Seeds are items that members use to grow crops with the Farming skill.

Notes: Growth times given here are minimum times. Disease occurs at the end of a growth cycle and prevents advancement to the next cycle, essentially causing the cycle to be repeated. Occasionally cycles can be repeated, anyway, without the incidence of disease. Using compost or supercompost reduces the occurrence of repeated cycles, whether through disease or at random, helping to ensure the speediest growth.

Acquiring seedsEdit

The following are several ways to get the seeds needed for farming:

  • Seeds can be bought from other players.
  • Picking a vegetable from one of the non-player-owned fields dotted around RuneScape occasionally provides a seed as well.
  • Pickpocketing farmers with level 10 Thieving, which will occasionally give potato seeds.
  • On populated worlds it is easy to get large amounts of lower level seeds from players training thieving at the Master Farmer and dropping the lower level seeds.
    • An alternative for lower-level players who wish to acquire seeds but do not have the required thieving levels to pickpocket from Martin the Master Gardener or from Olivia's stall is to simply stand around Draynor Marketplace near the stalls and wait for players to drop seeds they are pickpocketing. (Many players train thieving here and end up dropping a lot of their seeds on the ground because they're either doing it only for experience, have no room in their inventories, or are simply not getting the seeds they want and drop the lower-level ones.)
  • Pickpocketing Master Farmers (including Martin the Master Gardener) with level 38 Thieving for all seeds except tree seeds and fruit tree seeds.
  • Buying from Olivia who runs the seed stall in Draynor Village. Only low-level-farming seeds are available for purchase.
  • Stealing from Olivia's stall with level 27 Thieving. (You will not be able to purchase seeds from her for a short period of time if you steal from her.
  • Bird's nests give tree and fruit tree seeds and can be obtained from the following ways:
  • Managing Miscellania for seeds and bird's nests. Allocating resources to cutting wood gives bird nests, allocating resources to herbs or flax can yield herb seeds, and allocating resources to farming gives a wide variety of seeds. The Throne of Miscellania quest is required (and Royal Trouble for the farming).
  • Monster drops. Ogres, Moss giants, Aberrant spectres, and Dagannoths are a few examples of monsters with good seed drops.
  • Catching implings, especially Nature implings.
  • Watermelon seeds can be obtained as a reward in the Temple Trekking minigame.
