Quests
Flower Quests
Starter quest arrives in the mail called “When the Rare Flowers Bloom” and instructs you to go speak with Avery Crabapple in Bree near the boar fountain. If you have never done them before there is a chain before you get to the repeatable “A Fist Full of Flowers” quest.
This event works similar to the anniversary festival in that there is a daily consumable item you have to pick up to do the quest. For this festival, you pick up a ticket from Gredlan Mugwort standing next to Avery in Bree and then turn to talk to Avery to pick up the repeatable flower quest. A ticket is only required for this repeatable quest; not the pre-requisite quests.
Love is Like a Flower
Quest Giver: Avery Crabapple (in Bree-town by the Boar Fountain)
Quest Level: 6+
Rewards: 90 copper
Repeat: No
Collect one Marigold, Violet and Primrose. Marigolds are found primarily outside Michel Delving. Violets are outside Breetown near the stone circle. Primroses are outside Celondim in Ered Luin.
A-courting Bree Will Go
Quest Giver: Avery Crabapple (in Bree-town by the Boar Fountain)
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 42 copper
Repeat: No
Talk to Barliman Butterbur and place a bouquet of flowers at a house in Bree-town (30.1S, 52.1W)
A Fern By Any Other Name….
Quest Giver: Avery Crabapple (in Bree-town by the Boar Fountain)
Quest Level: 6+
Rewards: 42 copper
Repeat: No
Collect the bouquet you left at the wrong door and ask Fern Coppersmith (30.2S 52.0W) for the correct address. Collect the sweets from the alley behind Avery and give them to him.
A Fist Full of Flowers
Quest Giver: Avery Crabapple (in Bree-town by the Boar Fountain)
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: Gift Box
Repeat: Daily
Collect as many flowers from “Patch of Flowers” as you can in 1 hour. Turn them into Gredlan Mugwort in Bree-town (30.3S, 51.2W) near Avery for a red, blue or green gift box.
Marigolds are found primarily outside Michel Delving in the Shire.
Violets are outside Breetown near the stone circle.
Primroses are outside Celondim in Ered Luin.
Note that to receive a gift box, you need 6 of each type of flower. Keep that in mind before you have the grand idea of only picking flowers in one location.
Your quest tracker will show you the area to search for the flowers and the areas are quite large. All flowers have a chance of being picked up from a patch of flowers but the locations listed above is the primary locale to pick them in larger quantities. The good news is the flowers count as tokens and go in your barter wallet rather than your inventory (this may be because I purchased the premium wallet).
If you want to continue to repeat this quest without waiting until the next day, you’ll have to buy another Ticket from the store (for 100 TP). It works a bit similarly to buying more picks during the Treasure-Hunt or Badges from the anniversary festival. You’re just buying a chance to pick up more flowers for gift boxes.
PRO TIP:
The delete key is default mapped to target items near you. The easiest way to find flowers is to run around tapping your delete key and waiting for a Patch of Flowers to be targeted.
For added assistance locating the flowers you have targeted, go to your options > combat options and turn on Directional Selection Indicator. This will place a small dotted line at your feet that points to the location of your target.
The boxes will largely contain fun items such as dyes, wall paint, tart recipes or cosmetics. One thing Ketani did notice is that blue dyes and paints were coming from blue boxes, pinks and reds from red boxes, etc. It may be coincidence but it seems to be a theme. This thread on the forums has folks reporting the items they’ve collected from the gift boxes.
The big prize from the flower gift boxes is a new steed, Steed of the Jester! This is a 68% speed 250 morale steed that jingles as you ride it. It has been reported as dropping for each color of gift box so it is just a random gift box reward.

