Mandrakes are one of the most memorable deadly plants from the Harry Potter franchise and can be found in Hogwarts Legacy. The best Mandrakes location is in Hogsmeade, where you can purchase seeds and fully grown plants at the Dogweed and Deathcap shop.

Therefore, it is essential to collect as many as possible if you want to make progress in Hogwarts Legacy.

Buying Mandrake Seeds and Fully Grown Plants

At Dogweed and Deathcap, players can purchase both mandrake seeds and also buy fully grown plants. Mandrake seeds cost 800 gold, while fully developed plants cost 500 gold.

With the seeds, players can grow their own mandrakes in the herbology classroom or in the Forbidden Forest. It only takes one set of seeds for an infinite number of plants, making it a more cost-effective option than buying a fully grown plant every time.

Once a player has grown some, they’re able to use it for various purposes, such as solving puzzles with its cry, or brewing potions and casting spells with it.
