BW2: Spring Garden Event 2022! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Flowers In Bloom!

The annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden. Impress the judges every 20 hours to earn Spring tokens to buy this year’s Custom Items. You need to impress the previous judge to get a rating from the next one.

Plus, fill your magnificent garden with critters! There are 5 to get throughout the event, starting with the Squirrel today! You can send out requests for a free one.

Many Quests!

George has such a terrible green thumb, he’ll be looking for you to help him out trying to grow a plant for the first (or fourth) time.

Spring usually means spring cleaning, right? Freddy needs some help cleaning up his house. It’s gotten a little bit spooky. Cleaning items can only be whacked in his house.

Timmy wants to wake his turtle up from its hibernation after that long, cold winter. Aid him in finding things to tempt it back to consciousness.

Have too many seeds? There are things you can spend them on:
- 10 Fertilizer, once daily
- The Spring Gift Bouquet, once daily (alternatively to buying for Spring Tokens)
- Reseting the cooldown on the critic's judging of your garden

For players level 400+, Farmer McDonald will reward you with Tier 2 Spring Fruit and Spring Vegetable seeds! These crops will yield energy and gold balanced for your higher level.

Gorgeous Garden Contest

Returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest, where each Bush Whacker submits a screenshot of their garden for all to judge! Check back next week for more details.

New for 2022

If you can complete the event, you'll earn the Spring Garden Box!

More Bees!

Joel has three new species of bees for you to choose from after you complete his bee helping quests! They are the Blue Banded Bee, Neon Cuckoo Bee, and Green Carpenter Bee.

More Decorations!

Two new growable decorations have been added: the Orange Rose and White Sunflower! Plant seeds for these in your garden boxes in the event area. These can also be bought permanently from Joel at the left of the event area.

Nine new garden items can be bought for seeds: - Blue Watering Can
- Garden Fence
- Birdhouse
- Blue Birdhouse
- Heart Birdhouse
- Greenhouse
- Bee Box
- Beehive
- Stone Pond

Faster Judging!

Similar to the Halloween event, you can now spend Seeds or Bush Bucks to instantly allow the critics judge your garden, instead of waiting the full cooldown.

And finally, the critics will instantly give you their tokens if you've earned enough spring points! Each critic has a different threshold of spring points you must have before they'll do this.

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of TWENTY TWO possible achievements to earn in the Spring Garden 2022 event.

Achievements Returning for 2022

Flower Master- You’ve grown 1 of each common plant in the Spring Event!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the seeds?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy 6! 

Unrelenting alien plants return, and it's up to the Gardeners of the Galaxy to stop them. It's time for a new strategy. You've fought plants with fungus, but what about fighting plants with other plants?

This year Viragallant, the Alluring joins the garden.

Gardeners of the Galaxy 6 has begun!

New Tier 6 Crusader: Viragallant, the Alluring

Tags: Event, Male, Female, Flora, Support, Good


Wandering around on a lush green planet they'd thought looked perfect for a picnic, the Crusaders find themselves hoping that rustling is just the wind. Every so often, with no breeze to speak of, the vegetation shivers and rustles. Nate being Nate, wanders a bit further from the group and falls into a hidden pit. The rustling almost seems agitated as the other Crusaders manage to rescue him.

However, when Merci casts Alchemy to heal Nate, they glimpse a white bloom open slightly and the rustling seems to calm down, as well as healing Nate better than normal. Bat Billionaire and Polly also cast Alchemy and the white bloom opens fully to reveal a face. The being steps out from the vegetation it had been hiding in, and motions for the group to follow them.

It leads the Crusaders to the portal off the world. As Merci is about to go through, the being tugs his sleeve and nods toward the portal, a shy, questioning look on their face. Merci nods at them, and the Alluring Viragallant steps through the portal to join the team.


Viragallant, the Alluring is a Support Crusader. When you want to add them to your formation, you can find them in slot 35.

