Artificial Pollination

As part of our Science topic on Life Cycles, we have been learning about how flowering plants reproduce. After finding out about pollination, we wondered if it was possible to pollinate a plant without having bees or the wind involved. To test this, we collected pollen from the anther of one geranium flower and moved this onto the stigma of another flower. We are excited to see whether our hand pollination is a success, or if we should leave the hard work to the bees!
