After 5.1 nerfing the exchange of Spirit of Harmony to Golden Lotus, many people were up in the air about what seed to plant at their Tiller's farm, and you may have recently read that Enigma Seeds (which produce herbs) got a stealth-buff, possibly the better alternative for providing Golden Lotus.
I have been planting Enigma Seeds over the past 10 days or so, and every day so far I have gotten 4-6 Golden Lotus each day. On top of that, the other plots that aren't Lotuses are other herbs that I send off to my Scribe to mill into pigments. Below is a screenshot of my normal yield:
So not only do you get the 4-6 Golden Lotus, you get other herbs on top of that. When you plant Songbell Seeds on the other hand, you get 1.6 Spirits which turns into 3.2 Golden Lotus. So 4 Golden Lotus alone and you'd be better off. Add to that the other herbs and you're much better planting other seeds. On some servers vegetables may be the way to go, but the price per Golden Lotus (on average across servers) is currently: , which with the addition of the other herbs are worth more than vegetables (at 5-7 per plot).
If you haven't yet began grinding Tillers rep, now is certainly still a good time. The rep is a decent grind, and as far as gold making is concerned, is by far your best rep (minus the profession specific grinds). Cooking is also doing (semi) well for me currently, don't forget the Ironpaw Exchange!!
