Default Greenhouses



Are you here to spend some time with all your green friends? Maybe you’ll spot Professor June somewhere in there tending to her favourites. If she sees you - she would love to hand you a slug repellent to help de-slug the school cabbage patch. If not, then take a look around - the battle last term has done a number on the greenhouses but Professor June is slowly working to better them. She has even set up a lovely little corner with a bench in greenhouse one - maybe you’ll be inspired to do your Herbology homework there while watching the color changing roses, and enjoying the sun.

OOC: Here's a basic guide of what you might find in each greenhouse; please remember to play realistically based on your character's age and skill level!

Second Year
Default For Dahlia :)

Ollie wandered around the planters of the greenhouse. She was supposed to ask for a spot to plant last year, but in all the hustle and bustle of all her classes, she never to around to it. She wanted to ask this year but was looking to see what others had growing. She was still disappointed to not see anything of her own growing, but she knew she’d get over it. She was excited to ask this term and see all the magical plants she could grow herself.

Pepper, her cat, had come with her to get some fresh air. Plus Pepper loved basing in the sunlight while Ollie looked around. She found herself in the greenhouse more than last term, just to hang out. Sometimes she’ll bring books in and hang out in the corner. Pepper was always happy to tag along.

Dahlia was no stranger when it came to the greenhouses. It was one of the first places anyone would likely look for her if they needed to find her in a hurry. First the barns and then here. Creatures and plants were her passion and she was known to frequent these places on a daily basis.

So it was strictly by routine, even given with how early in the term it still was, that the third headed into the greenhouse the first chance she got. There was things to be done and there was no time to be messing around. She even brought along her trust helper, Sir Frederik, who was riding along on her shoulder as per usual.

Tugging the door to the greenhouse open, she wandered inside making her way around all of the other students plants to where her spot was. It was during that walk that she spotted a familiar face and smiled. "Ollie, hi. Are you going to be planting something today?" Or was she in here to enjoy the quiet and comfort that the plants tended to bring.

Ollie turned to the door as she heard it open. It was Dahila's friendly face that she turned to see. She remembered that girl was into plants and gardening as much as she was. "Oh, hi." She turned to look at the rest of the student's plots. "No, no I'm just looking around right now." She sighed. She wondered where Dahlia's plants were an what she might have planted. She seemed to know a lot about herbology and such, so Ollie imagined she had a decent array.

"Where's your plants?" Maybe Dahlia could cone with Ollie to ask about a plot to plant in. Surely she had a decent relationship with the herbology professor.

Ah, so Ollie was only looking around right now. Nothing at all wrong with that. She did that all the time herself. "That's nice. It's really relaxing being among all the plants and flowers, hm?" Lia smiled softly.

"Mine are over here," she nodded her head towards an area up ahead just a little further from where they were currently standing. "I don't have have a whole lot still here right now since I took some with me at the end of last term but I did leave a few here." What she had done was left the more fussy ones behind as she didn't want to uproot them, make them upset and than have to spend all summer making them happy only to upset them once more to bring them back. It would've been a challenge and she was positive that she could've handled it but why put her plants through that unnecessarily?

Dahlia smiled and gestured for Ollie to walk with her to where her plot of flowers and plants were. What she mainly had was her little toadstool that she had gotten when she had met Ollie for the first and various flowers and plants. "I was going to be tending to these ones here this morning and adding some new ones. Would you like to help?"

She couldn’t have agreed more. Ollie always felt peace and quiet, relaxed and almost nurtured in a way when she was gardening. It was really nice to know that Lia had felt the same.

Dahlia’s plot was a lot less than Ollie had imagined, but once she explained the situation it made sense. She wondered if the professors stayed at the school. Did Professor June water and care for all the plants whist the students were away on break, or did the school have house-elves do it? Ollie hoped it was the professor who stayed and helped. If she was going to be planting a little garden of her own, she preferred someone who was very skilled to look over her babies. ”They look very well taken care of.” She gave the girl a soft smile. She liked the energy that Lia had: calm, comforting; Ollie always felt relaxed when she and Dahlia talked.