Bree-land Hedge Maze
The hedge maze is east of the Bree Festival Grounds just past the horse race track.
Great map of the Festival Hedge Maze is available over at The Brasse. It should be a big help in completing the quests although it does not have the two quests that were added in 2011 shown. Don’t worry, the quests are simple enough to not have to find a specific spot on the map. Just seeing the layout will help.
The maze allows the use of speed buffs! For those not a hunter a speed boost could be obtained in several different fashions including but not limited to: Harbringer’s Cloak from Mirkwood Adventurer’s Pack, crafted jewelry that grants speed buff such as the Fine Agate Necklace of Quickness , VIPs can purchase boosts with destiny points and there are the run speed boosts in the LOTRO Store.
The quests do not require a speed boost to finish them so don’t feel like you need one. I was able to do them all on my regular speed minstrel.
Misplaced Companions
Quest Giver: Saelthalel (24.75S, 50.87W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
Six of Saelthalel’s friends are lost in the hedgemaze and she wants you to find them!
A Laugh at the Lost
Quest Giver: Gísi
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
This trickster dwarf wants you to hang up fake directions signs to keep the people in the maze lost a bit longer.
The Chicken Dash
Quest Giver: Buttercup North-took (24.78S, 50.88W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
There are loose chickens inside the maze that Buttercup wants you to catch before they escape. This quest is only available approximately every 45 minutes. A broadcast about chickens being loose is sent to the entire Bree-land area. That is the signal that this quest is available.
The Cloven Track
Quest Giver: Gil Plover (24.79S, 50.85W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: No
You are challenged to make it through the maze in under 15 minutes.
A Speedy Errand
Quest Giver: Gil Plover (24.79S, 50.85W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: No
Same objective as above to get through the maze in under 10 minutes.
A Fool’s Errand
Quest Giver: Gil Plover (24.79S, 50.85W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: 1 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
Same objective as above to get through the maze in under 3 minutes. This one becomes your repeatable daily quest.
The Green Challenge
Quest Giver: Tob Sandyman (24.80S, 50.86W)
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards: +700 with the Inn League
Selectable Rewards: Spring Leaf (x2), Inn League Sinister Keg
Repeat: Daily
This quest giver will only speak with you if you are a member of the Inn League! This one can get tricky because after finding the artifact requested you are slowed and are given 3 minutes to find the exit before ported away (as the Sinister Keg is known to do). This still puts a speed debuff on as part of it’s quest and will remove any speed increase you add such as hunter speed buffs. I did test this with my Harbringer’s Clock and after turning it in the Harbringer’s Cloak buff did return so it didn’t waste using your speed run items.
Terrible Tweens
Quest Giver: Emma Greenbush (24.8S, 50.8W)
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 2 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
Tweens are younger hobbits (normal hobbit size NPCs) running about shouting and generally disrupting normal maze activities. They tend to spawn in a dead end of the maze and run to another dead end where they de-spawn. Rings will appear on the mini-map for their location. There are many of them and you only need to catch 4. There is no timer. Just grab one as you find it.
Disorientation
Quest Giver: Birdie Thornthicket (24.8S, 50.8W)
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 2 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
You have 10 minutes to find and drink 6 dire brews that are scattered across the maze. These are simple mugs of beer that spawn at random points in the maze. Almost like an easter egg hunt. There’s a twist though. Dire brews are strong and will cause you to pass out and wake up in a random portion of the maze.
Duillond Stomp-A-Shrew
Entrance to the shrew stomping ground is behind the gazebo where the dance lessons happen inside a cave (24.7S, 93.2W).
Inside you’ll find an arena type area where probably there are a bunch of people running around frantically if a game is going on. There are several levels of the shrew game you can play, each one just a bit more difficult than the last. You can chose one pesky shrew type (leisurely, practiced or challenge) and the enormous shrew quest before the round begins. Each round last 3 minutes with 5 minutes between games.

