presents : What is Germination of Seed?

Germination is the growth of an embryonic plant contained within a seed; it results in the formation of the seedling.

Steps in Seed Germination

– 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 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.
