Herb seeds refer to any seed used to grow herbs with the Farming skill. They can only be grown in herb patches.

Unlike allotment seeds, there is no way to protect herbs from disease. Players need to check on the herbs regularly and apply plant cure as required if the player wants to assure that his or her plant grows successfully. Seeing as this is somewhat impractical most players plant all their herbs, wait until they are grown and then go and harvest them. Herbs do not die often if you use supercompost. There is a herb patch that cannot become diseased on top of the Troll Stronghold which can be used upon completion of the quest My Arm's Big Adventure. It is highly recommended to use supercompost on every herb planted, as it will greatly reduce the death risk and you will always get at least 5 herbs per seed provided it doesn't die.
