Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Guides

Jingle’s Holly Jolly Roundup Gardening Event Guide

The Jingle’s Holly Jolly Roundup gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android, running from from November 29th to December 9th. Learn how to grow event Poinsettia flowers, catch Elf Hat creatures, and get the full holiday gardening set in our complete guide!

Plant and Grow Poinsettias to Catch Elf Hats

Jingle will speak with you the first time you approach your garden, sharing some of your very first Poinsettia seeds for free. With your new seeds, just tap on empty dirt plots in your garden to plant and water them. When the timer on a plant ends, the Poinsettia will bloom!

When Poinsettias bloom during Jingle’s Holly Jolly Roundup, there’s a random chance of a Elf Hat creature spawning on top of the plant. Once a creature is ready and waiting, you’ll have to tap on it to attempt a catch. Then when attempting a catch, there’s another random chance of the catch failing. If you do successfully catch a creature, it will be added to your event task counts for special rewards!

The corresponding Poinsettia flower and Elf Hat creature matches are as follows:

  • White Poinsettias spawn Red Elf Hats
  • Red Poinsettias spawn Yellow Elf Hats
  • Blue Poinsettias spawn Green Jingling Elf Hats and White Jingling Elf Hats

To get an idea of your chances of spawning and catching creatures, see the table below for a summary of the rates for this event:

Don’t Forget to Share Your Elf Hats

The essential key to successfully completing a gardening event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is making full use of the sharing features! Due to recent changes made to spawn and catch rates, it’s even more important than before.

Whenever you have Elf Hats in your inventory after catching them, make sure to share them with friends! Just open your friends list, visit their garden, and place your creatures on any grown Poinsettias they have sitting there. After you share, you’ll receive Poinsettia seeds to help you grow more.

It’s important to know that sharing creatures never negatively effects your personal task counts and rewards — there’s absolutely no reason not to share, you can only benefit! Always share as much as possible to help yourself get more seeds, while helping your friends progress in their own tasks. If you can share creatures back and forth with a buddy, you’ll make great progress!

Trade in Flowers for Potted Poinsettias, Seeds, Flower Food, and Duplicates

When you’ve harvested lots of Poinsettias to make room for growing more, don’t forget to trade them in to Lloid the Gyroid to get the full benefits from your hard work during this event. In terms of furniture, you can exchange your flowers in for potted versions of each plant for 20 matching Poinsettias each.

Flower food is available too if you’re looking to speed up future growth of flowers. And if you want extra duplicates of some items, you can get those here too. Most importantly though, you can trade up lower quality Poinsettias into higher quality Poinsettia seeds!
