Ranarr seeds can be planted in a herb patch with level 32 Farming in order to produce grimy ranarr weeds. It can be obtained from monsters, as a rare loot from pickpocketing Master Farmers, as a High Level Gamble reward from the Barbarian Assault minigame, or rarely from Managing Miscellania if residents are assigned to Farming.
Planting Ranarr seeds can be profitable, as long as the player takes precautions to minimise disease. The use of ultracompost (or the enhanced Fertile Soil spell) is strongly recommended, to help prevent disease and increase the average yield to where a decent profit can be made.
Note: A nearby gardener will not watch over your growing herb.
To be absolutely certain that the herbs will not get diseased while growing, players should plant them in Troll Stronghold after completing My Arm's Big Adventure. My Arm will be watching over your patch. The Hosidius's allotment patch also becomes immune to disease with at least 50% Hosidius favour. The herb patch in Weiss is also immune, but requires having built a fire pit before being able to plant herb seeds in it.

(update | poll)
|Players can now dig up healthy herb patches before they're fully grown. To prevent players from gaining experience repeatedly by planting and digging up herb seeds, they experience usually gained from planting them are now given when harvesting them, alongside the usual harvesting experience.|
