    Money can be earned in many ways in PvZ. Minigames, Co-op Bowling, Adventure mode (Drops + end of level bonuses), the Zen Garden and more.

    The shop unlocks shortly into Adventure mode, and by the end you should be getting close to obtaining this if you haven't already

    To unlock this achievement spend a cumulative total of $25,000 on anything from Crazy Daves' trunk (This includes the slots for extra plants).
    Your achievement should unlock as soon as you make the purchase to take you over.

    MuscularTeaShop unlocks midway through pool levels so 3-4 I think just before the mini zombie game I think.

    You CAN just play your favourite modes and eventually you'll get $25,000, however there's a faster way.
    Play adventure mode until Crazy Dave unlocks his Trunk (Boot) at which point you won't be able to buy very much but fear not. Keep playing adventure mode until you unlock the Zen Garden. After that play around in other modes like puzzles and survival modes you'll occasionally unlock brightly coloured Presents, collecting them will award you with plants for your Zen garden.
    At first buy marigold plants and fertiliser to improve your garden, now after only two visits to your garden you can sell your plants for $8,000 grand each.
    *Note this is also the quickest way to grow your Tree of Wisdom to 100ft.

    Pedle ZelnipI found your solution misleading, Marigolds do not sell for $8, but rather $5k when fully mature. Honestly, I found it not worth buying any plants, as by the time you factor in time + cost of fertilizer + cost of plant, the profit margin just isn't worth the time it takes. Instead I only fertilized & sold plants I got while playing Last Stand, which is essentially free (save the cost of fertilizer), and gave a much bigger payback ($8K).

    They were 8k when I did this mate, I wonder if a patch has altered the price, I'll look into it. Also don't forget that Marigolds periodically produce money that you can collect.

    This can be earned quickly after you complete the game. If you use the marigold plant on the early levels in between your sunflowers (which you can upgrade with twin sunflower so you need less). The marigold spits out gold and silver coins (and once I had a few it was doing emeralds so I think they accumulate).
