A herb protector is an item that can be used on a herb patch to ensure that there is no chance of the planted herb becoming diseased or dying. The herb protector may be applied to a patch either before or after planting the herb, and can be applied whether the patch has been composted or not. When an active greenfingers aura is equipped, inspecting an herb patch will state that "Your herb protector is looking after this patch for you" even if herb protector has not been applied; because of this, you cannot apply herb protector to a patch while the aura is active.
Herb protectors cannot be used on Herblore Habitat herb patches.
