Wind is energy – we can turn it into electricity.
New Zealand is a windy place because it is closely surrounded by sea.
Some plants use wind to spread their seeds.
Some plants need wind for pollination. Unlike plants pollinated by birds or insects, they have smaller flowers with no scent or nectar, but gazillions of tiny pollen grains (which make us sneeze!) Their flower parts are designed to catch pollen floating past in the breeze.
Most plants, especially young seedlings, need shelter from strong wind.
