Double Gardening Rewards

Mar 14, 2011
I believe we should get more time to be able to plant and harvest our plants. I mean seriously, only three days (72) hours to plant, then check on them , then finally harvest. We should be getting a minimum of 5 days to be able to get these rewards.

Thanks for your time,

Kingsisle, Thank you very much for the Gardening Reward. I don't care if it is two hours long or seventy-two hours it is a great gift for us Gardeners.
Thank you!

I believe it was 4 days (96 hours), but regardless, I strongly agree.

I, by chance, planted Couch Potatoes the night before the gardening rewards began, and as they haven't yet made it half way to elder (with 5 likes surrounding them!!), I doubt I'll be able to get the benefit of the double rewards for the final harvest (and thus get the much coveted double seeds).

Thus, only those fortunate enough to have plants already well on their way to elder when the double gardening rewards begin (with no advance notice that I saw) can take full advantage of it.

I'm sorry, KingsIsle, but I think you should do better. Either make it longer or give a few days advanced notice so that people can get their plants in.

Otherwise, it's rather demoralizing if you're not one of the "lucky" ones (especially when I spent 4 hours the night before to get 4 measly seeds).

And demoralized players may decide to stop their memberships for a while, whereas, with advance notice, non-members might just decide to become members in time so that they can take advantage of double gardening rewards.

Sounds like simple economics to me.

YES you are right, please give us more time i never participated in member benefits till now and found out its only a few days like what??? how can i extend my garden for more snacks :(

I can understand your disappointment. I harvested an elder Couch Potato thirty minutes before the notice appeared that it was bonus time. Never the less I would rather have a no notice gift than none at all. I returned to my garden and planted plants that I knew would grow fast. I may not get many elders but I am getting the bonus.

I guess I am a planter half full kind of gardener.

Thank you KI for giving us the world so we can complain that it's spinning in the wrong direction!!!
