Lots of plants rely on insects like bees to reproduce.
To make a seed, a flower needs to be pollinated.
Pollen from one flower needs to travel to another. Bees are very important for carrying the pollen between flowers.
To encourage bees to visit them, flowers have colourful petals and an attractive scent.
Some flowers give the bees a sugary reward called nectar too.
It’s not just plants that need bees; we need them too.
Without them we’d have very little food.
Lots of our fruit and vegetables come from plants that are pollinated by bees.
What do plants roots and stems do?
A plant's roots sit below the soil and the stem grows above it.
What is the role of leaves?
Animals need to eat food to get their energy, but plants can make their own in a process called photosynthesis. This process mainly takes place in the plant's leaves. The cells in the leaves use light from the Sun, along with carbon dioxide in the air and water to make food.
