Botanical Buddies

Join us these school holidays for a botanical adventure where children can experience the magical wonders of nature! Our Botanical Buddies lab lets your little ones play, touch, see and smell, as they journey through the lab to create their very own personalised plant to take home and grow!



Saturday 29 June - Sunday 14 July 2019

10am - 2pm Daily 

Free event; best suited for children aged 3+


Visit all 6 stations in the Botanical Lab;

Station One: Photo Moment

Snap & share your photo with the interactive neon wheelbarrow

Station Two: Pick your plant

Kids can select the plant they'd like to take home and grow. There are three different options available on plant-able paper.

Station Three: Invisible Ink

Write a secret message on your plant-able paper in invisible ink. This is an important step to help with the activation of your seed in step 6!

Station Four: Aroma Wall

Kids can identify the many garden fragrances at the aroma wall.

Station Five: Fertilising Station

Kids can fertilise their seeds with whichever smell was their favorite, using a selection of light misting bottles.

Station Six: Activate & Reveal

The most important step of all! Our Botanical Buddies will hold their seeds under a UV light to give them a head start, whilst they reveal their secret message written.

Now take home your seed paper and watch it grow, grow, grow!
