Where to find Mandrakes in Hogwarts Legacy: Buy em (Method 1)
Buying Mandrakes rather than growing them is expensive, but if you need one in a pinch you can buy one from the following places.
Dogweed and Deathcap plant shop
The most reliable source of Mandrake roots is from the Dogweed and Deathcap, a shop in Hogsmeade that lies near the edge of the village. The shop is just on the outskirts of the Hogsmeade map.
You can see the position of the shop highlighted with the gold circle in the image above (it is marked with a mushroom icon).
Besides fully-grown Mandrakes, you can also buy Mandrake seeds from the Dogweed and Deathcap, which will allow you to grow your own an infinite number of times. We’ll discuss this further in Method 3.
Pop up vendors
In the areas around Hogwarts you will occasionally find pop-up vendors that become visible on your mini-map as you approach their location (marked by a pile of coins). You can also frequently (though not always) buy Mandrakes from these.

The most obvious place you can find them is at the above spot (marked on the map). You will find a small house with a dead body next to a tree.
There will be three Mandrake roots here that you can pick up. They will respawn back again after a while if you need to return.
