Modern Day - Day 30 is the thirtieth level of Modern Day in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It requires players to prevent the zombies from trampling the flowers, which are in the sixth column, positioned in the middle. Minecart and rail are present on the lawn as well, which is placed beside the flowers (on the fifth column). When this level is finished for the first time, the player receives a money bag.


With the position of the flowers being quite close to the lawn, Newspaper Zombie and All-Star Zombie with their fast speed, Wild West Gargantuar and Gargantuar Pirate which can easily destroy the player's defenses, including Prospector Zombies trampling the flowers from the end of the lawn if not countered properly. With all of them combined plus the objective, it will make the level very difficult. However, the player can place Primal Wall-nuts, Spikeweeds, Infi-nuts or Spikerocks over the flowers, which will not count as being trampled if they walk over either of the latter.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Primal Wall-nut is recommended for this level because of the Gargantuars, All-Star Zombies and its fast recharge.

At first, a Super-Fan Imp will appear which must be killed quickly, so do not let the following Balloon Zombies bother you as much, as they do not trample flowers whilst airborne. Start planting defensive plants on or in front of the flowers such as Chard Guards, or more essentially Primal Wall-nuts, as All-Stars will appear constantly, causing the player to lose the level quickly because of their fast speed.

Blover is also recommended because it can clear out Balloon Zombies, Imps, and even Prospector Zombies.

If boosts are used, it is recommended to use them on the Infi-nut, as its force field will be able to block Balloon Zombies, All-Stars Zombies and Super-Fan Imps.

  • Required plants:
  • The first phase (sequence above):
    • Plant Moonflower and Dusk Lobber in second lane to kill the Super-Fan Imp (use Gold Bloom to get sun)
    • Continue to plant Moonflowers and Dusk Lobbers (do it as soon as they available).
    • Ignore the Balloon Zombie till the very end and blow it away with Blover.
    • Plant two Primal Wall-nut to block the Newspaper Zombie. Stall him and the All-Star Zombie as long as you can. Then use Grimrose to kill them both.
  • The second phase (the first two Gargantuars):
    • Plant Lava Guava in the third lane to kill the charging All-Star Zombie.
    • Plant Primal Wall-nut in fifth and first lanes. Choose the right opportunities to plant Grimrose in these lanes to kill the zombies. If you time things right (all zombies are in the fixed lanes), Prospector Zombie will be killed before they jump over, and Newspaper Zombie will be killed before they cause trouble with their speed
    • Plant Primal Wall-nut and Lava Guava in third and fourth lanes to stall the Gargantuar, plant Dusk Lobber in these lanes to attack them. They only appear in these lanes, so prepare early and you can plant in the column of the flower as well.
    • Blow away the Balloon Zombie before they drop on the left side of the flower.
  • Last phase:
    • Anticipate where the Gargantuar will appear (fifth and first lanes) and plant Primal Wall-nut early to stall them. You will not be able to stall two of them at the same time as it will take longer to recharge
    • Be prepared with the All-Star Zombie in the third lane.

  • Tips:
  1. Keep saving Plant Food for Gargantuars and Newspaper Zombies.
  2. Always plant the Primal Wall-nuts on the flowers first, as there higher chances of Newspaper Zombies to run over them.
  3. Use Gold Bloom whenever it is ready.
  4. Keep replacing the Primal Wall-nuts, but do not neglect the other plants as well.
  5. Have fun!

Strategy 3

Created by Starman125

While setting up your Primal Sunflowers, plant an Infi-nut on one of the flower beds to stall out the Super-Fan Imp and protect the flowers. Don't worry if the Imp chews through the Infi-nut; its projector will be left behind, which can be safely walked over without the flowers underneath being trampled. Use Stallia to slow the Balloon Zombie that comes in early, then plant a Kernel-pult on the lane it's appproaching from. Plant a Rotobaga on the minecart to deal with the Balloon Zombie once it gets buttered; if necessary, plant an Infi-nut on the flowers in its lane. At this point, a Newspaper Zombie will come in; plant another Infi-nut on its lane, and once it gets buttered, plant a Celery Stalker behind it to kill it off.

Make sure you have full columns of Kernel-pults, Rotobagas, and Infi-nuts once the first wave starts. Your layout should look something like this:

P = Primal Sunflower
K = Kernel-pult
R = Rotobaga
I = Infi-nut
m = Minecart
r = Rail
f = Flowers
0 = Blank space

P - K - R - 0 - m(R) - f(I)
P - K - R - 0 - r - f(I)
P - K - R - 0 - r - f(I)
P - K - R - 0 - r - f(I)
P - K - R - 0 - r - f(I)

Use Grimrose to deal with the first All-Star Zombie that comes in, then use Stallia to slow down the three Balloon Zombies that come in. Be mindful of any other All-Star zombies that come in, as Grimrose and Stallia alike can deal with them before they destroy your Infi-nuts. Stallia can also deal with any Newspaper Zombies that breach your defenses, giving Rotobaga enough time to destroy them.

To deal with each of the Gargantuars that come in separately, wait until one gets buttered (use Stallia to buy some time if you must), plant a Celery Stalker behind it, and move the Rotobaga on the minecart within range of it. The Gargantuar will die before it has a chance to move again. For the two Gargantuars in the final wave, use Plant Food on one of your Kernel-pults, attack one of the Gargantuars, and use Stallia on the one you will attack next.
