'''Professor Pomona Sprout''' (b. [[15 May]],[[1940s|1941]]) was a [[wizards|witch]] who worked as [[Head of Hufflepuff House]] and [[Professor|Head]] of the [[Herbology]] [[Herbology department|department]] at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]]. She attended the school in her youth, where she was [[Sorting ceremony|Sorted]] into [[Hufflepuff|Hufflepuff House]] and excelled at [[Herbology]]. Some time after her [[Seventh year|graduation]], Sprout returned to Hogwarts to teach.

Professor Sprout opposed [[Lord Voldemort]] during the [[Second Wizarding War]]. In [[1993]], she brewed the [[Mandrake Restorative Draught]] for those who were petrified by [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|Slytherin's Monster]]. She also opposed [[Dolores Umbridge]] and her tyranny over the school in the [[1995-1996 school year]], which the rest of the staff were happy to join her in doing, voted for the school to remain open after the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]], and assisted in ousting [[Severus Snape]] in [[1998]]. Sprout took a group of students to the battlements during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] and threw [[Devil's Snare]] and various other dangerous plants onto the invading [[Death Eaters]]. She ultimately survived the War and had retired by [[2017]], with [[Neville Longbottom]] replacing her in the post of [[Herbology]] teacher. Her life after that is unknown.

That's right, me, not some boring old Head of Herbology. Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin, Third Class, Honorary Member of the Dark Force Defence League, and five-time-winner of Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile Award -- but I don't talk about that. I didn't get rid of the Bandon Banshee by smiling at her!

Now, if you've come here, then presumably you know all about me. If so, then why not take a little quiz to test your knowledge? If, however, you're not feeling quite ready (and there is a lot to know) then just read up with my collected works, which include ever useful Gilderoy Lockhart's Guide to Household Pests, as well as thrilling tales like Travels with Trolls & Year with a Yeti, not to mention my bestselling autobiography, Magical Me!

So, remember, celebrity is as celebrity does, and never forget-- when I was twelve, I was just as much of nobody as you are now, reading this! Just keep at it and maybe someday you, too, will need a stack of signed photos wherever you go!

(Read more, you'll be glad you did...)
