Preparing Avocado Seeds

Posted: September 25, 2013 in SCIENCE

Hi everyone,
Here are some pictures of 3ºEP A preparing their avocado seeds. We are propagating the seeds now so that they will be ready to plant on Tree Day in November. We used two cocktail sticks to balance the seeds on the rim of a glass jar. The seeds sit in water, mimicking the process in nature. After two weeks the seeds should split open and begin growing a root. We will then mix some soil into the water so that the roots can begin to absorbing the nutrients, becoming more accustomed to growth in the ground. All 3ºEP behaved very responsibly whilst preparing the experiment and enjoyed themselves immensely!
