    Who is on it?


    I started with 10 seeds from Titans and 10 seeds from Terrathan warriors.
    My friend starting with 10 Seeds from Kappas and 10 from Mummies.


    All growing in Fertile dirt and 2 strenght potions a day. Already had 2 plant moved 2 growth stages at ones that i planted yesterday. :)


    Going to hunt more seeds from other monsters but i'll keep them in seperate bags. Hopefully i get a idea what monster drops what seeds.



    If anyone want seeds or plants in the future, just let me know.

    At the moment I have just one fragrant seed from a wisp and it is in normal earth, so will take a little longer,
    Must get some more tonight if I can be brave enough to tackle something other than a wisp

    If anyone needs potions of any kind, I should be able to help :)
    Just ask on here

    Legacyee,
    If you want to have some sort of seeds, just tell me which monster you would like to try to kill and we can take a look at it. :) They all aren't too difficult, but I know it can be hard with the surrounding spawn.

    I thank you for your offer, when we know which monster drops which seed, I shall know better which monster I would like to kill
    So if I can take you up on your offer at a later date, it would suit me better (and give me time to prepare) I am not a great fighter but I am willing to have a try
    Maybe after this weekend when my Greater Dragon Bonds (thank you again Nenime) my tamer will have a better chance :)

    In the week-end i'm going to kill Serpentine dragons with my friend to get seeds of them. Hopefully we won't run into too many Paragons of them. :)

    Although gardening looks a bit strange if you like fighting monsters but its a little fun. I just see as a extra facet of the game to try out. Just like i have a silly aquarium with fish :)


    Although the hunting for the seeds is fun but getting them grow and waiting to see what plants you will get is just a little excitment. ;)

    Yes, you're right. I'm glad that UO offers a lot of activities which seems to be useless or a waste of time at first glance. I consider them as some kind of leasure within the game. After some hard time in a dungeon, I replace cincture with apron and start cooking. All the opportunities for house decoration are so much fun, too.

    For gardening, I wait a little bit longer. Due to the Spring Cleaning, I already have so much 'work' to do which was left undone. And yet I hear about another mysterious quest in Britian Castle... *sighs*...just don't know where to start. rolleyes: ;)

    Never mind, most were posted already in UHall. :)
    Now it's just a matter of finding out which monster gives what seeds.

    Oh yes, please! I would very much appreciate this because I found out that I'm a lemon at gardening - and I only did the basics. Right now it's a mystery to me how to get a specific plant. Even cross-pollinating? Oh my! :confused:

    I searched around southern Luna but couldn't find your shop. May you please tell again where it is? (Pm me in case you don't want to make it public.)

    @ Ceridwen: the pictures are great! Very helpful, thanks! :)

    Our shop is south outside Luna. Its a little away from the road to the east. Its called the Cat's Outpost. The shop looks like a ruined building with a big fountain infront with stable and big garden on the roof.


    There 2 big buildings with lots and lots of vendors to the East and North of us.

    Did anyone got a rare colored new plant?


    My geuss is they come from naturalist quest. The plants you get there are random selected when it shows as a plant (day 7). I think the new plants are in the pool of plants choices of them.
