You step into a pale yellow tent, and see several desks arranged around the inside, all of them covered in a disorganized array of parchment and various plant leaves, flowers, and berries. A young female hedgehog sits writing busily at one of these tables, and it is several minutes before she notices you standing in the entrance. Standing up and offering an ink stained paw, you notice a satchel slung on her shoulder and more plant material trailing from it. Smiling, she says, "Oh, are you here to help us?" Seeing your confused look, she chuckles and continues, "We healers are always on the look-out for new plants with healing abilities. If you've found one, you can tell us about it here." Handing you one of the sheaves from her desk, she says, "Here. Just fill this out, and we'll have all the information we need." With another friendly smile, she begins writing at her desk again.
You can use plants from the books, as long as you research their uses! For instance; you could send in Dogwart, but you need to look in the books to see what it does. You can also make up plants, and plants found in the books can be mixed with made-up plants(see Trilp Moss) to form other properties. These plants can be used in stories or in the infirmary, so you may want to read through them :)
