Leaves

Did you know?... Leaves keep plants alive by enabling them to produce energy. Veins carry nutrients to the leave and energy and waste products back to the plant.

There are two types of vein. The xylem transport water and minerals into the leaf where they react with carbon dioxide and photosynthesis takes place.

The phloem carry the organic compounds and sugars from photosynthesis back into the plant to give it energy.
