Wishing well bush seed detail.png

A wishing well bush seed was a seed that could be grown with level 96 Farming, from which a wishing well fruit could be harvested. They were planted in bush patches and could be protected by paying a farmer 15 wildblood hops. Boosts could be used to plant it.

Wishing well seeds were removed from the game on 8 April 2019, due to a number of issues with the reward of the fruit. See Wishing well fruit#Issues and removal for details. Existing seeds were replaced with 1 coin each (the Grand Exchange value at the time).

Checking the health of the bush gave 2200 farming experience. The bush released a wishing well fruit when given an appropriate amount of coins, relative to the player's total skill level. This fruit would contain items of up to three times the value of the coins used. In order to open the fruit, 8 free inventory spaces were needed. Once a fruit was picked, a new bush needed to be planted and grown in order to buy a new fruit.

Or, alternatively, the bush may have been cleared (right click option) and re-planted with a new seed, without having picked the fruit first.

Seeds were obtained from Hunting Jadinkos in the Herblore Habitat, as a reward from wishing well fruit, and from pickpocketing gnomes, elves, or dwarves.