Stomp-a-shrew — An enormous shrew
Quest Giver: Dinedhrin (Infuriated Gardner)
Quest Level:10+
Reward: 5 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Can participate in each game session.
Use the Enormous Boots to stop the Enormous Shrew (Only one of these spawn per round, so only one player can accomplish this per round.)
After accepting your quest, you need to go pick up your Boots of Quite-Imaginable Power from nearby crates. You must pick up the quest/boots each time. You do not have to put them on your feet but you will need to put them in your action bar so you can use them. When the game starts you must target and stomp nearby shrews for credit . For the challenge you will also need to plant the seedlings while stomping shrews to oblivion.
A Shortage of Boots
Quest Giver: Santmereth (Worried Gardener)
Quest Level: 10+
Reward: 2 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
First run of this quest you’ll need to visit Deluraw in Duillon (near the ovens) to get 3 sub-quests to collect flax plants, twine from the Celodim docks and cherry wood branches. On the repeat of this quest, there are no sub-quests, you just go out and collect the same 3 items.
How the Shire Shoos Shrews
Quest Giver: Bodo Burrows (Know-it-all)
Quest Level: 10+
Reward: 2 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
This quest leads you back to the farms of the Shire to get advice from expert Shire farmers on the best way to remove pesky shrews. Visit Cotton Farm, Sandson’s Farm and Samwise’s old Gaffer on Backshot Row. Be sure to read the text from the Hobbits

A Proper Festival
Quest Giver: Forlad (Annoyed Gardener)
Quest Level: 10+
Reward: 2 Spring Leaf
Repeat: Daily
Forlad is annoyed that all there seems to be to this festival is stomping shrews and requests you go collect followers for the stomping ground flower pots. The flowers can be found outside the shrew stomping area near Duillond. Once collected, return to the shrew stomping grounds to place them in the flower pots.
The Shire Bullroarer Celebrations
Most of the Shire quests are one time only quests. Meaning if you did it last year, you won’t get the quest again this year. Only repeatable open is the Bullroarer fence running challenge.

A Hobbit Among the Hedges
Quest Giver: Sorrel North-Took (29.84S, 71.55W)
Quest Level: 1+

Repeat: No
This quest is simply to move you towards Bree for the Hedge maze. You will not get this quest if you’ve already been to Bree and done these quests.

Quest Level: 6+
Rewards: 90 copper
Repeat: No
You are asked to go pick the needed clover so more Bullroarer’s Brew can be made for the celebration. Head north into the Greenfields and look for glowy patches of clover on the ground. Creatures around this area are level 11-13 so fairly safe for most.
Paying Your Respects
Quest Giver: Sigismond North-took (27.23S, 67.71W)
Quest Level: 6+
Rewards: 90 copper
Repeat: No
You are sent to the deliver the clover to the Golden Perch in Stock. You take it to Gunderic Grubb (31.98S 63.79W) and instructed to return to Brockenborings to place a tankard of ale near Bullroarer’s statue (just return to Sigismond). After placing your brew and talking to Sigismond again you’re instructed to go visit Tobias Brockhouse (27.24S, 67.25W) east of Brockenborings. He’s standing on a little stage.
Bullroarer’s Challenge
Quest Giver: Tobias Brockhouse (27.24S, 67.25W)
Quest Level: 6+
Rewards: 90 copper, 5 pints of Bullroarers Brew
Selectable Rewards: Wooden Keg, Bullroarer’s Tankard, Clover Patch, Greenfields Hat, Bullroarer’s Brew (x5)
Repeat: Daily
Behind the stage where Tobias stands you’ll notice a thin fencing. You are instructed to toast to Bandobras’s Health with the mugs near by and then walk the length of the fence without falling off. Don’t sweat it if you fall off as you can try again in about 20 seconds. You receive your rewards from back at Sigismond (not Tobias).
Also if you’re curious as to what the Greenfields Hat looks like, Sigismond is wearing one. The clover patch looks exactly like the patches you picked up off the ground. I went with the tankard myself! There is also the “Bullroarer’s Challenge – Advanced” quest which is the same except you must cross the fence in under 20 seconds! The rewards for this version are a choice of Inn League Keg or Bullroarer’s Brew (x10).
