FC: The Gardener and the Plant Life Cycle

1: A gardener works with a plants life cycle to help plants grow. This book will show you how a gardener can help a plant grow.

2: Plants start out as seeds. Just like these Zinnias. | Then plants put out leaves and are called seedlings. | Adult plants are much bigger, so they need big pots. Eventually, this tomato plant produces juicy fruit which has the seeds that start the cycle again.

3: This is the plant's life cycle. If you knows this cycle, and how a plants goes from stage to stage, then you can know better how to take care of your plants. | This young plant outgrew its seedling pot and now needs new soil and a new, larger pot.

4: Plants need lots of water, sunshine and good nutritious dirt to go through their life cycle.

5: Good soil means a good mix. You need soil that holds some water but not too much. Each kind of plant has different needs, so it's best to mix it yourself.

6: Looks like garbage, right? This compost gives soil extra nutrients. You can add vegetable scraps, coffee, leaves and even paper. Give it some time and you will have super nutrient-rich dirt for your plants. | Every gardener needs tools to mix dirt and compost to make it easy to use in the garden.

7: Sometimes insects can eat the roots and leaves of your plants, so you may need to spray a pesticide. | Sometimes a bird will get to your fruit before you do. They need to eat too, so you better be quick!

8: This hosta was grown from one stem in just water. See the roots? Soon it will need to be transplanted into a pot with soil.

9: This succulent plant hardly needs any water, but it does need a lot of sun. It keeps water in those fat leaves, just like a cactus.

10: Know your life cycle. | Seed Seedling Young Plant Adult Plant Fruit

11: Know your plant. | Each kind of plant has different needs. Some need a lot of water and sun, some need less water or more shade. Research a plant before starting your gardening project.
