After this, you will now need to gather some new seeds which can only be obtained using your windbreaker. Go to the way-point and get the seeds from the chest located near the fat rat.
Now, go back to town and speak to the worm, then plant the seeds. Remember to place the Heartwood in the chest close to the tree. This enables the builders to place it down before you arrive.
The next batch of seeds required will be protected. To access the chest present in the area, all enemy Bodkins will have to be defeated.
Once this is done, go back and plant the seeds. One of the villagers will want you to gather some pure clean water, which can be found on the map. Go to the water and dive in, and sink towards the bottom.
Under the water, get towards the ruins to find a spring. Jump inside and collect water using your pot. Do not hold it to get the water, just press the button.
