Birds do it…bees do it…but it’s because plants do it that every other living organism on our planet is able to reproduce. Join author, educator, and plant nerd Sandy Masuo for a peek into the world of plant reproduction. 

Learn about selfing, cloning, and threesomes with pollinators. Your garden will thank you—and you’ll never look at flowers the same way again!
