A new gameplay feature was also added in relation to the use of unwithers. If you do not purchase any unwithers, but you visit a neighbour who has an inactive account (in which their crops have been left withered for more than 30 days), you may be prompted to unwither their farm at no charge. This sends the owner the notification:
|Player just revived your crops and made your farm pretty for you to see! [X hours ago] Check out your crops! (links to their farm)|
Natural Unwithers Edit
On 4th March 2010, FarmVille installed Natural Unwithers. This feature will naturally unwither a farmer's crops if they have been away from their farm for 14 days. On 23 February 2010, FarmVille enabled Unwithers for all farmers due to out of sync issues and gifts.
