PROTECTION


Seed coat and enzymes protect seeds.


Norway has built a "Doomsday” Seed Vault –
to protect seeds from natural and unnatural disasters:
global warming, asteroid strikes, plant diseases,
nuclear warfare, and even earthquakes.


You can read more about
the Svalbard Global Seed Bank here.

  8. Härlig bild!
    Jag måste försöka att komma ihåg att ta ut mina orkidéer i år. Men jag ska inte klaga på blomvilligheten i alla fall. Sen vi flyttade hit har det nästan alltid varit någon/några i blom.

    Ha en riktigt skön helg.

  38. I also liked this version of the theme. Not one that I had thought of at all, and as a gardener it shocked me that I hadn't when I saw your post. Pretty nice photo too, actually. Thanks for your contribution.
