Herb patch

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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. You need a seed dibber to plant a herb, and a spade to harvest herbs.

Unlike allotments, there is no way to protect herbs from disease, unless using a disease-free patch. Players can check on the herbs regularly and apply plant cure if needed to save a diseased plant. It is highly recommended to use ultracompost on valuable herb crops, as it will greatly reduce the death risk and you will always get at least 6 herbs per seed provided it doesn't die. Yield boosting equipment such as the magic secateurs is also highly beneficial to players.

Bonuses[edit | edit source]

Many herb patches possess unique bonuses either after unlocking or once a requirement is fulfilled:
