Lateral and secondary roots are those that grow off the primary or other fibrous roots and are usually very small.
A bud on the side, rather than the tip, of a stem.
A region where cells divide, located along the length of a stem or root.
Tomato laterals are the side branches that form in-between the main stem and a leaf that is growing on the main stem. These are easy to see when they're young. It's best to pinch them out at this stage rather than leaving them to grow.

Encourage lateral growth
Straight up growth has its limits. New shoots that are allowed or forced to grow straight up produce a chemical inhibitor which prevents their buds from breaking into flowering shoots.
New growth on lateral (side) branches may be cut slightly shorter than that on the leader. Evergreen trees will not recover well if cut back severely.
Systems include lateral pipes that are trenched and connected around the yard to channel drains, area drains and downspouts. This system should extend as close to the street as possible.

Snowplow wings are lateral extensions of a snowplow blade. The wings allow the blade to be widened to cut a bigger path through the snow.
Apical dominanceThe influence of a terminal bud (apical bud) in suppressing the growth of lateral buds.Apical meristemThe tissues at the tip of roots and shoots where cells divide, giving rise to new growth.
(Gr. phyllon, leaf; eidos, form) a winged petiole with flattened surfaces placed laterally to the stem and functioning as a leaf.phyllotaxy search for term- n. (L. phyllo-, and Gr. taxis, arrangement) the arrangement of the leaves on the stem.
Pinch out the growing tip when plant has excelled the top wire to encourage lateral growth. Train and tie lateral shoots, one to each side. Remove any new growth during summer.
Any time that the tip growth is removed, the plant's energy will be diverted to the lateral side growth, creating a much bushier plant.
Coleus are very durable, so you can cut your plant back severely if needed (almost back to the soil level).
The rising shoots, intended to form young wood should be taken as near the origin of the branch as a good one offers, to allow of cutting away, beyond the adopted lateral, a greater quantity of the branch, as it becomes old wood; ...
To do this, find the area along the base of the trunk where it begins to widen and lateral roots start to spread outward. This is called the “root flare'. The root flare is the bottom of the trunk and the top of the root system.
(tulip), and versatile if it is lateral, near the center of the anther as in Crinum spp. (crinum).
Anther - lobed, oblong, bag-like appendage at the top of the filament which produces the pollen grains which develop the male germ cells.
Removing basal leaves or lateral shoots during berry set and the 2-week period following (before adult leafhoppers emerge), as recommended for Botrytis bunch rot management, will normally reduce peak leafhopper populations during the season by 30-50%.
Thinning (cutting selected branches back to a lateral branch or main trunk) is usually preferred over heading back (Figure 1). Trees can be thinned to increase light penetration and encourage turfgrass growth beneath the tree.
- Remove dead wood from the main canes and lateral stems, and any main canes that did not carry flowering laterals the previous season; also remove twiggy growth that's slimmer than a pencil.
There are three basic types of buds: terminal, lateral and dormant. Terminal buds are at the tips of twigs or branches. They grow to make the branch or twig longer. In some cases they may give rise to a flower.
Climbers should have their laterals cut back to three or four eyes and any new canes breaking from the base should be eliminated (unless you want to develop a new cane). Species roses (and most shrubs) should be tip pruned each fall.
The large leaves are bilateral - symmetrical opposed and fold together at night.
The fruit is a pod, while the seeds are small and square.
The strongest lateral cane on either side is pruned to 20 - 30 buds. These two laterals give you a total of 40 to 60 buds. The number of buds that you retain for fruiting is determined by the vigor of the vine.
A strongly growing tree can carry more fruit, therefore perhaps half of the laterals could be shortened and half left untouched. On a weaker tree, which tends to form fruit buds at the expense of new growth, 2 in 3 of the laterals may be pruned.
Lateral roots will branch off from the taproots and then more lateral roots will form from the initial lateral roots, but the central tap root will remain the largest and burrow down into the soil the deepest. A good example is the common carrot.
For the first three years until fruiting begins, the aim of pruning is to develop the shape by tying in the main stem, or leader, and shortening new sideshoots, or laterals, to three leaves beyond their basal cluster of leaves.
Leave three or four laterals in the first year and prune back to two thirds or a half. In the second year, prune back the sub laterals to two thirds or a half and remove other weak or narrow angled laterals.
Its straight trunk generates lateral shoots spreading outward. The leaves are similar to that of pine but much longer and flatter with a clear midrib. They make a nice contrast in texture next to a pine.
Maintain the canes and cut through the lateral stems, this will help thicken up the foliage around the canes without shortening the plant.
Each branch will have in turn produced branches, called laterals. On each scaffold branch, save two or three laterals that are at least 6 inches apart. Prune any laterals that are longer than the scaffold branch.

To ensure that your entire yard drains properly and away from the foundation of your house, install an underground drainage system, which includes lateral pipes that are trenched and connected around the yard.
Fruiting laterals extend from plants and support fruit without breaking, making harvest easier. The canes are moderately thorny.
With some perennials, especially those used for cut flowers such as peonies and chrysanthemums, you can encourage fewer but larger blooms by removing the smaller lateral flower buds, ...
For climbers, which are typically trained onto arbors or other structures, prune back laterals (stems that grow from existing canes, rather than emerging directly from the base of the plant) to between three and five buds.
Over the summer regularly deadhead spent flowers that form on the laterals, cutting them back to just above the third or fourth bud from the primary cane. This keeps aggressive laterals under control, so you have less pruning next year.
HABIT: The shape or form of a plant, growing vertical, laterally, or rounded. It is important to know the habit of a plant so one can expect certain growth patterns.
HABITAT: The kind of environment inhabited by a particular species.

Prune straggly and tangled vine grown indoors in the fall/winter when growth has stopped and/or after blooming to promote lateral branching. Because C.
Spray off center, and you may create collateral damage. Organic herbicides typically burn down the weed without affecting adjacent grasses and plants. Some organic manufacturers report kill rates in 24 hours.
For complex patterns, such as cordon, which use lateral growth, cut the terminals at the first cordon-about 15-18 inches from the ground. For natural designs, simply tie branches in their natural form without overlapping branches.
Rhizome - A continuously growing horizontal underground stem that puts out lateral shoots from its nodes. Also called rootstock. (Some lawn grasses and irises are rhizome plants.) ...
Noteworthy characteristics: This compact cultivar flowers and fruits when young.
Propagation: Root semi-ripe cuttings of lateral shoots with bottom heat in late summer.
Problems: Mosaic virus, mites.
Always prune to an outward-facing bud so new growth won't crowd the center of the plant. Climbing roses have long-lived canes producing lateral growth from which flowers arise.
covers that are normally low growing may occasionally send out upright stems that spoil the evenness of the planting; cotoneaster is one example. When you see such stems, cut them back to their point of origin or to a horizontally growing lateral ...
For the home gardener, the easiest methods of propagation are by stem cuttings, layering and division of offsets that sprout laterally from the base of the plant.
Weave and tie in lateral branches, as you would when pleaching. Prune in winter for the first few years to encourage bushy growth and remove new growth on the trunks.
The farther berries are borne from the base of the plant, the smaller they will be at maturity. In winter, remove all lateral shoots that grew within 2' of the ground, and head higher ones to 12 to 15 inches.
