How amazing is it that this flower(Horse Chestnut) will produce this seed (a conker).
The main function of a flower is to produce seeds to ensure the survival of the plant. So today, we’re going to look and see how this happens.
On the outside are the Petals which are like bright colored leaves, and their job is to attract insects and animals to the flower.
On the inside are the stamens. This is the male part of the flower and look a bit like short narrow straws. Their job is to produce pollen. Pollen is like fine dust-like grains.
In the very center of the flower, is the Pistil, and this is where all the action happens. It is the female part of the flower and looks like a long tube, narrow at the top and wide at the base. The base contains unfertilised eggs. The Job of the Pistil lis to make seeds.
