How do seeds germinate?
« on: 30/05/2013 03:17:06 »
I was planting my garden the other day. And it occurred to me that I really don't understand how seeds germinate. What happens to them when you add water? What chemical reaction starts the ball rolling? It's kind of amazing when you think about it.
