Professor Sprout's chamber consisted of Devil's Snare which would try to kill anyone it strangles. The key to get out of her chamber is to use bright lights. Her first lessons with the first years (including Harry Potter) revolved around the identifying of different plants around the grounds as well as Devil's Snare, which Hermione Granger recognized whilst they searched the Philosopher's Stone's chambers.

After Harry Potter and Ron Weasley crashed Ron's Dad's Flying Ford Angila into the Whomping Willow, Albus Dumbledore gave the job of repairing the branches to Professor Sprout. She disliked the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Gilderoy Lockhart, after he repeatedly told her how to do her job as well a take Harry Potter out of class on one occasion. During the attacks on the students after the Chamber of Secrets was opened, Professor Sprout was made in charge of growing new mandrakes to create a draught to restore the petrified students to their original state. Once the mandrakes were matured, the draught was made and all who were petrified returned back to normal again, Albus Dumbledore was very grateful for Professor Sprout's efforts.