”Yes, I’d love to help. It’d be nice to get used to dealing with them first before starting my own.” It had been a while since she actually planted something. All her plants at home had died since her father didn’t water or care for them, and she didn’t bother buying and planting new ones over the break. She figured she’d need to get back into the swing of things with them.

Quinn was a bit shocked that Eden had actually agreed to come to the greenhouses with them, seemingly without some ulterior motive. Not that their best friend always had an ulterior motive to do something... but Quinn knew she often was up to something.

They wore both purple and pink bracelets on their wrist today, which was still something they were getting used to themselves. They were able to make the bracelets out of colored twine they found at their Gram's over the summer. Quinn figured it would be easier for everyone if they could just look at their wrist and know, and it would save them the trouble of getting asked twenty times a day. They had only been around people that knew about their identity for less than a month, so being referred to by their correct pronouns had been, well... like a dream, almost. This time last year they wouldn't have even dreamed of something like this. But a lot can change in a year.

They hadn't felt this sort of comfort and acceptance in a long time. They were trying to savor every moment of it.

So now they were in Greenhouse One, waiting for Eden to come in and help them with the plants. They had been able to help their Gram with the garden this summer, but it was nothing like caring for magical plants. Quinn had actually missed it, a far cry from first year when they were afraid of the flutterby bushes. They started filling two watering pails as they waited for Eden, humming a little tune as they did.

The thing about Eden was that happiness was difficult for her to come by. She could find moments of calm and "flow" in her potions, running, and painstaking beauty rituals...but actual happiness? Peace with herself, true relief from the constant restlessness she felt? Rare. So whatever it was in Quinn that made her shoulders drop and the corner of her lips upturn - it was magnetic.

If one couldn't find your their happiness, what was the harm in cultivating someone else's instead? This year Quinn seemed to have extra to go around, too. So Eden diligently trudged to the greenhouses, even though she hated getting dirt near her nails. It remained to be seen if this would ever happen again - friendship or not, Eden was a plant-killer. The first thing she did upon entering was look at her friend's wrist - it was a new habit, but Eden was catching on quick.

"This isn't where they keep the cool plants,"
was the first thing Eden said to her, but the tiny smile on the third year's face betrayed the fact that she didn't really mind.

Quinn looked up as Eden came in and greeted her with a smile. They'd just finished filling up the pails and were setting them down on the counter. "Well, I think these plants are pretty cool. And you would screw around and get your arm bitten off if we were around the plants you thought were cool," they chuckled.

Quinn knew how much Eden hated Herbology, so they genuinely did appreciate her helping out and keeping them company...they might actually have to take part in one of her harebrained schemes as thanks. But they wouldn't offer it freely, Eden would have to figure out she had that coupon to cash on her own.

They picked up one of the pails and made their way over to the Honking Daffodils. "I mean, just look at these daffodils! They honk! I think that's pretty cool. You wouldn't be able to see—or hear—these just anywhere, you know," they said as they started watering them. "And they don't eat people!"

Eden shrugged. "First off, I would not. Second, they make potions for re-growing appendages." Unpleasant potions.

FYI, Kingsley, Eden didn't need coupons. You end up accompanying her anyway. Sucka.

Sigh. "Hello, Daffodils. Or...honk, honk, honk." She honked in various pitches, could they hear her? "What do I need to do?"

"So they wouldn't bite your arm off but you're still worried about appendage-regrowth potions. Makes sense," Quinn teased. Teasing Eden has become somewhat of a preferred pastime of theirs because she's short and it's funny when she defends herself.

Quinn likes to think they only participate in the ones that aren't likely to get them killed. Which feels like not many of them.

They stifled laughter as Eden honked at the daffodils. "Um... well, not that. These are pretty much just... regular daffodils. Except they honk. So you can treat them like a regular daffodil—just water 'em! But, you know, not so much that the soil gets waterlogged, just damp. Overwatering can do just as much harm as not watering at all," they said, holding up their finger in a teacherly fashion. They sprinkled water over the daffodils like second nature. "These are already planted, so it's not like we have to mulch the soil or dig them up or anything."

