If you are looking for a detailed book about composting this is NOT the book for you.
They will also accept your payment-items in noted form. Gardeners cannot be paid to protect herbs or flowers. A common mistake for players who are new to farming is that they tend to wait next to their patch for their crops to fully grown to become harvestable. Reasons why players wait is because crops do have the tendency to become diseased. However, many crops take more than an hour to grow fully, and most introductory crops take over half an hour. Do not waste your time standing near the farming patches wondering when your crops will grow; instead, do something else.
If you fear your crops will become diseased there are a few ways to prevent this from happening while you are away to most crops and that will be further explained later. In addition, your plants will grow even if you are online playing or offline. The experience reward will raise level 1 Farming to level An uncommon, but helpful item is the amulet of nature. It is tradeable in its unenchanted form, but once enchanted cannot be traded.

It can be bound to a patch by "using" the amulet on the patch. Once bound, and if worn, the amulet will alert you if your plant becomes diseased or has fully grown. You may also "rub" the amulet to check on your bound patch at any time. It can only be bound to one patch at a time, and you may only have one amulet. This boost does not stack with the magic secateurs and takes precedence over them, so if magic secateurs are available to you it is recommended that you unequip the amulet before harvesting. See Farming training for more information on levelling up.
For farming there are certain tools you will need to use, whether it's using a rake to clear a plot or digging up dead plants with a spade. Below is a table of the basic tools and their uses. You can buy a lot of these tools along with compost in farming shops located below. At any farming patch you will come across a tool leprechaun whose job is to look after your farming tools.
The Tool leprechaun will also swap herbs both grimy and clean and harvested produce into note form by using them on the NPC. Seeds are essential in training the Farming skill, however, there are only a few ways in retrieving them. These include:. Patches treated with compost are less likely to become diseased. Using compost also increases the minimum and maximum yields on that patch, though it should be noted that this only works for one set of seeds. Once the crops are harvested, another bucket of compost must be applied to the patch in order to receive its effects.
To create compost you will need around 15 pieces of organic material such as produce, weeds, and rotten fruit. Put this in a Compost bin near a patch and close the lid and wait for around 60 minutes.

Then, with an inventory of 15 empty buckets you can fill them all up with compost. Supercompost is created in a similar way but with higher-end materials such as pineapples and watermelons. Patches treated with supercompost yield more crops than ordinary Compost. Ultracompost is created using volcanic ash on a compost bin or bucket that contains supercompost.
Ultracompost yields even greater crops than supercompost and the crops are even less likely to become diseased. Note that if 25 volcanic ash will be used no matter the remaining super compost is in the bin.

For example, if 10 buckets of supercompost remain in the compost bin, the player will still add 25 ash even though only 20 would be needed if using volcanic ash on the individual buckets. It takes 2 volcanic ash to make 1 bucket of ultracompost when the volcanic ash is used on a bucket of super compost. It is more useful to add volcanic ash directly to a full compost bin, as you will save 5 volcanic ash. Each full allotment patch contains:.

An additional allotment patch with no adjacent flower or herb patches can be found on Harmony Island , which can be accessed after completing The Great Brain Robbery. If paying a gardener to protect their crops, players must pay the gardener to protect each of the allotment patches within an allotment separately. Having fully-grown flowers of the corresponding type will protect adjacent allotment patches from getting diseased for as long as the flowers are in the patch, as an alternative to paying a gardener to protect the patch.
Fully grown allotment patches can be harvested by clicking on the fully grown crops; harvests vary between 3 and 56 crops. After a patch has been harvested, it is cleared for re-planting. A single flower seed is needed to plant in a flower patch. Most flowers yield 1 flower when harvested; this clears the patch. Flower patches cannot be protected by a gardener. Limpwurt seeds , at minimum, will yield 3 limpwurt roots.

