Compost potions are made by mixing harralander and volcanic ash in a vial of water. Doing so requires level 22 Herblore and gives 60 experience.

A compost potion is one of the quest rewards after completing Garden of Tranquillity, and can be purchased with 5,000 reward points from participating in the Nightmare Zone minigame.

Players can use a dose of compost potion on a bucket of compost to make it into supercompost, or use a dose on a full compost bin to obtain 15 buckets of supercompost instead. It can also be used on Big Compost Bin which turns all 30 buckets of compost into super with a single dose, thus doubling the potion's benefit.

Compost potions now require level 22 Herblore rather than 21 due to a Harralander potion (unf) requiring level 22 Herblore to create.
