I had this built years ago and can see no use for it- I can't plant flowers inside that live more than a day for example.

You know the fence I mean: It kind of looks like the dump from the GameCube AC. Is there a use for this or should I tear it down?

I've seen posts/pics of how players use it - free items that visitors can pick up/catalog, & indeed as a sort of dump.

You could use it for trying say for blue roses - ie plant 2 hybrid reds in there - room for a fertiliser as well. I'm fairly sure villagers won't plant flowers in there (hence its use for isolating hybrid reds) tho they can and do enter and can plant flowers (apparently) at the entrance.
I used it for a while trying for blue roses, I wasn't 100% sure villagers wouldn't plant a flower in there - tho they never did with me, I lked that the fence made a clear boundary.

But its confining (for hybrid breeding), took up space & a bit ugly, so took it out. Flowers lived fine in it for me, I watered every day (I didn't have beautiful ordinance on).

found a few more ideas in this thread - hadn't though of using it as a way of trapping villagers.

See it's weird because I planted two starter bushes in there and the next day they were gone.

So only regular flower seeds can be planted within?

Yeah, only flowers can be planted in there. That's because flowers can be walked over and thus cannot block the entrance.

Any bush in there will not grow because they can't be placed next to an obstruction (like a rock, building or fence rail). There's not enough space inside the fence to plant a bush that would have at least 1 clear space on every side of it.
Slainte! Cead mile failte!

You can also bury excess items there, I guess. I forgot what I did with mine
Mods calling posts "misleading" is the new "trolling" (and still lies).
If they ban me, you can find me at u/Gargomon251
