How do flowering plants reproduce?

How seeds are made

  1. Pollen is carried by insects or blown by the wind from one flower to another. This process is called pollination.
  2. Pollen reaches the new flower and travels to the ovary where it fertilises egg cells (ovules) to make seeds. This is fertilisation.
  3. The seeds are scattered by animals or the wind. This process is called dispersal. Some of the seeds will grow into new plants.
