One of the things you can say to a citizen in Bridgetown is "I heard you have an apothecary in town. Do you know anything about it?" You'd expect that to lead to directions to the apothecary - rather useful if you're in Bridgetown to get rid of a cursed albatross. But you don't get directions. You get stuck with the "Mysterious Plants" sidequest instead. And you still don't know where to find the apothecary, whether to hand over an albatross or to progress the sidequest. Suggestion: change the dialog to give directions. And only trigger "Mysterious Plants" if you've talked to the apothecary and agreed to do it.
