When you’re talking about seeds or minibeasts you might want to talk about things growing.
Here are some helpful words!
une graine - a seed
une graine de haricot - a bean seed
une graine de laitue - a lettuce seed
Can you see how the type of seed comes after the word ‘seed’?
la racine - the root
une feuille - a leaf
une branche - a branch
A useful verb is pousser which means ‘to grow’. It also means ‘to push’. That makes sense, doesn’t it, as the shoots push out of the ground?
La racine pousse. - The root grows.
La feuille pousse sur la branche. - The leaf grows on the branch.
