Most Garden Plants are Grown from Seed, and it may be wondered in what manner the young plant is able to grow before its leaves and roots have appeared. The solution is that the material other than air and water required for the purpose of germination is contained in the seed itself. The store of nutriment thus supplied is enough to carry the young plant to the stage when its leaves and rootlets are sufficiently developed for it to obtain food for itself. Seeds are storehouses of concentrated food, which explains their great value as foods for men and animals. Plant Your Seeds.

You probably know the Cactus as a spiky green plant that grows in the desert. That may be true, but there’s so much more to learn about cacti. The cactus is a type of plant called a succulent. That means that it can store water in its stems, roots, and leaves. Even if it doesn’t rain for a long time, the cactus still has water saved up to help it grow. Thanks to its ability to store water, the cactus can live for over a year without rain! If you are not particular concerned about the most beautiful flowers in the world, but prefer something drought tolerant and hardy, then look no further than cactus.
