1.4.50 for Apple / 1.3.2A for Android) added a shrub fertilizer to the game. Once it has been purchased for 4.49 EUR (or the equivalent in other currencies) from the build menu and placed in the village it will not only double the amount of XP (and Coins) given out by the Magic Shrubs but also reduce their harvest time to half.
The Shrub fertilizer works in every area that has magic shrubs, that is in the mainland and the mountain. It also works on the newly added magic shrubs in space.
This bonus is given on top of all other bonuses, that is it works in cooperation with the XP Accelerator, so if that is placed in the village 10% (5% of the not upgraded Accelerator) of the complete amount the shrubs give out (including the bonus from the fertilizer) will be given when collecting it.

His moon buggy is available for 25 Smurfberries and requires Farmer Smurf to be placed in the mainland. It works just as his tractor on either the island or mountain and allows the harvest of multiple crops at the same time.
If Farmer Smurf on the mainland has been upgraded to include the Plant All feature it will also automatically be available for his moon buggy. Read More→
The Tractor is available for 25 Smurfberries and, just like Farmer Smurf’s hut on the mainland, it increases the XP and Coin revenue of crops that are placed close to it.
Once the Tractor has been placed, the Harvest All feature is immediately available. To also get the Plant All feature, the tractor has to be upgraded for another 10 Smurfberries. To do that, simply tap on the tractor and choose “Upgrade”.
Using the features of the tractor works just as on the mainland, tapping the tractor opens a window, which lets the player choose between “Harvest All” and “Plant All”. The numbers for the plant all feature are totals for the total amount of crops that will be planted.
Although a smurf will come and sit on the tractor when it is tapped, it is not necessary to have a free smurf available to use it.
1.2.1 on iOS) it is now possible to grow fruits on the island, similar to growing fruits on the mainland.
The fruits are grown on the palm trees. From version 1.2.4 (iOS) and 1.1.2a (Android) onwards it is now possible to move, delete and buy palm tress.
To move a palm tree, simply go into move mode and click on the base of the tree. This will not work if a fruit is currently being grown on it. The palm trees have a “soft” move field, meaning the move field and the space required to place them is rather large while moving it, but afterwards other items (like flowers, other palm trees, etc.) can be placed close to the base of the tree and are not limited by the space the palm required for placing it.
These trees can, unlike the shrubs on the mainland, not be bought from the shop nor moved. That means there is only a limited number of palms available that can be used for growing them. At the moment the maximum number is of available palm trees is nine (with all island land expansions).
To grow a fruit, simply tap on the base of the palm tree and just like with the normal crops a menu will pop open with all available crops.
There are two ways to get the seeds for the fruits unlocked, either by buying “Wild Smurf” for 30 Smurfberries and placing his hut on the island or by getting the seeds as gifts from friends/neighbours.
Just as with the flower seeds, once a seed has been given or Wild Smurf has been bought, giving that seed as a gift to the neighbour once again does not do anything.
The following fruits are available at the moment:
Banana (requires Wild Smurf)
24 hours 390 180 72 108
24 hours 287 113 63 50
12 hours 182 74 41 33
18 hours 236 94 52 42
36 hours 366 158 99 59
With Wild Smurf it is also possible to use “Harvest All” and “Plant All” on the fruits, for more information see the article on “Wild Smurf”.
A friend/neighbour can once per day help out on one palm tree by clicking on the watering sign. This will increase the value of the fruit. If a friend has helped out on the tree a sign will appear above the tree (see picture on the right side).
A function that many fans of the game have been asking for was added in version 1.1.2 of the app. It is now possible to upgrade Farmer Smurfs hut so that on top of his “Harvest All” function it is also possible to plant a specific crop on all available fields with one click. Like the “Harvest All” feature this can save you a lot of time if you have many gardens in your village.
To enable this function Farmer’s Hut has to be upgraded for 15 Smurfberries, just tap on his house and then on the “Upgrade” button in the window that pops up on the right side. As soon as the upgrade is completed this function can be used and Farmer’s Hut gets a black weather station on top of his thatched roof as a visualisation of that upgrade.
To use this feature, just tap on the house and click on the “Plant All Crops” button. A sidebar with all the available crops will appear. The numbers shown there (i.e. the price, the number of XP and Coins gained) are accumulated, that means they are the totals for all the crops that will be planted by tapping on them, not just for the one individual crop that is shown in the normal mode.
If this function is used, the chosen crop will be planted on every garden and the number of crops is only limited by the amount of available Smurfs and free gardens.
