Players earn farming XP after harvesting crops. The higher tier seeds, the better XP yields. High XP seeds are often also rarer.
Farming level allows players grow high level seeds, and prevent some type of seeds from dying(see below).
After finishing the quest, Bob start finding seeds with his Rake. Bob's wife Bobette will join with him later with her Trowel after completing the quest. The, initially slow, accumulation rate can been boosted by inlaying Gems into the rake. Each level of gem adding an additional 5% chance of finding seeds, with a maximum bonus of 20%.
There are 4 farming plots to grow seeds on, with an additional 2 plots available as a donor perk. Seeds can by planted by clicking on the plot and selecting the image of the seed wish to plant. Crops are harvested by clicking on the mature plant. Completing the Factory farming quest gives players access to the planter. This allows players to plant all plots at the same time with the same seed. If for some reason one plant the wrong seed, he can click on the plot and remove what he has growing to clear the plot. The planter can not remove growing plants from farming plots.
There are four type of seeds based on its function.
Primary seeds are grown for primary brewing ingredients, mostly are leaves variants. They have a chance of dying until players reach a certain farming level. This was 1/7 in Diamond Hunt 1, even so it's not sure if it's the same in DH2.
Secondary seeds are grown for secondary brewing ingredients. They are mushrooms, grass type and Strange Leaf, a special leaf that can only be obtained from woodcutting and Tree/ent monsters. None of secondary seeds required bonemeal to grow and usually give very small farming XP.
Tree seeds are for more logs and farming XP. They usually give decent XP with very high growing time. Players can get tree seeds from chopping trees in woodcutting patches, but not from trees growing in farming patches. It also can be obtained from workers.
Food seeds are for alternative food source beside fish from fishing, and only collecting by Bobette. For that reason, they give very low farming XP, yet take a long time to grow. Food seeds don't use bonemeal.
Higher level tree and leaf seeds use bonemeal to grow.
