Scroll down for the walkthrough for this quest..

First of all you need to speak to Ellamaria the Queen of Varrock. She will give you a list of seeds. She also advises you to go to the Wise Old man located in Draynor to learn the power of persuasion to gain the seeds and items. Go to Draynor and make a  visit to your bank and withdraw the Ring of Charos (The ring which you received at the end of the Creature of Fenkenstrain quest). If you have lost your ring, you can get another one from pick-pocketing Dr. Fenkentrain from the Creature of Fenkenstrain quest. Speak with the Wise Old Man. You will find him in the large building just North of the bank. He will give you a bit of history on the diplomat, and then proceed to quiz you.

Question: A draynor bank guard asks you if you have seen any suspicious characters lately, because the bank has been robbed. What do you say?
Choose: If I do I will let you know. 
Answering the questions will allow you to get your ring of charos enchanted. You can now set off to get those seeds.
Note: While waiting for your plants to grow, feel free to talk to another target on your list to make things go faster. Be careful  not to destroy all your seeds.
Delphiniumns: Items needed for this part: 1 marigold seed and farming equipment. Go to Falador. Go south to the farming patch. Speak with Elstan and ask "Do you have any Delphinium seeds to spare", then use all the options marked with (Charm) until he will say he will give them to you in exchange for marigolds. Grow them and give them to him and you will get the seeds.
Pink and Yellow Orchids: Items needed for this part: 3 onion seeds and farming equipment. Use your ectophial to go to Port Phasmatys and go west to the farming patch. Don't forget to refill your vial. Talk to Lyra and ask her about the orchids. Listen to her problems. Use the charm options. She will ask you to grow onions for her. You wont have to pick them. Agree and grow them.
Snowdrops: Items needed for this part: 3 cabbage seeds and farming equipment. Go to Ardougne. Go to north east to the farming patches. Speak with Kragen, hear him out, use the charm options. He will then ask you to grow cabbages. Agree and grow them and then collect your four snowdrop seeds.
Burthorpe Vines: Items needed for this part: 2 plant cures, 1 rune essence. Go to Burthorpe and speak to Bernald east of the Bar. He will tell you of the diseased grapevines. Offer to help in exchange for the Burthorpe vines, using all the charm options along the way. Try using your plant cure and you will find it has no effect. Speak to Bernald again and he will tell you of someone who might have a stronger cure. Go south to Taverly and speak with Alain the druid gardener. He is located right against the wall by the tree patch. Ask about the strong plant cure. Don't use the charm options, it has no effect on the druid. He will tell you to grind a rune essence up and use it on a regular plant cure. Break up the rune stone first with your hammer or chisel, then grind it with the pestle and mortar. Use it with the plant cure and then go cure the vines. You will now get the Burthorpe Vine seeds.
The White, Pink, and Red Rosebushes: Items needed for this part: Farming equipment. Go to Falador. Walk to the monastery or use your amulet of glory to get to Edgeville and walk from there. Speak to Brother Althric use the charm option, he well yell at you and tell you to throw the ring down the Edgeville well. Do so and return back to Althric. He will tell you that you can get the ring back using a hook and pole, but is glad that you parted with the ring. He will allow you to take seeds from all his rosebuds. Grab one from each type of rose. Alternatively, you can right-click on the ring and choose the "destroy" option. Afterwards you will have to go pick-pocket Dr. Fenkenstrain to get it back.
Regaining the Ring of Charos: Use a fly fishing rod or a normal fishing rod on the well and proceed to Catherby. This can take several tries. Or pick-pocket Dr. Fenkenstrain if you chose the destroy method.
Items for this part: Camelot teleport runes, ring of charos, farming equipment. Head southeast to the Catherby allotments. Speak with Dantaera. Once again use your charm options. She will tell you of the last, dying white tree on Ice Mountian. You will need to cut a shoot from it. Teleport to Falador and walk to white mountain. The white tree is right by the Oracle from the Dragon Slayer quest. Use your secateurs to cut a sapling from the tree and use it with the pot. Do not forget to water it. Plant all your seeds in their corresponding spots. You will need to use compost in the stone pots. The rest of the plots require no compost or water. When finished, speak with the queen and ask how you are going to move all the statues. She will give you a trolley which you must gruellingly push from both Falador and Lumbridge. Go to Falador and use the trolley on the statue in the town centre. After a brief cut-scene, push the trolley north. Once you exit Falador you will be teleported to Varrock. Push the statue all the way to the garden. Teleport to Lumbridge and go to the front of the duke's castle. (It is the one on the left, remember you want a "king") Push it across the bridge that leads to the road to Varrock and you will be teleported to Varrock. Push the statue to the garden and place it then speak to Ellamaria. Do not take too long in the statue stealing process. If your time is excessive the guards will find you and take the statue back leaving you to start all over again. Once all of the plants are finished growing, speak to Ellamaria. Retrieve her husband by using the charm options to get him to come to his garden. This completes the quest.
