The Sorceress's Garden is a minigame located in the southeastern side of Al Kharid. A player needs to talk to Osman and he will inform you that he wants sq'irkjuice. The player will need to go to the Sorceress' Garden to collect the sq'irk fruit from the sq'irk trees and squeeze into an empty beer glass. There is no actual garden that a player can see from the outside, just a normal house with an NPC named apprentice.

One may gain access to the garden by talking to the apprentice. You have to initially talk to her and listen to her to be able to gain access, if not, she will teleport you out of the house. Once you are teleported to the garden, you will be in the centre and now you can "right-click- Teleport" to the garden, skipping the dialog. To exit the garden, drink from the fountain in the centre.

The garden has four gates, one for each season. The Autumn garden is located to the south, the Summer garden is located to the north, the Winter garden is located to the west, and Spring garden is located to the east. Each garden requires a different Thieving level to enter.

The purpose of this minigame is to collect enough fruit from the garden to fill an empty beer glass with its juice. Once you have a glass you can give it to Osman and he will provide you with Thieving experience. But beware, getting to the fruit tree is a lot more difficult than it seems. In each garden, the player must trek through the shrubs without being caught by the corresponding Elemental. The Elementals stay on a fixed path and will teleport you back to the centre of the garden when you are caught. The Elementals only see directly in front of them, not on the side.

As an alternative to collecting the sq'irk fruit, there is a herb patch in each garden, and one may harvest from the herb patch instead of collecting a sq'irk fruit. You will gain Farming experience and random types and numbers of herbs. Different seasons provide different types of herbs.

After getting the fruit/herbs you will be teleported back to the centre of the garden. One fruit can be obtained per run.

Picking the herbs grant 50 Farming experience.