New Tier 6 Objectives

  • Viragallant, the Alluring | Viragallant, the Alluring takes up a slot in the formation. Broot and Robbie Raccoon take up spots in formation and can't be moved. Only Robbie does DPS. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 600.

  • Gramma's Best Boy | Spaceking and Grandmora take up spots in formation and can't be moved. Only Spaceking does DPS. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 650.

  • Farmer Wrestling | Rex the Wrestler takes up a spot in formation and can't be moved. The formation has been changed. Every area quest is changed to killing the farmer monster. Note: This will require having cleared the objective To Infinity and Beyond on Ghostbeard's Greed to complete. Reach area 675.

  • Mushroom to Meet You | Mycall the Mushroom takes up a spot in formation and can't be moved. Mushroom monsters spawn, each with an annoying ability. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Reach area 700.

  • Healing Powers | Drosenthes takes up a spot in formation and can't be moved. Viragallant, the Alluring takes up a slot in the formation. You can only do DPS while Alchemy is active. Note: This will require having cleared the objective Bullet Hell on Ready Player Two to complete. Reach area 725.

More info

You'll have until Tuesday, May 18th at 12:00 PM Pacific Time to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy 6!

For more info on previous Gardeners of the Galaxy Crusaders and objectives check out the Gardeners of the Galaxy 5 blog post.

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardener's Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, Tier 5, and Tier 6 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

BW2: 2020 Gorgeous Garden Photo Contest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

The Gorgeous Garden Contest is now underway!

We want to see YOUR talented, artistic skills at gardening/art. It's super easy to get started, just start growing plants. When you've got enough, you can begin to lay out your designs in the event area. Once you've managed to get at least a D from each of the judges, you're golden for entering the contest!

How the Contest Works

When you're ready, talk to the photographer (he's got a yellow ! above his head) and have him take a picture of your fantasy garden. You can submit as many times as you would like, but only your most recent submission will get the votes. Each time you do submit a screenshot, your votes will reset to make it fair for everyone, so plan carefully! Submissions will be accepted until *Friday, May 22nd, 2020, - Noon PDT.*

You Get to Vote!

YOU get to vote too! The coveted 'User's Choice' award is picked by the Bush Whacker Community, and has a prize of 50 Bush Bucks! You can vote for as many submissions as you like, and at the end of the event the top submission as voted by YOU the players will be awarded the prize.

Notes about Voting!
  • Asking to visit the contest or the voting page no longer takes you outside the game; it simply loads the contest/voting page over top it! Finished voting? You can easily return to the event area by clicking "Back to Game" at the bottom of the screen. Easy as pie!

  • Can't decide between two layouts? That’s ok! You now have a way to say "Next Please," and two new images will be loaded up for you!

  • Tired of seeing the same layouts previously? We've improved the system, you should see the same layouts repeated far more infrequently now.

You can vote until *Friday, May 22, 2020 @ Noon PDT.*

And the CNE winners are...

At the end of the event, the entire Codename Entertainment Studio will review the submissions and choose their favourites, with 3 lucky players per platform being awarded prizes of 250, 200, and 150 Bush Bucks for first, second and third. All winners will be published in the blog when we've made our decision.

Post questions and comments here!

    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy 5! 

Unrelenting alien plants return, and it's up to the Gardeners of the Galaxy to stop them. It's time for a new strategy. You've fought plants with fungus, but what about fighting plants with other plants?

Enter Drosenthes, a new Crusader bringing the power of photosynthesis to your formation!

Gardeners of the Galaxy 5 runs until Tuesday, May 12th at 12PM PDT, introducing Drosenthes and bringing back Mycall the Mushroom, Rex the Wrestler, Grandmora, Spaceking, Broot, and Robbie Raccoon!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Drosenthes

Growing... consuming... Drosenthes has germinated in the beyond and brings with it a unique symbiotic relationship for the Crusaders in your formation.

