This is a good fusion of science and allegory. I see the parallel between seed an immigrant, but there is some botanical truth here as well. Plants many people think are native were introduced long ago by humans, and it has been said 'a weed is only a plant where you don't want it.' There is a risk, in this kind of allegory, of imposing too many human preconceptions on nature. You have avoided that here.

Matt Bailey Thank you for the feedback! Exactly, roses are synonymous with the uk but most have been introduced.

This is such an interesting perspective, and I think you maneuvered it extremely well. My only suggestion is more variance of length in sentences, otherwise it was lovely!
