It’s a jungle out there! Your beautiful, tranquil garden is a battlefield in which plants wage war against predators and struggle to outcompete one another for light, water, and nutrients. In this seminar (and in his new book by the same name), Dr. Scott Zona looks at how plants fulfill the five functions necessary for life: growth, nutrient acquisition, defense, reproduction, and dispersal. This is a fascinating look at how plants grow—not how to grow plants.
