Introduction - Seeds
So now we know plants make seeds, but how does a tiny seed find where it’s going to grow?
Read the How Are Seeds Spread? information and watch this video to find out more.
If the seeds just fall to the ground by the parent plant, they might not get enough sunshine, water or goodness from the soil to do well. Plants have developed crafty ways to spread their seeds around. Some are transported by the wind, some float on water, others spin or glide through the air, some actually explode from a seed pod so they fly a good distance. Some plants use animals - some seeds hook onto animals fur, and others make tasty fruit so the animals eat them... and you can guess what happens next!
