of items sold in Costolot's Store and other stores. Leveling up may also make Jardiniero give an upgrade to the Shovel. Usually, leveling up will make more piñata species available to obtain and discover, and unlock new seeds for plants to be able to be planted.

The player's level can be checked by going into the menu.

Your gardening is improving! Well done! You just seem to get better and better.
