Greenhouse Three is where Herbology classes are taught to every student, except first-years, because it is used to house several spices of magical plants that were deemed too dangerous for them to handle.[1] The room has more dangerous species, such as the Venomous Tentacula, as it is for the advanced students. First year students take the class in Greenhouse One, which has no dangerous material.[2]


The greenhouse has four areas:
