Explore Planet Botanic this summer!
Lots of people know about animal families like the cat family but not so many realise that plants have families too, AND they are just as interesting as animals! For example, the spooky Mandrake plant that is featured in Harry Potter is a real plant that is a member of the creepy nightshade family.
This summer's Planet Botanic trail introduces seven different plant families and challenges children to find out their secret family motto.The trail is designed for children of all ages who like discovering new things, spending time outdoors and hunting for hidden treasure. Adults without children are welcome too!
The new Planet Botanic trails are packed inside the explorer backpacks - available throughout the summer holidays - just pick up a pack from the ticket offices.
