Wild Spring Seeds In Stardew Valley – A Quick Guide

Wild seeds are very useful for making some extra gold for your pockets in Stardew Valley, especially in the early game. Generally, wild seeds produce crops that can be foraged in the corresponding season that it is planted. 

So instead of producing the usual Spring crops such as Strawberries, Green Beans, Cauliflower, or Potatoes, Spring wild seeds will produce a random Spring forageable!

In this article, we will go over these Wild Spring Seeds in depth. These seeds can be crafted or even obtained through other means in the game, which can become much more lucrative than you may think.

Wild Spring Seeds are craftable in the Crafting Menu in Stardew Valley


Aside from crafting the Wild Spring Seeds, you can make them by using the Seed Maker, receive them as a reward in the Skull Cavern and Community Center or purchase it from the Desert Trader or Traveling Cart

  • Crafting – The crafting recipe unlocks after Foraging level 1; Ingredients include one Wild Horseradish, Daffodil, Leek, and Dandelion each; every craft gives you ten Wild Spring Seeds.
  • Seed Maker – Placing a Wild Horseradish in a Seed Maker yields 1-3 Wild Spring Seeds.
  • The Community Center – Completing the Spring Foraging Bundle in the Crafts Room rewards you with 30 Wild Spring Seeds.
  • The Traveling Cart – The Traveling Merchant can sell you some Spring Seeds on a random range of 105-1,000g.
  • The Desert Trader – On Saturdays, the trader will offer an exchange of 2 Summer Seeds for the Spring Seeds.
  • Skull Cavern – Treasure Rooms have a random chance to have 5-20 Spring Seeds in a chest.


Wild Spring Seeds grow the same crops that are used to craft them, which are the Spring forageables! All types of Wild Seeds give each forageable of its corresponding season an equal chance of being grown, so it’s good to plant lots of them!

  • Daffodil – “A traditional spring flower that makes a nice gift.”
  • Dandelion – “Not the prettiest flower, but the leaves make a good salad.”
  • Leek – “A tasty relative of the onion.”
  • Wild Horseradish – “A spicy root found in the spring.”

Tip: Wild Seeds are not attacked by Crows, making Scarecrows unnecessary!

Gifting Wild Spring Seeds

Wild Spring Seeds themselves are a disliked item by all giftable villagers and will cost you -20 friendship points on a normal day (excluding the villager’s birthday and the Feast of the Winter Star Secret Santa Event). 

Giftable Villagers include: Abigail, Alex, Caroline, Clint, Demetrius, Dwarf, Elliot, Emily, Evelyn, George, Gus, Haley, Harvey, Jas, Jodi, Kent, Krobus, Leah, Leo, Lewis, Linus, Marnie, Maru, Pam, Penny, Pierre, Robin, Sam, Sandy, Sebastian, Shane, Vincent, Willy, and The Wizard


Wild Spring Seeds are only involved in one other crafting recipe, and that is the Tea Sapling. The Tea Sapling recipe can be earned through the mail after Caroline‘s 2-heart friendship event. These saplings produce Tea Leaves, which can then be used to make cups of tea in your kitchen by cooking!

Tea Sapling

  • Wild Seeds (Any)(2), Fiber (5), and Wood (5)
  • “Takes 20 days to mature. Produces tea leaves during the final week of each season, except winter. No watering necessary!”
  • Sells for 500g


Unlike other crops, Wild Seeds are affected by your foraging skill level instead of your farming level. This influences the likelihood of harvesting higher quality forageable crops. However, since wild seed harvests are affected by the foraging skill, then that means that its professions affect it too!

By using the Botanist Profession, all forageables are of Iridium quality when picked up. This not only reduces the cost of using quality fertilizers, but also can give you record profits easily!

Wild Spring Seeds themselves can also give you a profit without needing to plant anything. One craft of Spring Seeds gives you ten Seeds that sells for 350g in total. This sells for way more than the set of forageables at regular quality, which sells for just 180g! Even a set of gold quality ingredients to craft the seeds only sells for 270g. The only set quality that beats the seeds themselves is when using the Botanist Profession, selling for 360g, which is still not much of a difference.