Slow Digestion grants a charge for every 5 monsters killed, stacking up to 10. Once per second, if any Crusader is below 50% health, Slow Digestion consumes one stack to heal all Crusaders for 50% of their total health. This pairs with Induced Bioluminescence, which damages human and animal Crusaders for 10% of their maximum health each second while at the same time increasing Global DPS for every human and animal Crusader, stacking multiplicatively.

Drostenthes offers unique utility to your formation:
  • Endless Hunger spawns an additional monsters based on the number of monsters killed and Drosenthes' equipment.
  • Photosynthesis increases DPS for every 25 levels over and including 200.
  • Patient Hunter increases the drop rate of Quest Items.
  • Cosmic Botany increases the DPS from Induced Bioluminescence for each Flora Crusader in the formation.
  • Entomophage helps your formation to grow, boosting Global DPS.
Life, death, rebirth. Devour or be devoured. The cycle of life is embodied in no other Crusader the way it is in Drosenthes.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Drosenthes | Drosenthes starts in the formation. Monsters spawn slower. Monsters are much tougher. Monsters move across the screen slower.
    Reach area 400.

  • Gardeners, Grow! | Talent effects are disabled. Only Gardeners of the Galaxy Crusaders can be used. Grandmora starts in the formation.
    Reach area 450.

  • Planet Bulk | Special bulk monsters spawn, and randomly disable one Crusader in your formation while the bulk monster is alive.
    Reach area 475.

  • Willowy Willows | Only Flora and Dragon Crusaders, plus Slot 1 Crusaders, can be used. Special Willow tree monsters spawn, with random effects.
    Reach area 500.

  • Hard Labor | Area difficulty increases rapidly. Crusaders take 10% of their max HP as damage for each monster killed in an area. Crusaders in the center column of the formation have their DPS and formation abilities disabled.
    Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardeners Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available Gardeners of the Galaxy Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Gardeners of the Galaxy 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, May 12th at 12:00PM PDT to complete Gardeners of the Galaxy 5.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 4 

The fourth installment and third sequel to Gardeners of the Galaxy is here — and you know what they say about sequels to sequels to sequels: it's time to change things up! Usually this is the point in the franchise where you take things to space, but since we're already here it's time to fight plants with fungus!

The latest addition to the Gardeners of the Galaxy is Mycall the Mushroom, and they are here to boost your formation with the power of fungus! Breathe in some of these spores and you'll have more than enough firepower to take down even the most colossal of evil plants! GARDENERS, ASSEMBLE!

Gardeners of the Galaxy Vol. 4 introduces Mycall the Mushroom and brings back Robbie Raccoon, Broot, Spaceking, Grandmora, and Rex the Wrestler! The party ends on Tuesday, June 11th, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Mycall the Mushroom

Fungi may be categorically gross on average, but this frenzied fungus is one you'll want propagating in your formation!

Mycall the Mushroom is a Support Crusader who uses spores that heal Crusaders with their Herbal Healing capabilities, and has a tendency to Grow in the Dark, buffing your formation. In fact, most of Mycall's abilities buff the formation one way or another - they excel at boosting their allies! Mycall has Fungal Frenzy and Mushroom Soup for improving Global DPS, Propagation for boosting adjacent Crusaders based on how many Formation Abilities are targeting Mycall, Germination to increase the DPS of all Crusaders based on the number of EP in the formation, and, well, you get the idea...

Spores = Good! We are Broot.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Robbie Raccoon, Broot, Spaceking, Grandmora, and Rex the Wrestler are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Mycall the Mushroom | Mycall the Mushroom takes up a slot in the formation. If he dies, you have to restart the Area. Reach area 600.

  • SuperGRO | All plant monsters are stronger and have a ranged attack. Reach area 700.

  • Sprinkled | A sprinkler goes back and forth over the formation. Crusaders in the affected columns lose their DPS. Reach area 750.

  • Capped Out | Only Crusaders with Legendary items have DPS and their formation abilities active. Reach area 800.

  • Down and Dirty | Mounds of dirt take over the formation slowly. Each mound of dirt increases the global DPS for each Flora Crusader in formation. Reach area 850.

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardeners Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.
