Bree-land Hedge Maze Quests

Introductory Quests
A Hobbit Among the Hedges: Sorrel North-took (Shire Party Tree – 29.8S, 71.6W) asks you to find her sister Buttercup North-took (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) before you partake of the festivities yourself. This is an introductory quest that leads you from the Shire Party Tree to the Bree-land Hedge Maze.
Missing the Spring Fest: Help Mákr (Thorin’s Hall Inn) find out about his friend Gísi (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W), who departed for the Bree-land Hedge Maze. This is an introductory quest that leads you from Thorin’s Hall Inn to the Bree-land Hedge Maze.
Missing Ethuilwereth: Help Calendui (Duillond Festival Garden – 24.6S, 90.6W) find out about her elven friends who departed for the Bree-land Hedge Maze by seeking out Saelthaliel (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W). This is an introductory quest that leads you from the Duillond Festival Garden to the Bree-land Hedge Maze.
A Laugh at the Lost: Help Gísi (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) post 10 signs in the hedge maze.  [2 Spring Leaves]
Disorientation: Birdie Thornthicket (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) challenges you to drink 6 Dire Beers in the Hedge Maze within 10 minutes! They spawn randomly throughout the maze, so it’s best to find them by spamming your Delete button or whatever selects usable items in your game. Every time you drink, you’ll be ported to another random place in the maze. No need to try to find your way out, just find the next beer by spamming Delete again. There’s only a timer on finishing the beers, not exiting the maze, so take your time making your way out after you’ve had all six! I recommend doing this quest after you’ve done a couple others to familiarize yourself with the maze. That way, you won’t have a hard time finding your way out when you get ported to random locations in the maze. [2 Spring Leaves]
Misplaced Companions: Help Saelthaliel (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) find her 6 wandering elf friends. [2 Spring Leaves]
Terrible Tweens: Help Emma Greenbush (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) find 4 hobbit tweens, who are running all over the Hedge Maze! They are constantly moving, but you can see nearby hobbits on your mini map with a quest ring icon. [Red Spring Festival Box: 2 Spring Leaves, chance to drop Tome of the Dusty Shrew]
The Chicken Dash: Help Buttercup North-took (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.7S, 50.8Wcollect 2 chickens before they escape from the Hedge Maze. They are running around randomly in the maze, so it’s good to pick this up with another quest like Terrible Tweens if you can. Then you can catch two birds with one stone 😉 [1 Spring Leaf]
The Cloven Track (one-time quest): Gil Plover (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9Wchallenges you to find your way to the exit of the maze in less than 5 minutes. This quest introduces you to the repeatable quest, A Fool’s Errand. I recommend doing this series of quests after you’ve done a couple other quests that are not timed in order to familiarize yourself with the maze and the fastest route out. [1 Spring Leaf]
A Speedy Errand: Gil Plover (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9Wchallenges you to find your way to the exit of the maze in less than 3 minutes.  [1 Spring Leaf]
A Fool’s Errand: Gil Plover (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9Wchallenges you to find your way to the exit of the maze in less than 1 minute now. [1 Spring Leaf]
The Green Challenge (for Inn League members only): Tob Sandyman (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.8Wchallenges you to find an Inn League artifact and then make your way to the exit of the maze. Once you find the artifact near the center of the maze in the platformed and tented area with revelers, you will be given 50% run speed. From there, you will need to find your way to the exit in 2 minutes and 30 seconds. I recommend doing this quest after you’ve done a couple others to familiarize yourself with the maze.

When the Rare Flowers Bloom: Eliza Greythorn (Bree-land Hedge Maze – 24.8S, 50.9W) directs you to speak with Avery Crabapple (Bree-town Market Square – 30.3S, 51.3W) to help him collect flowers.
Love is Like a Flower (one-time quest series): Help Avery Crabapple (Bree-town Market Square – 30.3S, 51.3W) find a marigold, violet, and primrose for the woman he has been admiring. Marigolds can be found near Michel Delving, violets outside the West Gate of Bree, and primroses in Ered Luin. This quest series is an introductory to A Fistful of Flowers, which will be a repeatable daily quest.
A-courting Bree Will Go: Avery Crabapple (Bree-town Market Square – 30.3S, 51.3W) sends you to Barliman Butterbur (Prancing Pony, Bree-town – 29.6S, 51.2W) to find the address of the woman he admires. Her house is on the Scholar’s Stair and you should place the flowers in a vase there.
A Fern by Any Other Name…: Help Avery Crabapple (Bree-town Market Square – 30.3S, 51.3W) collect the bouquet from the vase, for it is the wrong address, and ask a neighbor for the correct address. The neighbor you find is actually the woman Avery admires: Fern Coppersmith (Bree-town – 30.2S, 52.0W). She will send you to find sweets at a house in the alley behind Avery and ask you to deliver them to him as a token of her affection.
A Fistful of Flowers: Help Avery Crabapple (Bree-town Market Square – 30.3S, 51.3W) and Gredlan Mugwort (Bree-town Market Square – 30.4S, 51.2W) to gather flowers, which will be used to create bouquets for other suitors to give to their sweethearts. This quest is only available once a day after you’ve picked up a festival ticket from Gredlan. After you hand the ticket to Avery, you will have 1 hour each day to gather as many flowers as you can, so don’t pick up the quest until you can set aside a whole hour if you want to make the most use of the time. Patches of flowers are found near Michel Delving, outside the West Gate of Bree, and in Ered Luin. They can yield any combination of flowers, but usually marigolds are in the Shire, violets are in Bree, and primroses are in Ered Luin. The flowers you collect can be bartered for horses, horse cosmetics, and flower gift boxes that give random house items, cosmetics, dyes, and farmer or cook recipes.
