While the English present perfect is often translated into the simple past in Irish, there's no obvious reason for not translating the Irish simple past into the English simple past, so probably it's just the case that nobody has ever considered it necessary to request the addition of a present perfect translation of this exercise.

Translating from English to Irish, tâ an gairdín tar éis fás go mall would be a better translation of "the garden has grown slowly", in my opinion.
