The Life of Seed

Seed.  Every time I plant one there is a moment of anticipation!  Am I giving it the optimal environment to thrive in?  Will it grow to maturity and flower?  I feel a bit like an expectant parent.

Having a fascination for seeds I enjoy exploring where they came from, how they got here and what makes them grow.  Starting from the beginning here, I would like to write about the following.  I will be providing links and references so you can dig deeper if you wish.

Part I: The Evolution of Seed

Part II: Botany of Seed

Part III: The History of Human Use of Seeds for Farming

Part IV: The Difference Between Seeds, Nuts, Legumes and Drupes

    Perennials are plants that live for 3 or more years. Some, such as trees, flower and set seeds every year for many years. Other types of perennials have stems and leaves that die away over winter, but the plant continues to live underground. In the spring, new stems grow, which later bear flowers. Tulips and daffodils are examples of this type of perennial.
