This task begins with Farmer D`Resh in Crescent Reach (location -1638, -1521, -87).

You say, 'Hail, Farmer D`Resh'

Farmer D`Resh says 'Vasha, friend. I was just looking into breeding some hardier strains of [vegetables] here.'

You say, 'Vegetables?'

Farmer D`Resh says 'Indeed. We haven't had much luck cultivating a thriving garden here, as I am sure you've noticed. While some of the other farmers have been looking into how the bixies do it, I had another [idea].'

You say, 'What was your idea?'

Farmer D`Resh says 'Yes, I've heard tales of walking trees and shrubs out in the moors. I believe the shrubs may be the key. If I can cross their [seed pods] with the seeds I have here, I may be onto something!'

You say, 'Seed pods'

Farmer D`Resh says, 'I need a few samples to work with. Would you be so [kind]?'

You say, 'I would be so kind'

You have been assigned the task "Hardy Seeds".

Farmer D'Resh says, 'Fantastic! Go out into the moors and see if these walking shrubs really DO exist. I believe I've heard them referred to as gnarl.. Briar.. Something. Just think, we could soon have a thriving garden of our own! Hrm, hopefully one that doesn't walk around. That would be a bit inconvenient, wouldn't it?'

Loot 4 Seed Pods from walking shrubs 0/4 (Blightfire Moors)
Deliver 4 Seed Pods to Farmer D'Resh 0/4 (Crescent Reach)

Seed pods drop off briar thorns, howling thorns, gnarl thorns, and hedge devils.

Upon making your delivery:

Farmer D`Resh says, 'Thanks so much for your help.' D`Resh holds up a seed pod and shakes it, producing a faint rattling noise from within. She sincerely thanks you for bringing them to her and hands you your reward.

You gain experience!!

It is a good idea to do the following at the same time, since you have to kill, and loot from, the same Mobs. These quests can be obtained at level 25 and you might be able to do them then, depending on your gear.

Akins Quest #3 -Deadwood: the Shambling Mounds.(See https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=3660.

Kindling for the Fire, given by Smithy Bronson (See https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=3787)

Is this repeatable?

Yes. I have done this Quest a minimum of 6 times on my 53 ranger.

I have done this quest so often that my armor's gotta be re-dyed to get the green out. As a warrior I rely on some major health potions and this quests gives you 10 at a time...potions that you can't buy anywhere else that does as good for mid levels. The potions are actually FREE which is a amazing. I generally keep at least a stack in my "Shammy in a bag" for use in the field.
I hit level 50 yesterday and they're still the best!
