Is It Dust, Dirt, Dandruff or a Seed?

Facts of the Case

Each of these seeds is a tiny plant All About Seeds

Seeds come in different sizes, shapes, and colors. Some can be eaten and some can't. Some seeds germinate easily while others need certain conditions to be met before they will germinate.

Do you know that within every seed lives a tiny plant or embryo? You can hold in your hand 500 radishes, many thousands of petunias, or an entire meadow if you remember that each seed is a plant!
