ZomBotany is the first mini-game in Plants vs. Zombies, available as soon as the mode is unlocked. It features several Peashooter Zombies and Wall-nut Zombies, which have the same abilities as their corresponding plants. Defensive plants such as Wall-nuts and Tall-nuts are vital here, considering the Peashooter Zombie's ability is to damage plants from afar.

  • ZomBotany is a portmanteau of the words zombie and botany, hence, the zombies here are plant-zombie hybrids.
  • The Hypno-shroom has disappointingly incomplete effects on plant-zombie hybrids. Although hypnotized Peashooter Zombies do the about face and munch their normal brethren, they continue to fire peas towards the player's house (apparently from the back of their head) which continue to damage his or her plants. They also are not harmed by peas fired by normal Peashooter Zombies and so do not run interference for the player's plants. Unfortunately, these bugs are not fixed in updates. These errors are fixed on the iPhone version (however, hypnotized Jalapeno Zombies will still destroy the player's plants).
  • Spikeweed, Potato Mine, Spikerock, Sun-shroom, and Puff-shroom are surprisingly effective since the peas fired cannot harm them. Instead, it goes over these five and harms the next plant in the row. However, when the player plants a Coffee Bean on a Puff-shroom or Sun-shroom, the Coffee Bean gets damaged by peas until it disappears.
  • In the ZomBotany mini-game, most plants can take 16 peas worth of damage before being destroyed.
  • The ZomBotany in the iPod Touch version is worth $10,000.
  • It is also the only mini-game on the iPod Touch version that is not bought in a game pack.
  • Beating this mini-game without Tall-nuts, Wall-nuts and Pumpkins will earn this achievement Wall-Not Attack.

    A guide for the mini-game.
  • ZomBotany was one of the beta names for Plants vs. Zombies, and this mini-game was named after it.
  • This, Wall-nut Bowling and Beghouled are the only mini-games with a sequel.
  • When you kill a zombie its head disappears instead of falling off.
  • The iPad icon is the only icon that the background appears to take place in the night.
  • In the DS version, Wall-nut Zombie will not degrade.
  • There was an unreleased soundtrack called ZomBotany which was probably going to play in this and its sequel.
