Five things you can do to garden

Plants get energy from the sun.

Besides air, all green plants need sunlight. A special substance or thing called chlorophyll (KLOR-oh-fill) is found in plants’ leaves. Chlorophyll is what makes leaves green and allows plants to gather light from the sun, which gives them energy.
