Farming Guide

Recommended Posts

Getting Started

To start Farming, you need to get the tools. These can be bought from Jackie at Home.

The Water can needs to be filled and it can be done by casting the Lunar Humidify spell, or by using it on a water source (Fountain, Drain, Well, etc)

ALL Farming timers are 1/2 of OSRS. So it takes 80 minutes to grow herbs on OSRS and 40 minute on Zenyte!

Note: This guide is based off of my own preference. You can train via other methods, or grow different things apart from those listed here. However, e.g. the herbs listed on this guide are there because they are either A) Easy to aquire or B) Very useful for Herblore.

If you have any questions - Send a PM to SilverNova or "SilverNova#5932" on Discord

Leveling Up

Lv. 1-9: Rake patches, or grow Potatoes

Lv. 9-15: Grow Guams.

Lv. 15-30: Grow Acorns (Tree) + Marrentil/Tarromin/Harralander (Herb) 

Lv. 30-45: Grow Willows (Tree) + Ranarr (Herb)

Lv. 45-60: Grow Maples (Tree) + Irit/Kwuarm (Herb)

Lv. 60-75: Grow Yews (Tree) + Papaya or Palm Tree (Fruit Tree) + Snapdragon/Cadantine/Lantadyme (Herb) 

Lv. 75-99: Grow Magics (Tree) + Papaya or Palm Tree (Fruit Tree)  + Herb seeds that you need for Herblore

Remember that you can grow any herbs that you want. So if you have some herb seeds, but none of them are listed here - Plant them anyways!


Compost

Compost is used in order to protect your seeds from diseases. In addition, it also grants you more yield from the seeds. The better compost you use, the more protection and yield you recieve in return. It is recommended to use Supercompost on Trees & Fruit Trees, and Ultracompost on Herbs. Why? Well because you don't really care about the yield of trees and fruit trees, you just don't want them to die. That's why you save the Ultracompost for the herb seeds, so that you can get as many as possible to have more resources for training Herblore.

Compost is obtained by putting weeds, sweetcorn and other farming produce into the compost bin at farming patches. You then close the compost bin, and wait. It can also be bought from various of stores, including Vanessa's Farming Shop (Catherby), Allanna's Farming Shop (Farming Guild), Sarah's Farming Shop (North of Port Sarim) and others.

Supercompost is obtained by pineapple, watermelon, avantoe, kwuarm, snapdragon and other farming produces into the compost bin at farming patches. You then close the compost bin, and wait. It can also be made by creating compost, and adding a compost potion to the compost bin before it is closed.

Ultracompost is obtained by using two volcanic ash on a bucket of supercompost. Players can also add 25 volcanic ashes to a compost win containing supercompost in order to turn it into Ultracompost. However, by this time it is required that the player has first made compost in the bin, then turned it into supercompost and only then can the player transform it into Ultracompost. 

Most recommended way to compost your patches is with the Fertile Soil (83 Magic) Lunar Spell. Mine volcanic ashes from the Fossil Island, and have them ready with you when you go on your farming runs so that you can cast Fertile Soil on your patches and instantly apply Ultracompost to them.

 

 

Patches

The main patches you will be focusing on are Herb and Fruit TreeTree patches

Herb seeds can be obtained through Thieving by pickpocketing Master Farmers.

Fruit & Tree seeds are harder to get, but can be obtained from Master Farmers as well. Can also be gotten from PvM.

You forgot to add the Faldor tree patch (if its working). Great guide anyway!

Whoops, I actually had it included but accidentally inserted the wrong image. It has been taken care of. Thank you!

You just keep popping these guides out like they grow on trees. (Yes, pun intended.)

Keep it up!

Great guide.

Here are some small changes.

Herb patch 1: you spawn near to the fruit tree from Catherby, So Camelot is roughly the same.

Herb patch 2: fastest way is fairy ring code: ALQ then run north.

Fruit tree patch 3: Either stronghold slayer cave from slayer ring or Tree gnome stronghold from spirit tree at home.

Tree patch 1: Same as above

Tree patch 2: Taverley from home portal is fastest.

 

Might be worth talking about compost potion, only takes volcanic ash + harralander + compost from shops = ultra compost fast without waiting

There's technically a ton of teleports you can use to get to either patch. I've edited Tree Patch #2 based on your suggestion, but I kept the rest the same because it is roughly the same time. E.g. it doesn't matter if you run from Camelot or Catherby to the Catherby Herb Patch. One might be a few seconds faster, but I doubt that people are recording the difference of tiles between each method of transportation to each patch.

Hey nice guide and defenitly good for new players!

However for herb patch 2(canafis): Zenyte portal> training> experiments> climb up ladder is WAAYY faster.

Gif on how fast it is: https://gyazo.com/996eae890ee280cb558a2e88e9060835

Thanks for the tip! I've edited the post based on your suggestion 🙂
