I am trying to get 70 farming so I can plant a poison ivy bush for the Varrock achievement diary. What should I plant to get some fast exp. If I could, I would like to make some money from it aswell.

rannar seeds cost like 34k each

you plant 1 in each farm

if you use super compost you get around 7-9 back

if not that do like potatos because they are really cheap to buy

It's pretty much impossible to get Quick exp and make money in Farming.
If you want Money, do Herbs.
If you want Exp, do Reg Trees and Fruit Trees.

:blink:


Compromise: do both.

That's fast if your idea of 'fast' is getting level 70 by 2013.

Trees and herbs are the fastest xp: trees are very expensive, are a money drain, but require little work, especially if you pay gardeners; herbs are less expensive, can yield a profit, but require more work than trees due to the fact that you can't pay gardeners to take care of them.

Ok, I have decided to plant curry trees in fruit tree patches, plant toadflax until 62, then switch to snapdragon till 70 and plant yews when I reach 60.

Should I also plant watermelons and whats the fastest way to get around to all the patches?

There are a few things you need to do.  You will need to pay the farmer at all of the allotments/tree spots to watch your stuff:
  • Make super compost.
  • Plant trees.
  • Plant fruit trees.
  • Plant in allotments.
  • Plant herbs.  Use the talisman on on plot so you don't lose that one.  The other herbs you will need to take a chance of them getting diseased and dying.
Play vinesweeper while the crops are growing.  Use super compost and magic secateurs (if you have them) to max out your crop yield.

Watermelons are good if you have a large supply.  Check to see what crop you need to grow to pay the farmers to watch watermelons.  I usually use teletabs and energy pots to get around.  You can also use the fairy ring transport if you have done those quests to get to Caniffis and use the ectophial to Port Phasmatys.  If you plant yews then you need a cactus in Al Kharid.  It will give you three cactus spines at a time.  Each Yew needs 10 spines for the farmer to watch over it.

Never tried it.  You may want to try one of the farming boosts (Dreadfowl is one I know of) if you are within one level of what you want to grow.  There are other boosts for +2 or +3, but, I can't remember what they are right now.
Panic now, beat the rush!

Afaik, Jagex stated that assists can NOT be used for any quests or achievment diaries. So no, nice try, but sorry. :blink:
