|Year of the Ferns|
I have come to understand what "progression" means in a forest garden. Some of my herbs that did so well the last two years are now being crowded out by other plants. I will need to move them to the new raised bed herb box. For example, the oregano and peppermint can be found only by walking on them and I can smell their delightful fragrances. The lovage definitely wants to be somewhere else. Valerian on the other hand seems to have acclimated quite well to its location atop a rotting stump.
