Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at the Millennium Seed Bank`s `Great Seed Swap` at the National Trust`s Wakehurst Place, we hear about the rich diversity of plant varieties that can be grown for food; see keen gardeners and horticulturalists exchange seeds; and learn from the experts about the importance of saving and sowing our own open-pollinated seeds.

Terminator seeds this video mention are a myth which never turned (nor will turn anytime soon) into reality. Also, all seeds come from two parents, but hybrids are special because they are formed by the combination of two very specifically selected/designed parents.
