"A comprehensive botanical A-Z of magical herbs and fungi for easy plant identification and application"
—Back cover blurb[src]

One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi was written by the Herbologist and Hogwarts Headmistress Phyllida Spore, and, as its name implies, covers a thousand different varieties of herbs and fungi found in the wizarding world.

A copy of this book costs two Galleons at Flourish and Blotts.[1]

History

During the 1980s, Nymphadora Tonks had to study this book in order to pass a special test from Professor Pomona Sprout in order to get out of the infinite detention she earned from stealing Sprout's largest Venomous Tentacula and mistakenly tossing it on Professor Severus Snape.[2]

During the 1991–1992 school year, this book was one of the required texts for first year students.[3] It was a textbook used in Potions and Herbology classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Copies of this book can be found at Flourish and Blotts and the Hogwarts Library.