No digging. Thanks be to whatever ruled the cosmos. She looked down at her navy-black ombre nails in relief. As for the sass? "Plan A is no limb loss. Plan B is no limb loss with extra steps."

She also pulled up a stool and set her watering tin down on the ground. It was good when Quinn got to rambling about the plants. Less time for labor. Before Quinn could even question what she was doing, Eden pulled a whole raw tomato out of her bag as well as a potions vial filled with salt and pepper mixed together. "Does it eat? I have potatoes too." She didn't know how to treat a regular daffodil, either.

She tilted her head to the side as she watched her friend effortlessly care for the plants. Maybe she was just here for moral support? Fine with her.

Quinn laughed and rolled their eyes. "Solid plans. A solider one might be to not put yourself in a situation to get your limbs ripped off, but that's just a thought."

Their brows furrowed at Eden's comment. "N—um, what? No, they don't eat, they make their own food, Eden. They're... they're plants. You know. Photosynthesis? And what do you mean too—" Their voice cut out as they turned around to Eden, watching her with her raw tomato and salt and pepper.

They simply stared for a moment, saying nothing. They shouldn't be shocked by Eden's eating habits by now, but somehow she always managed to outdo herself. It was impressive in the worst way. "Are. Are you going to put salt and pepper on a raw tomato. And eat it like an apple." It was phrased like a question but it was not asking. Because Quinn knew the answer. They wish they didn't. "Do.... you also have raw potatoes." They knew the answer again.

"Well, I've been living my life how I want with no missing limbs yet," Eden pointed out.

She rolled her eyes at Quinn's explanation of photosynthesis. It sounded like they were choking on their own disbelief. "Calm down. I just thought maybe magical plants were cooler and could eat real food." Oooh, that might trigger their plant-loving friend. Eden sort of hoped so. It was funny when they nerd-malfunctioned. "Are we going to be caring for any plants that can eat solids?"

Eden knew her snack choices often disgusted her friend, and so had of course developed a progressively more relaxed definition of what constituted a snack in response. It served the dual purpose of broadening her food horizons and grossing Quinn out. "It's really good - I can slice you a wedge?"

Another eye roll. "You can't eat raw potatoes, Quinn. It'll upset your stomach."

Lia knew her little plot wasn't much right now but it would be soon. Real soon. All it needed was some seedlings and a whole lot of love. Both of which she would be giving to it today. Then from here on out it would her tending to each and every little plant and flower. It would be up to her to ensure they received all of the proper care and nutrients that they all needed. "Yes, they do. Professor Flamsteed makes sure everything is tended to while we all aren't here." Which was very much appreciated.

"Great, we can borrow some tools from one of the cabinets if we need to." She smiled at Ollie glad that the slightly younger girl had agreed to help. Normally she liked to take care of her plants on her own but she knew Ollie felt the same way about gardening as she did. "I do have gloves and things in my bag if you want to use those too, I don't mind." Lia didn't mind getting her hands dirty. Kneeling down she set her bag on the ground beside her to take out her things, gloves, little containers of seedlings in dirt.

"Are we going to be caring for any plants that can eat solids?"

Eden knew her snack choices often disgusted her friend, and so had of course developed a progressively more relaxed definition of what constituted a snack in response. It served the dual purpose of broadening her food horizons and grossing Quinn out. "It's really good - I can slice you a wedge?"

Another eye roll. "You can't eat raw potatoes, Quinn. It'll upset your stomach."
Quinn rolled their eyes. Why couldn't Eden just like normal plants that didn't actively try to kill her? "Regular plants are super cool, actually. You just don't have the patience for them. And the only reason we're alive right now is because plants make their own food. They are the originators of food. Plants that need to eat things are not as cool because they're almost like regular animals at that point. Why would you eat food when you could just make it? It seems counterintuitive." They sighed, coming off their rant. "But there are Fanged Geraniums at the back."

Quinn grimaced. "I, uh... I'm alright. I usually like my tomato with other things. Like pasta. Or a sandwich. Or a salad. You know. How normal people eat them. Sometimes I feel like you're just trying to get a rise out of me with the stuff you eat," they said, turning back to the daffodils and watering another section, causing a little uproar of honks.

