    The Flower Frenzy Event!
    (prepared by SW)

    Tips and Notes:
    *Starts: 03/12/2015 12PM PDT - Ends: 04/03/2015 12PM PDT
    *Available on android version 1.2.5.2g - the counter will only show if you are this version of the game.
    *New in Market: 60,000 coins for an iron fence door in the market under featured. (Tip: the metal gate fits with any wall ONLY if you have it facing SW on the kingdom board. Not sure if that makes sense, but if it doesn't fit with your walls, rotate it.) THIS WAS A BUG AND HAS BEEN FIXED...
    *The total number of tulips is updated as soon as the Tulips drop, not when they are collected.
    *If your dragon topiary changes spots, try putting in and out of storage.



    Where can I get tulips from?
    Crops: Corn, Wheat, Tomato, Sugar Cane, Hot Pepper, Strawberry, Carrot, Cabbage, Glimmerbulb, Cocoa, Fellora Plant
    Building: Conservatory
    Beasts: Skunkupine, Fangbeast, Glimmer Troll, Glimmer Golem, Dire Boar
    Flowers: Iceland Poppy Patch, Talinum Auranticum, White Trillium, Blue-Flower Penstemon, Rocket Larkspur, Red Trillium, Multi-Color Hedge, Faerie Flowerbed
    Castle Garden

    Help! The tulips aren't going into my inventory!
    You will find there is a counter on the top right of screen. All tulip counts go there. The flowers are not placed in your inventory.

    Help! I can't see the upgrade button?
    if you do not see the upgrade button, click somewhere else on the board and then click on the garden. The buttons should return. Force close if still not showing.

    Will the tulips drop even if the crop or flower is maxed out?
    YES! You'll also get the xp and coins (for crops) if you're maxed on both as normal.

    Best Drop Rates
    1. Conservatory - have as many as you can as they have a guaranteed drop of 2 per collection.
    2. Beasts - if you have the Troll Sparing Pit, collect from this as you'll always get a troll to fight. Make sure you clear off any other beasts first or a troll will not spawn.

    Materials for a Conservatory
    6 fancy beam, 6 fancy blocks, 4 super glue, 15 red petals
    *** You may need to sell other royal buildings if you want to build more conservatories! Maximum was reported at 15, but there have been further reports of players with more than 15, so it's possible.***
    Tip from player: 12 Conservatories. 2 hours per collection!! 9 Collections a day, 12 building giving 2 tulips each time for 22 days is 4752 tulips! 8 collections a day is still 4224! Even easier: 8 collections a day, 10 conservatories, 22 days is still 3520! Good luck...

    Does the level of your conservatory have any impact on the number of tulip drops?
    No, any level will drop 2 at each collection. All levels have a 2 hour collection.

    What to do with excess petals?
    build a conservatory, upgrade a conservatory, make dye, build a theatre (Link to Building Guide), make floral glow!

    Where do I get Gloves from?
    Castle Garden only

    Where do I get Clippers from?
    Castle Garden only

    My Dragon Topiary moves to Different Spots
    Try putting it in and out of storage

    Do gloves and clippers drop once I've upgraded the garden to L8?
    Yes! They will continue to drop until the event timer runs out.

This goal is basically your choice whether you complete it or not and won't affect any other progress in the event.

    So, if you'd rather use your milk elsewhere, that's fine. If you've already completed it, that's ok too. I haven't heard whether or not there are any additional goals this week either.

    Any unfinished goals will disappear when the event expires as is normal practice.

    In the second post, there is a list of flowers that do drop Tulips for the event. Please keep in mind that you won't receive Tulips from every collection. Here's a list of flowers that will drop Tulips:

    Flowers: Iceland Poppy Patch, Talinum Auranticum, White Trillium, Blue-Flower Penstemon, Rocket Larkspur, Red Trillium, Multi-Color Hedge, Faerie Flowerbed

    The Castle Gardens will drop Coins and XP after the event is over. Also, we have forwarded your feedback on having more items that drop items instead of decorations.

    We took your feedback and have added additional items to drop from the level 7 and level 8 Castle Garden. These items will drop during the remainder of the event and also will continue to drop after the event is over. Hopefully, this will encourage you to keep your Castle Garden in your Kingdom even after the event is over!


    20 March: The descriptions behind the items has been fixed. This post is in relation to this from TL:

    We've had feet and feet of snow where I live and I am so ready for flowers!

    My game is not loading any new goals or info or anything. I tried harvesting a few crops and nothing happened either. My game is updated and restarted. How do we trigger the event?

    Is the castle garden something we will be able to buy or earn during this event?. If not, excuse my ignorance, but what is it and where is it?!!
