What is Germination?
When a seed is sown into moist soil, it begins to grow. This process is called Germination.
Seed Germination Process :
- The seed coat splits.
- A tiny root grows downwards and a shoot grows upwards.
- This produces a seedling of a plant, which ultimately grows into a new plant.
- After some time, the plant bears flowers. The flowers produce fruits and the fruits have seeds in them.
- All seeds can germinate when sown in moist soil under suitable conditions to produce new plants.
- By natural or man-made processes, these seeds are sown into the ground again and that is how new plants are born.
