- Seeds are ripened ovules. A tree starts life from energy stored in a seed.
Or a tree can start from a cutting that contained stored energy. Some seeds
have embryos that grow after the seed matures and falls while other seeds pass
through a dormant period. Plant lots of seeds -ideas -along the way. It is
always surprising to see those that grow.
The seed is mainly stored energy with the beginning parts for root and shoot. When a seed germinates, in a sense, an oscillating seesaw system starts.
