The nature-loving sloth Leif has now begun to visit islands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons thanks to the version 1.2.0 update. The garden-enthusiast, pro-weed pulling NPC’s role in this Animal Crossing adventure is being a traveling shopkeeper. Similar to Label and Kicks, Leif will visit your island randomly and offer the following items and services: shrubs, flower seeds, and buying weeds.
Items sold at Leif’s Garden Shop
Leif will offer two different kinds of shrub starters and their color options priced at 280 Bells each. The first set will be a shrub that is in season, whereas the other one may not be. Note: When referring to shrubs as “in season,” this means that the flowers are in bloom. Two different flower types will also be available for sale as seeds in their three base colors (red, yellow, white OR red, orange, white). These flowers will be considered “rare” on your island, meaning that they were not sold at Nook’s Cranny and/or discovered on an Island Mystery Tour.
All items can be bought in increments of one or in bundles of five.

Selling weeds to Leif
Leif’s habit of pulling weeds carries over differently in New Horizons. Since the pesky plants are now an item, they can be used to craft items or sold for 10 Bells each. In order to promote a beautiful weed-free island, Leif will pay 20 Bells per pulled weed.
