Potato seed detail.png

Potato seeds are the first seeds able to be grown in Farming. They can be used to grow potatoes by planting three seeds together in an allotment patch.

They may be found randomly while picking potatoes from a field. They might also be obtained by pickpocketing master farmers, purchasing or stealing them from Olivia's seed stall in Draynor Village, purchasing them from Head Farmer Jones, or occasionally as a reward when running favours for the Wise Old Man. You can purchase up to 500 potato seeds every 4 hours on the Grand Exchange.

A nearby gardener will ask for 2 buckets of compost per allotment patch to watch over your growing potatoes. Planting marigolds or white lilies will also prevent nearby potato plants from becoming diseased.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Potatoes are usually grown from tubers, not seeds; it is possible that the incorrect term was used by Jagex for simplicity and consistency in naming.
