We love tree seeds, but we are not the only ones. The seeds we planted at school seem to be ok – they haven’t yet shown but the pots seem undisturbed. However, we know not all seeds will germinate, so we planted extra to make sure that every pupils will have a seedling to look after. This includes some planted in other places – but we were not the only ones to take an interest in them. In the wild, tree seeds are a vital part of the food chain and are sought out by many animals and insects – tree seeds planted anywhere are no exception. Some seeds were eaten; some seedlings were eaten. So more seeds were collected from a local woodland (they are now sprouting) to hopefully replace the ones we have lost. We are guarding them closely. https://burlingtonnfnews.edublogs.org/2023/03/11/the-trials-of-tree-seeds/
