That'll do nicely, sir. Leave it with me - I'll make sure that patch grows for you.2,706
Well, you have come to the right person, then - I researched exotic plant diseases as part of my druidic training. What is the affliction that you need to cure?1,187
Ah, so is this the famous Burthorpe Vine?1,185
I'm afraid that my researches did not extend to Burthorpe Vine. Bernald and his ancestors have always closely guarded their heritage, that vine. In fact, I'm surprised that he has involved you.1,183
I see. Well, if it involves some unnatural power I would rather not know. I prefer the use of power that can be brought forth from the plants around us.1,178
I'm already looking after that patch for you.1,066
Well...989
You know of that?!? Then I can do no further harm here. You can make a potent plant cure by mixing some crumbled rune essence into a normal plant cure. This may possibly cure Bernald's vines.988
That'll do nicely, madam. Leave it with me - I'll make sure that patch grows for you.977
There is one thing you could try. One of the most potent cures I have discovered involves using the natural power held within a very special mineral, but it is a very closely guarded secret.794
You don't have a sapling planted in that patch. Plant one and I might agree to look after it for you.429
That patch is already fully grown! I don't know what you want me to do with it!354
Why? You look like you could chop it down yourself!271
Well, it's a lot of hard work - if you pay me 200 Coins I'll chop it down for you.265
This is the power you are abusing!! I feel it now - it emanates from the ring you wear, a festering fountain of corruption that appalls my very soul!!!183
I'll want 200 Coins to chop down your tree.144
I want 25 coconuts for that.124
I want one basket of apples for that.116
That patch is dead - it's too late for me to do anything about it now.91
You, %USERNAME%, are the one who must be weak- minded, if you consider using such a dreadful weapon. Beware - it may one day be your downfall.88
I want one basket of oranges for that.87
I want 10 cactus spines for that.80
You, %USERNAME%, are the one who must be weak-minded, if you consider using such a dreadful weapon. Beware - it may one day be your downfall.78
That depends on whether I have it to sell. What is it that you're looking for?66
I want one basket of tomatoes for that.48
Why, yes I am. Why do you ask?41
Well obviously it's the seasons. They all seem to be out- of-wack these days. Summer comes earlier and earlier each year, but then it simply rushes by!29
No, sorry, but find that out and you'll get to the root of our problems.29
If you find out what is upsetting the seasons you'll find out what is causing the harvest to fail.24
That looks like something that you can make supercompost out of. Fill up the compost bin with stuff like that, and you'll eventually have a bin full of supercompost.23
Plant cure, eh? I might have some put aside for myself. Tell you what, I'll sell you some plant cure for 25 coins if you like.23
If you like, but I want one basket of apples for that.21
A rake, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.17
If you like, but I want one basket of tomatoes for that.16
That's a stump. It'll grow back if you just leave it alone for a while.15
That looks like something that you can make normal compost out of. Fill up the compost bin with stuff like that, and you'll eventually have a bin full of compost.10
That patch is diseased - you should cure it before asking me to be responsible for it!8
Tree seeds must be grown in a plantpot of soil into a sapling, and then transferred to a tree patch to continue growing to adulthood.6
If you like, but I want one basket of oranges for that.6
A bucket of compost, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 35 coins if you like.6
A watering can, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 25 coins if you like.4
Vegetables, hops and flowers need constant watering - if you ignore my advice, you will sooner or later find yourself in possession of a dead farming patch.3
If you want to grow fruit trees you could try a few places: Catherby, Brimhaven, Gnome Stronghold and the Farming Guild all have fruit tree patches.3
You can fill plantpots with soil from any empty patch, if you have a gardening trowel.3
If you want to make your own sacks and baskets you'll need to use the loom that's near the Farming shop in Falador. If you're a good enough craftsman, that is.3
You can buy all the farming tools from farming shops, which can be found close to the allotments.3
How can you ask such a thing? It's obvious! It's all you adventurers. Every time I get a crop planted, some adventurer comes along and digs it up and plants crops of their own, as if they owned my farming patch!3
It's really annoying! You should speak to your friends about their rude behaviour!3
Don't give me that! You're an adventurer, they're all adventurers. I bet you have some sort of secret guild and you gather there and say things like 'let's annoy the gardeners this week', don't you?3
Aha, so you admit it then! You should be ashamed of yourselves!3
Applying compost to a patch will not only reduce the chance that your crops will get diseased, but you will also grow more crops to harvest.3
Well I can tell by the look on your face that I'm not the first person you've asked. Why don't you tell me what you've heard from other members of the group so far?3
Did you ever consider that all those theories might be correct?3
I'll let you into a little secret that'll explain it all to you. In a word - fairies!3
I'm serious! 3
Think it through. There are fairies who control everything natural from the weather to the seasons.3
There are six main Farming areas - Elstan's area near Falador, Dantaera's area near Catherby, Kragen's area near Ardougne, Lyra's area in Morytania, Marisi's area in Hosidius and Alan's area in the Farming Guild.2
You can put up to five tomatoes, strawberries, apples, bananas or oranges into a fruit basket, although you can't have a mix in the same basket.2
Don't just throw away your weeds after you've raked a patch - put them in a compost bin and make some compost.2
The only way to cure a bush or tree of disease is to prune away the diseased leaves with a pair of secateurs. For all other crops I would just apply some plant-cure.2
Insects! That's what you can tell him! Insects! Stop the insects from eating so many of our crops and we'd get maximum yield, I tell you!2
I've already told you everything I suspect.2
Supercompost is far better than normal compost, but more expensive to make. You need to rot the right type of item; show me an item, and I'll tell you if it's super- compostable or not.2
Bittercap mushrooms can only be grown in a special patch in Morytania, near the Mort Myre swamp. There the ground is especially dank and suited to growing poisonous fungii.2
You don't have to buy all your plantpots you know, you can make them yourself on a pottery wheel. If you're a good enough craftswoman, that is.2
If you like, but I want 10 cactus spines for that.2
I don't know what you're talking about - I'm already looking after that patch for you.2
Surely if all of those things have been mentioned as catalysts to our problems it stands to reason that the fairies are actually the cause?2
A gardening trowel, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.2
I don't think the crops ARE failing, now leave me alone, I have work to do.2
Hops are good for brewing ales. I believe there's a brewery up in Keldagrim somewhere, and I've heard rumours that a place called Phasmatys used to be good for that type of thing. 'Fore they all died, of course.2
If you like, but I want 25 coconuts for that.1
You can put up to ten potatoes, cabbages or onions in vegetable sacks, although you can't have a mix in the same sack.1
Eh, I suppose I can spare you a plant pot, but I'll want 40 coins for it.1
You don't have to buy all your plantpots you know, you can make them yourself on a pottery wheel. If you're a good enough craftsman, that is.1
A seed dibber, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.1
Well, I'm not wasting my time for free.1