"Okay, I was aware that eating raw potatoes would upset your stomach, but I figured either you weren't or you simply didn't care. I wouldn't put it past you," they said with an accusatory point. But if they weren't raw... "Wait, so...what kind of potatoes do you have?"

"Yes, they do. Professor Flamsteed makes sure everything is tended to while we all aren't here." Which was very much appreciated.

"Great, we can borrow some tools from one of the cabinets if we need to." She smiled at Ollie glad that the slightly younger girl had agreed to help. Normally she liked to take care of her plants on her own but she knew Ollie felt the same way about gardening as she did. "I do have gloves and things in my bag if you want to use those too, I don't mind." Lia didn't mind getting her hands dirty. Kneeling down she set her bag on the ground beside her to take out her things, gloves, little containers of seedlings in dirt.
Okay, good. Ollie was very happy to hear that all the plants were taken care of while the students were away. “That’s nice. I think I’d worry about leaving my plants alone if no one took care of them.” That was like if she left Pepper without anyone to care for her. Speaking of, she looked back at where the fluffy cat had just been. Thankfully she was still there just basking in the sunlight. Good girl She thought with a nod. How cool would it have been if animals or pets could read minds.

She shook her head. She never really used gloves unless she was removing the patch of poison ivy that grew up the bricks on the back of her house. She didn’t mind getting her hands dirty either, and she actually enjoyed scrubbing all the dirt off afterward and watching all of it wash away. “I’m alright. Just let me know where you want me.” She knelt down beside Lia to help.

Eden took a peppery bite of her tomato while Quinn went on about plants. Mission successful.

She was just hopping off her stool to go inspect these fanged geraniums her friend spoke of, snack still in hand, when Quinn came for her eating habits for what felt like the billionth time. Eden laughed. "Do you think our ancestors just whipped up fresh pasta and sauce every time they were hungry and saw a tomato?" She tapped her temple with the same hand she held her salt and pepper in. "You wouldn't say anything if it was an apple. A tomato is even technically a fruit."

Aw. The honks were cute. Maybe Eden would actually help more often if the plants stayed cute and interesting.

The finger pointed at her earned them a dramatic eyebrow raise. "One, get your hand out my face," Eden gestured with her eyeballs at the offending finger. "Two, they're au gratin. I made them last night."

Lia nodded her head in agreement. "I wouldn't have left anything behind if no one was around at all to at least check-in on things here." What she planted, she cared about and she didn't just want to leave it behind to die. She followed her friends gaze over to the cat and smiled. "Aaww, hello there." Such a cute little cat!

"Great if you change your mind feel free to use whatever you like. I brought these from home.. I already planted them and got them growing a bit so all they need is to be moved from the containers to my plot." Some were tiny and barely sprouting at all while others had leaves and roots all over the place and others were starting to bloom. "The containers are labeled too."

She used her fingers to start digging a small hole in the dirt big enough for one of the plants.

And still, maybe our ancestors, like... I dunno... cooked tomatoes? Or put them in a salad? Or something? They might not have just eaten them like... that. And why with salt and pepper??" They were still very confused about the salt and pepper. "And I know that tomato is a fruit but it's different!"

Quinn's face dropped again when they learned about the potatoes. They dropped their hand limply back at their side. "You... have potatoes au gratin on your person..? Please... don't tell me they're in a sandwich baggie..." Another grimace spread across their face. "Did... you bring utensils???"

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

It was a beautiful day to plant some...er plants. At least that's what Malachi Trent would keep telling himself as he made his way down to Greenhouse One to meet the board and hopefully a healthy portion of the school population. Not all were keen to turn up when things weren't mandatory and that was typically okay. Harder to get productive work done with whiners anyhow.

This time, though, when he was trying to show solidarity in the face of the board, he was amenable to even the grouchiest showing up.

The Headmaster nodded politely to the board members already there, taking a look at all they'd brought. Many beautiful flowers, some he already knew would look brilliant over by the pathways--perhaps those there would go good by the lake.

He would wait for the others to arrive but already knew this would be an eventful day.




