For a new seed to form, pollen from the stamen has to get carried to the pistil in another plant. The bee brushes against the anther. The anther gets a dusting of pollen on another flower the bee leaves some pollen, a pollen gran is collected by the pistil. The pollen gran goes down a thin tub to get to the ovule. Fertilization happens when the male pollen and female ovule combine the fertilized ovule becomes a seed and the seed becomes a new plant.
