While walking in the forest yesterday, I looked at the trees, shrubs, and ground cover, and there was this specific little shrub that I have been walking past many times. He is lush green, very dense, and has beautifully shaped leaves. I felt tempted to dig him out and plant him in my forest garden. Yet, I knew that I couldn’t expect to uproot plants, replant them in my garden and expect them to thrive in the same way. Once I take them out of their environment, they would likely be less lush green, less dense, and maybe even less beautiful.
