This stage is fairly simple. Your biggest problem is the poncho zombies when they are metal plated. The metal protected ponchos have really high defense and take a long time to kill. The best and the most consistent way to kill them effectively is through your coconut cannons.

Setup your sunflower production while using a combination of wall-nut / spike weed, and iceberg lettuce + potato mine for the beginning waves. Then start to buff up your pea pod on the rail cart to handle middle waves.

Setup a line of wall-nut defense and place the coconut cannons behind to blast away any ponchos. With 5 cannon offense, you will most likely annihilate any incoming waves easily. However, do watch out for prospect zombie as you do not want them to sneak behind your defense.

The hardest part about this stage is that the sun spending limit prohibits you from using coconut cannons. Setup the regular sunflower production and slowly build out a kernel-pult, snapdragon, and spike weed defense. The defense is able to kill anything except prospector and poncho zombies. So you add a coconut cannon to the rail road cart, this coconut cannon will become your number 1 poncho and prospector killer.

The key to get through the stage is by timing your coconut cannon well, you should always aim to kill prospector zombies first because it takes poncho zombie longer to reach your center line defense.

Plants food drops pretty generously throughout the stage, so use them to help kill prospector zombies faster. If the prospector zombie does jump and land at the back of your defense, your only hope is to use plants food on the kernel-pult and hope that the hit can kill the prospector. Your goal is to always kill prospector before they jump.

Note: Aim your cannon hit to deal the most damage to the zombies, aim to kill both the poncho and prospector at the same time for maximum effect.

Star 3 Walkthrough Guide
The limit on this stage can be quite troublesome as you have really low defense to counter incoming zombies. First you want as much sun production as possible to afford a full defense system of coconut cannons. Ideally you want 5 across all lines plus 1 more on the rail road cart. To afford and save up for the coconut cannons, you should use iceberg lettuce + potato mine and chili bean to handle incoming waves.

Like the last stage, you want to kill prospector zombies as soon as they appear. If they do manage to get to the back of your defense line, place a split pea to kill them. You do not want to lose your coconut cannons.

Be very careful not to go over the plant limit and gradually take them out. Replace them with coconut cannons and wait for the final wave. When the final waves arrive, blast all of your cannons at them, use plant foods on the cannons if you must. But as you can see from our screen shot, we were able to pass the stage with full stash of plant foods.
