None of the berries in my Emerald ROM will grow. I figure it has to do with something physical in the cartridge, for lack of being a cartridge anyway.
As per my knowledge, other time based events don't work either, however, my clock DOES. Is there a patch or anything else I can use to return time-based events to working order. I've already activated the 'Realtime Clock' option on my VBA, and the GBATA program wouldn't even acknowledge my Emerald needs patching.

You could try a few things, in order to fix the problem:
- Test functionality of the In-Game clock in other games, like Ruby/Sapphire
- Disable and Re-enable the Real-Time-Clock of VBA
- Download a new Emerald ROM from a different source

I have not come accross a Clock-Fix Patch for Emerald yet, but since everything is working fine for me, it is possible that your ROM is corrupted.

The way I get over this bug is to get a Japanese version of the ROM (Which the clock always works fine), and then import the English version save file to the Japanese version. Save again in the Japanese version and at last import the save file back to your English ROM. That way the clock runs fine.