The yield can increase depending on the player's Farming level . A herb seed can be planted in a herb patch. Harvests range between 3 and 18 grimy herbs. Using supercompost , or ultracompost and magic secateurs a player will gain an average of 7. Although technically an infinite amount of herbs can be harvested from each patch - it is rare to get more than In addition, a herb patch can also be found on Harmony Island, which requires the completion of the elite Morytania Diary. Players who have completed Making Friends with My Arm are able to use a disease-free herb patch in Weiss , provided they have built the Fire of Nourishment.
Harvests vary between 3 and 46 hops. After a hops patch has been harvested it will be cleared for re-planting. There are 4 bush patches: west of the Champions' Guild , Rimmington , south of Ardougne , and south-west of Etceteria. One bush seed is needed to plant a bush. All bushes except poison ivy are susceptible to disease. A player can check the health of and then harvest berries from fully grown bushes.
This is done by hand and yields a minimum of 4 berries. Depending on the player's Farming level, the berries yield could be more than 4. Unless a bush is dug up it will continue to regrow berries over time. As with other tree seeds, it must be used on a plant pot filled with soil to create a seedling.
The seedling then needs to be watered. After a few minutes the seedling will turn into a sapling , which can then be planted in a tree patch. A fully grown tree acts similarly to the trees that are used in the Woodcutting skill. After checking a tree's health players can cut it down using an axe to receive logs. As with non-player grown trees, there is a chance of a farmed tree dropping bird's nests. Once a tree is cut down it will leave a tree stump, which can be left to respawn or dug up to gain tree roots and to clear the patch.
Gardeners can instantly remove a tree for a fee of As with other tree seeds, before a fruit tree seed can be planted it must be used on a plant pot filled with soil to create a seedling. After a few minutes the seedling will turn into a sapling , which can be planted in a tree patch. Once a fruit tree is fully grown the player may check its health and harvest it to receive 6 fruit.
A fruit tree will continue to grow fruit over time, unless it is cut down and its stump dug up, with a new fruit regenerating every 45 minutes. Gardeners can instantly remove a fruit tree for a fee of This section is a stub. Please help expand it. However, not all patches are capable of being protected. Those farmers who will protect your crops will ask for a payment in return while others are locked behind quests and favours.
Look under Farming skill tab to see what payment is necessary for what you are growing. All farmer payments will be the same. Players can use the allotment patches, as well as the flower and herb patches without the need of Hosidius favour. If a farmer is looking after trees or bushes, it is preferred not to use compost unless you want some exp for adding compost. Trees and bushes have a fixed yield unlike allotments and herbs.
What is Organic Gardening?
Players who have access to the Lunar Spellbook can cast Geomancy in order to look at the health and status of all of their crops at once. Crops do not grow continuously: each plant has a discrete set of growth stages. Plants can only advance to their next growth stage during periodically repeating five minute periods called growth stage windows. Regardless of the seed, growth stage windows last five minutes.
The frequency of growth stage windows occurring is determined by the type of seed e. Fruiting plants such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers, and melons need lots of phosphorus but not so much nitrogen.

Roots like carrots, potatoes, and beets need lots of potassium, and not so much phosphorus or nitrogen. If you are growing these consider adding wood ash or kelp meal. Read more about easy crop rotation here. When it comes to purchasing seeds there are a number of things to keep in mind. I go over it more in detail in this post. If you like thigns to be as easy as possible, here are some awesome tips from my Friend Kristi on how to garden with less work.
It can be as intricate or casual as you want. There are apps you can use but you can also just use a notebook. Start with a piece of paper and outline your garden space. Then mark off where each plant will go. Keep this paper to make notes of which plants did well for next year. I go the super-informal route and use a piece of paper ripped out of an old notebook! Plants need water but not too much water.
As long as you get about an inch of rain a week you are probably good. If you get less than that you may need to supplement by watering with the hose or watering can. First, not all bugs are bad. Many are actually good, like ladybugs. Organic gardening encourages beneficial insects while discouraging pests. Crop rotation is one way to deal with pests.
The idea is that when the pests wake up in the spring, their favorite snack is now in a completely different location, far away at least in bug distance. When bugs do start plaguing your garden, sometimes the best thing to do is to pick them off and drop them into a bucket of soapy water. You can also use a natural homemade pest spray that is easy to make, safe, and works really well. Sacrificial plants are ones that bugs like more than your garden plants, or ones that attract or repel certain insects or animals.

Tomatoes, onions, garlic, sage, and rosemary are thought to deter cabbage worms. If you find you have a certain pest, you can search for natural ways of deterring them and can easily come up with companion or sacrificial plants for your garden. Crop rotation can also help with plant disease.
