Jardinero is a character in Viva Pinata. He was the original owner of the garden and the best. Jardiniero lives a house nearby the garden. Every few levels, he gives players an upgraded shovel and a title upgrade. He has 4 children: Stardos (it is heavily implied that he is now Dastardos), Leafos, Storkos, and Sidos (now Seedos). Jardinero was a great gardener; however, he was separated from his wife (referred to as Mother) in a shipwreck on a search for information on how to obtain a Dragonache. He is wheelchair-bound because of an injury obtained in the same crash. Players can read more about Jardinero and his great garden in the Journal; new chapters can be obtained from Leafos after leveling-up.
