"Three times a week they went out to the greenhouses behind the castle to study Herbology, with a dumpy little witch called Professor Sprout, where they learned how to take care of all the strange plants and fungi, and found out what they were used for."
— Usage of the Hogwarts greenhouses[src]

The Hogwarts greenhouses are where Herbology classes are taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1] During the 1996–1997 school year, the greenhouses were also used by the Potions Club.[2]

The greenhouses have statues of long, serpentine dragon statues running along the peaked roofs.[3] They are home to many exotic and magical plants including some that are extremely rare, difficult to cultivate and maintain, or even dangerous, such as Mandrakes[4] Venomous Tentacula[4][5] or Snargaluffs.[6]

Behind the scenes

  • In the books and video game adaptations of books 1-4, the Herbology Greenhouses are located across the Hogwarts grounds from the castle. In the films and later video games, they are nestled in an open-roofed wing of the castle. The pavilion is still accessed from a door to the grounds, although there is also a door in one of the greenhouses that leads to the Charms corridor.
