The Roots:

The miracle of growth starts at the roots. , Decorating Outdoor Decks and Patios With Themes As already mentioned, roots , Designing an Edible Garden transport nutrients up to their leaves and plant , Camellias sugars are returned by the leaves. The roots , Camellias also act as storerooms for the excess sugars that are produced by the leaves. These sugars are stored in the form of starch.
