Children's Activities Planet Botanic Planet Botanic is the name for our informal children's programmes which we host here in the garden. We believe that learning can and should be fun and full of excitement! Planet Botanic does exactly this. Hug a Tree Trail Why not try the 'Hug a Tree Trail' which offers fun facts and activities at each of the 8 stops around the garden. This involves measuring trees, making leaf rubbings, searching for mini beasts and learning about the Mongolian Pine, Oliver's Lime, Giant Aspen and more. All equipment required including activity sheet, compass, tape measure, brush, bug pot and magnifying glass can be found in the handy backpack which can be collected at the ticket office and returned at the end of your visit.
