How Does It Grow? Apples

Before watching this video, we thought that planting a Gala apple seed would grow a Gala apple tree that would produce Gala apples. Perhaps not! In this episode of How Does It Grow?, we get to see the rather surprisingly high-maintenance process of growing these trees, which includes bud grafting, planting different varieties in close proximity to each other, bringing in bees to cross-pollenate the flowers, and protecting against hungry insects.
