I started playing because my mother in law sent me a pink ribbon plant. At first I was like what?  But then got suckered in by all the cute critters!!
When I started, you could only water every 15mins and Griffins were the thing everyone was fighting over.
Just an FYI my mother in law doesnt play anymore lol :)

I started to play just after the gardens were introduced.  A friend of mine asked if I fancied a fairy garden, and I thought I'd give it a go.

It was called My Fairy at the time, and there was no wildlife, just the fairies and the gardens.  We could make wishes, play the magical mushrooms game for diamonds, cast spells, and send standard dusts on our friends.  You had to unlock the ability to send the dusts and cast spells by collecting diamonds.  We could also play Alchemy and Herbalism.

There was a leader board for the most blue diamonds earned, but since we could only earn them by playing the magical mushrooms game nobody earned very many each day.  Your garden was private when you started it, and you could only make it public by earning 50 diamonds (it took AGES!).  If you let your diamond total drop below 50, your garden became automatically private again.

We had to maintain our "wilt balance", to allow us to use all the spaces in the garden - there were only 5 spaces maximum, if I remember correctly, and if your wilt balance dropped you lost one or more spaces, depending on how low you let your balance drop.  It was on a rolling seven day basis, so if you revived loads of plants on day one but then none for the rest of the week, your balance would drop.  Your wilt balance was worked out based on how many times other players had to revive wilting plants in your own garden, and how many times you revived wilting plants in other gardens.

We had to grow loads more plants to level up than players do now, and there was no way to speed up the growth or change the colours to begin with; we just had to keep regrowing.   Things like the bonsais took over a month to become RTH without dusting!

When we were eventually able to use gold dust to change the colours the order wasn't predictable - it took me over 200 gold just to change my last one to violet and took weeks (there was just the daily gold to collect, and it was only a few gold per day).

(but there are older players than me, who will remember there just being fairies - all they could do was collect diamonds, and visit their friends to cast spells/sprinkle standard dusts!).

Wow!! Its amazing how much this game has evolved over time. And how many loyal players there are.
I remember being able to diamond dust other people's plants, and having few garden set ups ruined by helpful fairies lol. I remember actually settling in for a water fight for a unicorn,  incessantly clicking on a plant until time clicked over hoping your click was the lucky one. I remember the long wait for the purpose of "mystery seeds".

Yes the albino madness to get the mystery seeds.... I loved the albinos and the (powder puff ) albino hedgehog is still one of my favourites

I was here before the Gardens! My fairy Vienna is 9 years and 2 months old so I must have added the app in 2008, joining a friend or two who were playing. I'm sure I got a Garden on the day they were released. I remember all the excitement of having the new features introduced and the race to enjoy them.

Wildlife plus the ability to visit and Gold Dust others are my favourite features. The game revolves around gifting for me, it's what makes me happy.

I've played a ton of apps and this is the only one that has stood the test of time. The owner is 100% to thank for this because what happened to the other apps is they were sold out to big companies and literally monetised to their death. Fairyland has kept its heart and I'm happy to support it.

I started 9 years and 5 months ago, I support FairyLand as it and the support staff and the many friends I made supported me through 4 relapses of cancer, everyone helped me focus on something happy and helped me feel cared about and supported, and every time I ran into a problem the staff were there to help.   I LOVE FairyLand and will continue to support and play in the gardens as long as I am able.

Started about 2 months after Tracey ( just checked ) but I think the name was Fairyland. This must have been just before Christmas. Other players had Christmas Trees.

Remember a lot of the things Tracey mentions. It was really hard for me to level up in the beginning, and several "older" fairies gave me advice.

Agree Lydia, it's always good to have Fairyland when you need to keep your mind off all the different dark sides of Real Life. One comes every year here in Scandinavia, that's Winter....

I started right after Tracey as well -- I remember when the first wildlife was introduced -- it took 5 days to clear a plate!  That first field mouse popping up was magic to us!