Did she care about flowers and how they looked around Hogwarts? Not really, but after being holed up in the castle for the last few days, Emmerson realised she could actually use some fresh air and something easy to do. As a bonus, the professors might see how delightful she truly was and stop fighting her so hard when she wanted skip one lousy class.

Helpful Gryffindor; synonyms, really.

"Afternoon, Headmaster. How many points do we get per plant? Can't have Ravenclaw steal our trophy a second time." She was a firm believer in the Great Hall being scarlet and gold at the end of each school year."[/b]

"I can guard the door for you, make sure none of them get in, then it'll be okay to aware points."

Was she going to say anything to board members gathered? She was still thinking about it. None had said anything to her.

Ash was here(against her better judgement). Did she like gardening? Not really... Did she like the board? Absolutely not. Did she like Trent? nope. Did she like Cambridge, who was currently telling Trent to make the house cup biased? NO. But... some of her friends would be here, and she heard there were refreshments. It wasn’t mandatory either, which meant going was probably okay. And she needed the fresh air and sunlight... whatever. The point was, Ashley Fox was here and she fully expected everything to go wrong.

She walked over to Trent, trying to make her face resemble something like a smile. It really ended up as a frown. She never smiled at him. “Hello Headmaster. I love those flowers.” She did NOT like the board members. If there was something wrong with these flowers, she’d never forgive them. She really did love flowers.

She walked towards the flowers and looked at all of them. Cool. Pretty. Etc. Her real reason for walking away was so that she could stop hearing Cambridge. Also because she wanted someone to tell her what to do with the flowers. She wasn’t a gardener or anything.

This was going to be huge and crowded and Claudine knew it. Then it sort of was a good thing that her social battery had recently been recharged. She brought herself down to the Greenhouses. The notice on the board hadn’t said if they needed to bring along in particular so she was here with just herself. The Board members got a suspicious look from her - she didn’t really trust them. She quickly diverted her attention to the flowers. So many. And they were all so pretty. What a perfect sight to make a sketch of!

Spotting Ash, the Slytherin drifted towards her. As she did, Claudine passed Trent and Emmerson. “Hi, Professor. Emmerson.” They both got a quick smile before they were left to continue their conversation.Ash. Pretty, aren’t they? Wonder if there’ll be any left over. I’d love to take one to my dorm.” In a neat little vase, of course.

"No guarding necessary, Miss Cambridge," Kamran said, stepping into the greenhouses before any sort of security measures could be established. Not that this particular Gryffindor would have any reason to want to bar him access, no, definitely not. "This project is for everyone."

He noted Fox here already too, and Blaze, nodding in mild approval. To the board members, a lift of the hand in greeting, and to Trent, "Afternoon, Headmaster Trent. Nice day for it." Too nice to spend too much of it in the greenhouses, no offence to June, because it was nice in here too. Outdoorsy to the core, Kamran was already itching to get back out there, with an armful of new plants for that whole beautification business.

Seeing the notice in the Ravenclaw commons had given Evan pause, because they last time he'd gotten involved in a School Beautification project, he'd been unknowingly assisting in drugging the castle with calming draught - and this time around there wasn't even bread as an incentive. But then he remembered this was going to be his fun year, and while perhaps this would not be considered... fun, it was an excuse to hang out with more of his peers that he probably hadn't had much opportunity to even get to know before.

So he was here, heading into Greenhouse one and seeing the small collection of people already gathered. He could hear Emmerson's words about the House Cup and blocking the door from Ravenclaws, so he said a soft "Too late" as he entered. The Board Members then got a collective polite nod before he turned to offer his greetings to the faculty already gathered. "Hello, Headmaster. Professor Kazmi." He didn't bother with any attempt at pleasantries or small talk, it was not his forte. And despite not really knowing her, Evan offered a greeting to Cambridge as well, "Hi Emmerson" before taking his leave to head towards Claudine and Ash. People he did already know and was far more comfortable with.

The other Ravenclaw and the Slytherin got a small smile from him as he approached. "Hi guys. Think the plants also will have calming draught mixed in?" It was honestly an attempt at humor, as he didn't think the same thing would happen twice but he tried to keep his comment low anyways to keep the board from hearing it.
