Scroll down for the walkthrough for this quest..

First of all you need to talk to Martin the Master Gardener. He tells you that his roses are not as good as they used to be and crops have been getting smaller. Promise him that you will help him out. Go talk to various different farmers. You should go northwest next to the nearest allotments and talk to Elstan there. Ask if he's a G.A.G. member and he will tell you about the lack of rain. Now, use your ectophial and teleport or walk to Port Phasmatys. Go slightly west to the allotment and talk to Lyra. If you don’t have the ectophial, go to Rimmington bush patch and talk to Taria instead. Ask if she is a member of G.A.G too. She tells you that the insects are the problem. Go to Camelot with the teleport or by walking. Go to the Catherby allotment. Talk to Dantaera and ask her the same question. She says that the problem are the various adventurers planting crops in her fields. Walk to the tree patch just east from Catherby and talk to Ellena there. Ask her about the problems with farming. She says the reason is the seasons. Go to Ardougne and walk to the allotment north of the city. Talk to Kragen, who is looking after the allotments and ask if he is a member of G.A.G. He says the reason is the faeries. Now go back to Draynor Village and talk to Martin. He will tell you to go to the lost city, Zanaris, in Lumbridge. Take your dramen staff with you. Wear it and go to the wooden house which you entered in the Lost City quest. Walk south and talk to the Fairy Godfather. Ask him where the queen is and proceed west through Zanaris. Go to the room north from the bank of Zanaris and talk to Fairy Nuff. The queen is sick, Fairy Nuff will give you a list of her symptoms. Go to Falador and walk west to Dark Wizards Tower. Go to the highest floor and talk to Zandar Horfyre there. He will tell you to go talk to a necromancer called Malignus Mortifer. If you haven’t bought or taken your secateurs from bank yet, now is the time to get them. He can be found a little northwest from Port Sarim, or by going southwest from Falador south passage. Talk to Malignus, he will ask you to get him a skull from a grave in Draynor Manor. The grave is located north from the manor, near the gallows on the inner side of the fence surrounding the manor. Get a spade from the easternmost room of the manor and dig while standing on the grave to get a skull. Go back to Malignus and talk about the quest once more.
