Runescape farming guide

This guide describes the most effective methods to train the Farming skill. Farming is a gathering skill which involves the player planting seeds at the Farming patches that are found throughout RuneScape. The planted crops then grow in real time through differing numbers of growth stages. Once a plant has become fully grown the player may check its health and, for some types of crop, harvest items from it. Plants may become diseased over the course of their growth and will die if the disease is not treated. To prevent plants from dying players may wish to pay the gardeners, who are present at most Farming patches, to tend to them. Players can pay the farmers with noted items. This saves a great deal of inventory space when making farming runs. You can also buy Runescape gold directly

As the majority of Farming experience is obtained from checking a fully grown plants’ health, levelling the Farming skill is most commonly done via “farm runs”. A farm run involves the player quickly visiting as many patches of a particular type as possible to check the health of fully grown plants, remove them and replant new plants in their place. Farming training typically involves farm runs of trees, fruit trees and other special trees once the ability to plant these has been unlocked. And a great way to gain RS gold, also for old school rs gold.

Tree seeds cannot be directly planted into a tree patch. Instead, they must be added to a plant pot, which costs 668, while a gardening trowel is present in the player’s inventory or stored on their tool belt, to create a seedling. The seedling can then be watered using a watering can or magic watering can and will, after approximately 5 minutes, turn into a sapling which can be planted in a tree patch. After planting a sapling the player will be left with an empty plant pot, worth 16. Players who do not wish to receive these plant pots can turn on the option “destroy empty plant pots when farming” in the Miscellaneous Settings tab of the Game Settings options. Seedlings and saplings are untradeable. Players wishing to reclaim tree seeds that have been put into plant pots can do so using the right-click “salvage seed” option on a tree sapling, though this has only approximately 75% chance of returning the seed.
