Hogwarts Legacy Herbology guide – Seeds, combat plants, & pot sizes

Get growin'!

The Herbology class in Hogwarts Legacy teaches you how to plant, harvest, and use seeds, ingredients, and combat items. Throughout the campaign, you will attend Herbology classes and unlock the ability to grow your own plants in the Room of Requirement. This Hogwarts Legacy Herbology guide will help you with everything you need to start potting, growing, and harvesting plants.

To get started, you will want to purchase ingredient seeds from Magic Neep and combat item seeds from the Dogweed and Deathcap shop, both located in the outskirts of Hogsmeade. After purchasing seeds, go to the Spells and Tomes shop to purchase a pot spellcraft. To get large pots and medium pots for growing plants, you will need to purchase the spellcrafts for them at Spells and Tomes. The shops can be seen on the map below.
