    To be used along side the excellent guide made by xPut Name Herex

    This guide offers an alternate method for gaining money, I was made aware of this guide while playing the console game and the guide is made on a PC but works across all platforms (I done it many times on console and WP7)

    As the video shows the level is last stand which is the 15th mini-game

    If you die, you keep the money you've earned so don't worry too much if you haven't already got all the upgrades needed to make the perfect set-up, just keep getting as far as possible until you can afford what is needed

    Note: To make the purple circle puff-shrooms an upgrade needs to be bought from the shop which costs 7,500 so try and buy this as early as possible

    Credit to portigoal11 for making the video
    Credit to II TITCH II for the console solution related to gaining money:

    QPRs No1 FanHa. Brilliant strategy although I only seem to be getting 5K-6K before getting overrun but nevertheless it's the fastest way to make coins in my opinion.

    Subliminal CutsYeah I never had enough money for a few of the plants so for my first 5-6 runs I was only getting 2k but soon enough I could buy the upgrades. Keep at it you'll be fine. Actually a month old comment I'm sure you're long done by now laugh

    This achievement will require you to get past Level 5-8 in Adventure Mode to unlock the Melon-pult. For the remaining plants, you will need to spend $98,000 in Crazy Dave's shop. This includes the green-tiled Imitator for $30,000. It does not include the $2,000 Wall-nut First Aid.

    You will get money by playing through the Adventure and the Mini-games, but a much more efficient way is to use your Zen Garden, unlocked after beating Level 5-4. The plants in the Zen Garden can be watered and fertilized for coins and diamonds. They have four stages, seedlings, small plant, medium plant, and large plant. Transitioning between stages requires you to water and fertilize the plant, and you will get an extra reward when they do so (a gold coin, two gold coins, and either one or two diamonds respectively). A seedling can immediately be watered and fertilized, and can be re-watered and fertilized 30 minutes (real-time) later). A fully matured plant can be sold, $3,000 for a Marigold and $8,000 for the rest. You can also keep matured plants and use the bug spray and phonographs to make them happy, causing them to randomly drop diamonds, but I found it easier to raise money by selling them.

    Plants can be earned in numerous ways. They can be dropped as presents while playing the game. On the second play-through of the Adventure Mode, you will be given a plant (occasionally two) at least every 10 levels. Vasebreaker Endless will also give you a Moneybag, Diamond, or Present every 10 levels and I, Zombie Endless will give you one of the those three items every three levels (does not always occur, but most of the time it does). Plants can also be bought from the Shop for $2,500 (up to three a day), netting you at least a $500 profit without including the coins and diamonds awarded for raising the plant.

    Anything else you used to help get money, feel free to leave a comment and I'll add it to the solution!

    PerpetualMindG8Great guide, but the whole plant growth cycle happens after an hour not a half-hour. =P
