A willow seedling is created by sowing a willow seed in a plant pot filled with soil with a gardening trowel, granting 1.2 Farming experience. Once watered, it will turn into a willow seedling (w), which will grow into a willow sapling. However, while the seedling is growing into a sapling, it is possible to salvage the seed from the plant pot, granting another 1.2 Farming experience. Salvaging the seed can fail, but uncommonly. A willow sapling requires level 30 Farming to plant in a tree patch.
