Starting today, FarmVille has started rolling out the FarmVille Spring Basket collection event! At this point not all farmers have access, but don’t worry you soon will.
Spring is in the air and FarmVille is celebrating! If you’ve been collecting Spring Flowers from your Spring Garden or from your FarmVille neighbors in preparation for the Spring Basket, you can finally put them to good use other than taking up room in your FarmVille Gift Box. This collection event works similar to other FarmVille collection events such as the St. Patrick’s Day Wishing Well.
You will be able to collect Flowers and redeem them for special exclusive prizes that you cannot get anywhere else! Read more below for all the details on how the Spring Basket works.
Every farmer will get their Spring Basket for free when you visit your farm for the first time after the update is available to you. You can choose to place your Spring Basket immediately or wait to a later time. If you choose the the latter, your Spring Basket will go directly to your FarmVille Gift Box for you to use another time.
Once the Spring Basket is on the farm you can click on it, then select “Look Inside” to see this window:
The Spring Basket works like many of our other item-gathering style events in FarmVille. You acquire Flowers through various methods, then “Use” them from your Gift Box to place them in your Spring Basket. As you accumulate these Flowers in the Spring Basket you can redeem them for exclusive items.
You can acquire Flowers by:
Harvesting your Spring Garden.
Requesting Flowers from your neighbors directly (by clicking on the “Ask for More” button).
Receive Flowers from a neighbor who uses the Free Gifts page (or click on “Send Flowers”).
Purchase 5 Flowers at a time by clicking on the “Buy Flowers” button (for 5 Farm Cash).
Click on a Spring Basket-related feed from a neighbor.
Harvest a neighbor’s Spring Garden.
Here are the five different types of Flowers (note they all count as the same when you put them in the Spring Garden)
As you put the Flowers in your Spring Basket you’ll see the meter on the left fill up. The physical look of the basket also changes as you fill it with wonderful, blooming Flowers.
You can also click on the “Comparison” tab to compare how many Flowers you’ve accumulated with your neighbors.
To get one of the special exclusive prizes, simply click on the “Redeem”
button next to the prize you want—if you have enough Flowers (the available amount of Flowers that is redeemable is at the top of the window, “You have X available to use!”) you’ll be asked to confirm the purchase.
If you hit “Accept” the prize will be stored in your Gift Box and you can share an extra prize with your friends.
