Melons, Gloom-shrooms, and Magnet-shrooms

1st round

Start with two columns of Sunflowers in the back and Puff-shrooms in fourth, fifth, and sixth columns. When you have enough sun, plant Snow Peas in the third column, replace Puff-shrooms with Fume-shrooms in the fourth and fifth columns, and upgrade the Sunflowers at the back to Twin Sunflowers. When there are Buckethead Zombies, plant Magnet-shrooms (which also helps for other zombies with metals later) in Pumpkins in the sixth columns. Remember to use Grave Busters to remove the graves.
