Ah, fantastic - Lyra will surely be mine now! Here you go mate, here's those delphinium seeds you were after.1,004
Why, yes I am. Why do you ask?870
I do have delphinium seeds, yes - but to spare, I'm not so sure. You don't look like that much of a gardener to me.870
Yes, here you go - I hope they grow for you.854
Ah, now that I like the sound of. So people are saying I'm an expert, then?825
You don't have any seeds planted in that patch. Plant some and I might agree to look after it for you.806
That patch is already fully grown! I don't know what you want me to do with it!804
Yes, and while I'm at it I can see how good a gardener you are. Grow those marigolds in this flower patch here from seed to flower, pick them and give them to me, and I'll give you some delphinium seeds.798
As I'm in an especially good mood I think I will let you have some. But you have to do something for me first.797
I need some marigolds to give to Lyra, one of my fellow gardeners over in Morytania. She's a bit mysterious, and has some - well - sinister ways to be sure, but she's just my type.797
I can't say that I'm surprised, really - I do seem to have the golden touch with the old gardening lark. Only just the other day I managed to grow a - I'm not boring you, am I?795
Ah, but there's plenty of time for stories. You wanted delphinium seeds, did you say?795
You do! That's the first person I've ever met has said that! Well, don't you worry mate, I've got millions of 'em!793
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.641
That'll do nicely, sir. Leave it with me - I'll make sure that patch grows for you.552
That depends on whether I have it to sell. What is it that you're looking for?467
Ah, Martin sent you, why didn't you say so? I personally think that our problems are all down to the fact that we haven't had enough rain of late. It's plain to see - just look at the levels of the rivers.417
Well there you go then. Until you find out how to make it rain you're going to have a hard time solving our problems.417
I need some marigolds so that I can woo Lyra. Grow them from seed to flower in this flower patch here, pick them and give them to me, and I'll give you some delphinium seeds.414
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!364
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.361
We need more rain. I don't suppose you can do anything about that?284
I'm already looking after that patch for you.172
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.172
That'll do nicely, madam. Leave it with me - I'll make sure that patch grows for you.163
I might - which patch were you thinking of?92
That patch is dead - it's too late for me to do anything about it now.85
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.81
Strange - there's this funny buzzing in my head that says that I should - but I don't think I will. I need those marigolds for Lyra.79
Why yes, I am. Have I become that well known?62
Ah, you mean Rind? Great to hear from the little fellow again. Can I see it please?62
Most enlightening. Please give him my regards next time you see him, I look forward to the next conference.62
I want 5 jangerberries for that.57
Hang on, I didn't see you growing any marigolds! I want them grown here, in this patch.57
I want 10 curry leaves for that.55
Do you want those seeds or not?55
I've already told you everything I suspect.54
A rake, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.49
I want 2 sacks of cabbages for that.37
A seed dibber, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.34
I want 10 jute fibres for that.25
A watering can, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 25 coins if you like.22
I want one sack of potatoes for that.21
Well, I'm not wasting my time for free.18
I want one sack of onions for that.18
Ah, marigolds. I didn't see you grow these, though. Did you grow these from seed, then?17
No, thought not. You grow some, and I'll give you the seeds you're after.17
I want one basket of apples for that.17
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!17
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?17
Aha, so you admit it then! You should be ashamed of yourselves!17
It's really annoying! You should speak to your friends about their rude behaviour!16
I want 2 buckets of compost for that.15
What?!? Any more of that talk and it'll be curtains for you, mate!13
Eh, I suppose I can spare you a plant pot, but I'll want 40 coins for it.11
A gardening trowel, eh? I might have one spare... tell you what, I'll sell it to you for 15 coins if you like.9
That patch is diseased - you should cure it before asking me to be responsible for it!8
If you like, but I want 2 sacks of cabbages for that.7
You can put up to ten potatoes, cabbages or onions in vegetable sacks, although you can't have a mix in the same sack.7
Yes, certainly. I'll help if I can. Which quest would you like help with?7
If you like, but I want 2 buckets of compost for that.7
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?7
Did you ever consider that all those theories might be correct?7
I'll let you into a little secret that'll explain it all to you. In a word - fairies!7
I'm serious! 7
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!7
If you find out what is upsetting the seasons you'll find out what is causing the harvest to fail.7
No, sorry, but find that out and you'll get to the root of our problems.7
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?6
You can fill plantpots with soil from any empty patch, if you have a gardening trowel.5
Think it through. There are fairies who control everything natural from the weather to the seasons.5
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.5

Don't just throw away your weeds after you've raked a patch - put them in a compost bin and make some compost.3
You can buy all the farming tools from farming shops, which can be found close to the allotments.3
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.3
I don't think the crops ARE failing, now leave me alone, I have work to do.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 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
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.2
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.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
There is a special patch for growing Belladonna - I believe that it is somewhere near Draynor Manor, where the ground is a tad 'unblessed'.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
There are five other Farming areas like this one - 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.1
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.1
Really?!? Well, give me any more of that kind of talk and I'll give you something to remember me by, and I'll tell you now that it ain't seeds!!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
