I remember a line from Chauncey Gardner in the Peter Sellers film Being There (based on the novel of the same name by Jerzy Kosinski) where Chauncey, having been evicted from his garden, comments to the President in a coversation on the economy: All will be well unless the roots are severed. So roots are also an important part of the gardening metaphor insofar as Chauncey had been evicted from the only home he had known, reflecting Jerzy Kozinski's own uprooting from his home in Poland, who later came to the US seeking political asylum.
