Herb seed detail.png

Snapdragon seeds can be planted in a herb patch with level 62 Farming in order to produce grimy snapdragons. They can be obtained from monsters, farming contracts, as a reward from Larran's big chest or as a very rare loot from pickpocketing Master Farmers.

Planting snapdragon 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.
