Blizzard has absolutely filled the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands zones with collectible items, from mounts and battle pets to transmogs and items. As far as mounts go, Ardenweald has more than its fair share.
You can find plenty of mounts here, some of which present a small challenge – the Shimmermist Runner is surrounded by elites and a puzzle, and the Arboreal Gulper is guarded by a humongous frog with an enormous amount of health.
If these challenges sound like a bit more than you want to bite off at the moment, there’s an easier mount to obtain as well. The Wildseed Cradle, which players who quested through Ardenweald already will recognize, is as simple as grabbing some items.
You begin this by going to Tirna Vaal in Ardenweald and talking to Twinklestar, a fairy that’s bemoaning the loss of her gardening tools. If you don’t do this, that’s fine too, as you can still obtain the five items to return to her – it’s simply useful to have her hints and to know where to return to.
The five items she requests are obtained on the other end of Ardenweald in an area called the Garden of the Night, which Twinklestar explains to have left the items behind as they fled.

These items are the Diary of the Night, the Gardener’s Hammer, the Gardener’s Basket, the Gardener’s Flute, and the Gardener’s Wand. Obtaining all five allows you to combine them into Twinklestar’s Gardening Toolkit, which is then turned in to the fairy to obtain the mount.
The Diary of the Night can be found on an elevated platform on the tree, resting on a table. Gardener’s Hammer is located inside of a nearby cart. Near the fountain’s edge on the ground, players can find the Gardener’s Basket.
If you’re ready for combat, the Gardener’s Flute is found nearby with a group of spriggans guarding it. You’ll need to take them out – or find some other way to incapacitate them – to loot it. Finally, the Gardener’s Wand is located under a nearby cart, which can be a bit hard to see.
With all five, combine them and bring them back to Twinklestar. This will allow you to see the Cache of the Moon treasure behind them, which has a few items inside, the Wildseed Cradle mount being one of them.
And it’s as easy as that! This little scavenger hunt requires a minimal amount of combat and no difficult puzzle, simply right clicking a few items and bringing them back. If you’re having difficulty finding the items, there’s dozens of video walkthroughs on YouTube already waiting to help.
