Elder seed 5 detail.png

An elder seed is a tree seed used to grow an elder tree. It can be planted in a soiled plant pot and grown into an elder sapling at level 90 Farming. It can then be planted in the elder tree patch located in the Crwys Clan district of Prifddinas. Sior will watch over a growing Elder tree at the cost of a payment of 25 morchella mushrooms. An elder tree takes at least 70 hours (just under 3 days) to fully grow, and checking its health will yield 23,162.1 Farming experience.

Before Prifddinas was released it used to be obtained from skilling for 24 hours while wearing the crystal amulet, or while wearing a clover necklace if the player owns the crystal amulet. One elder seed is received for every 24 crystal motherlode shards from the amulet, and the following message is shown: Your crystal amulet has produced an elder tree seed.

Growing an elder seed into a tree and checking its health is a requirement for the title [Name] of the Crwys. Chopping a log from an elder tree you have grown in the Crwys district and fletching it into an elder shortbow is a requirement for completing one of the Tirannwn Tasks, "Respect your Elders".
