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