Lesson 01/01 Notes: Introduction
Herbology is the study - along with the use of magical and non-magical plants. Plants may be studied for their medicinal, protective or educational purposes. It's important to be able to tell the difference between elder and holly wood when assessing an opponent and their wand in a duel (spotting weaknesses). Potioneers and healers need to tell the difference in plants to recognize their possible toxicity and healing properties.
