Details
Farming grimy toadflax can be a very profitable way to spend a few minutes at a time. However, it most profitable when all possible items to maximize the crop yield:

Without these items, herb farming is much less profitable. One could expect about 6.8 herbs per patch and a 10% death rate, but with all of the above, an average of 10.7 herbs per patch can be achieved, meaning 75 per run. (75 is the amount used in the profit calculation.)

Start your run with 7 toadflax seeds, 7 supercompost, transportation to get to all seven patches and whatever yield-boosting items you have. At each location, harvest any available herbs, note them with the tool leprechaun, compost the patch, and plant a new seed.

  • Use the cabbage port option on your Explorer's ring to teleport to the patch south of Falador .
  • If you've completed My Arm's Big Adventure, Teleport to Trollheim and use the agility shortcuts to the west. Continue through an area filled with aggressive trolls and into the stronghold. Run south through the stronghold, to a door, and then north to a ladder. Climb it to get to the patch. The Livid Farm spell Teleport to Trollheim can also be used, but you must be on lunar spells.
  • Empty the Ectophial to Port Phasmatys and run west.
  • Teleport to Ardougne and run north-east, or use the Ardougne cloak teleport to get to the patch instantly.
  • Teleport to Camelot and run east until you reach the patch north of Catherby.
  • If you've completed Plague's End teleport to Prifddinas using Crystal teleport seed and selecting Crwys.
  • If you have completed the Wilderness Tasks easy, teleport to the Wilderness Herb patch via the Wilderness sword 1 or higher. It is recommended that you bank any other herbs or valuables first, to reduce the value you are risking. If you wish, you may bring a Demonic skull for increased experience gain, but this does not increase profit and increases your chance of death. If you do not have the Wilderness Sword, it may take several minutes to run to the herb patch. It is up to you is this is worth the time investment.
  • NOTE: The Wilderness Patch is located in level 38 Wilderness, and you will not be able to use conventional teleports to escape. You can use the Wilderness obelisk nearby to reach lower level Wilderness. Alternatively, run south to level 30 wilderness and escape via an Amulet of glory, a Ring of wealth, or a Combat bracelet.
From start to finish, this process takes about five minutes, and the new seeds you planted can be checked in 80 minutes. You could sell your herbs after each run, or wait a while and sell them. Cleaning the toadflax and/or using the toadflax to make unfinished potions can also be very profitable.
