I've seen lots of peeps asking how to place flowerbeds at the base of thier trees. It's quite simple to do. Here's how:

First place your tree.

Next, select a flowerbed you want to use and place it on the same tile. (It will show up red.)

Hold the <shift> key. The flower bed will turn blue and jump above the tree. The tile at the base of the tree will turn blue.

Finally, click the mouse button to place the flowerbed. It'll drop right in at the base of the tree. :)

you might add to say, that this also works on paths or flatride-undergrounds or other scenerie-objects ...

This also works with the new Roses flowerbed in Soaked.

However.. I've noticed with the Roses, when you zoom out enough, you can see the roses above the tree where you placed them. Not good!

How to fix it? Practically the same way as described above, except instead of shifting the flowers above the tree, shift and drop them BELOW tree level. They will appear at ground level just as they should, but they won't "magically appear" when you zoom out.
