Herb patches are Farming patches in which players can grow herbs. Herbs are primarily used in the Herblore skill. Most herb patches also have a compost bin, a tool leprechaun, an allotment and a flower patch nearby. All herbs take 80 minutes to grow before you can harvest them. Each patch requires one seed to begin growing that herb type.

There are herb patches in the following locations:

Note: Remember that many of these methods of travel have various requirements so do click on their links to know more about the requirements and additional useful information.

  • Travelling to the Trollheim patch can be done via:
    • Fastest way: Stony basalt teleport or Troll Stronghold teleport via teleport portal in your POH.
    • Trollheim Teleport in the Standard spellbook or Trollheim tablet.
      • After you have teleported to the top of the mountain, travel west down the mountain to the Troll's outdoor camp. Travel north and along the curved ramp to the Troll Stronghold entrance. Then either:
        • Enter into the stronghold. Inside the stronghold, travel south until you see a door leading west. Go through it and travel north until you see a ladder. Climb it to the roof and travel north to the patch. Note: You must have completed the quest My Arm's Big Adventure in order to use this ladder.
        • If you have 73 Agility and have completed the Fremennik Hard Diary, you can take the shortcut directly to the rooftop patch by climbing the rocks.
    • Fairy ring to Fremennik Slayer Dungeon (AJR)
      • Run north-east, then east. Climb over the rocks while wearing climbing boots. Then run north and enter the stronghold via the secret exit used to free the prisoners during Troll Stronghold. Run north and climb the staircase, open the door and climb the next set of stair case.
      • You can now run to the ladder leading up to the roof, or if you have 73 Agility and have completed the Fremennik Hard Diary, you can exit the stronghold to the south-east and take the shortcut directly to the roof by climbing the rocks.
  • Travelling to the Weiss patch can be done via:
    • Fastest way: Icy basalt teleport then travel slightly south.
    • Travel with Larry's boat located north-east of Rellekka to Weiss (the fastest way to get to Larry's boat is by using the Fairy ring network code dks and then heading west). Go through the cave entrance located east when you arrive. Finally, cross the little boulder located south-west of the hole (from the cave entrance of Weiss).
  • Travelling to the Harmony Island patch can be done via:
