Hello im doing a school science project for my yr10 certificate, and i wanted to know where to find weed seeds, i read in a book that u can find them in the soil under dead weeds. I tried looking for some but couldnt find any.

Guess it would depend upon the species (kind) of weed. Some seeds that are carried by the wind could be far removed from the parent plant.
