Andrewia blue Grevillea Hawaiin Skies Hibiscus Pink Petite Nepenthes northiana Passiflora lavender lady I guess this is my first attempt at a bog garden There are various ways to create a bog garden, but basically you want to build an area where water will stay in the soil and not pond above it. Knowing this: 1. Is your soil already water-packed when it already gets wet? This is the case with a clay based soil and most heavy soil. Mountain and alpine soils might also be dense sediment based. If your soil gets water logged, you might be able to get away with digging a hole... 2. If your plants won't be part of your regular garden, but are displayed together, as in an exhibit, you may opt to put a plastic liner all across the bottom of your dug pit, so long as you don't use too much water and overfill it. In regular use this would degrade easily. 3. If you use plants usually put directly into standing water, like always bog plants, then this plastic liner is not optimal. If possible only use the liner on the sides, so the bottom is permeable for the roots to reach the "bad" ground below. Add rocks to make various heights if you like. 4. On top of the ground you have laid the liner, pour your sand or gravel, until you have set out deep enough so that the plants are sitting level, and not in rich soil. Bog plant roots would eventually choke. The sand is to distribute water evenly too. Add high-nutrient soil to each of the flower's plants, pushing aside the root with your finger. Don't get soil onto the new growth in the centre, away fro their own roots, ideally. You may rule on which plants to retain from the previous bog season, and till any suitable organic product into the sand, prior to levelling it. 5. If you feel water stays atop your soil still, then add some drainage holes thru the lead linings, concealing them from sight by covering with a layer of sand,ie, that your bottom layer isn't in touch with the lead /l liner, if suitable. You may even scoop out a reservoir a few inches or equipments above the bottom if that's where the soil is mucky enough to drain than the soil above. 6. As plants have time to put together new roots this can take from weeks to months to achieve ideal conditions: a natural growth that feeds the flower well. The lead liner will start to show some despair, as the plants' weight pushes down, but this can actually add to the appeal of the bed, rather than being smoothed over to, say, patch with rock! Containers of any depth can achieve this (hydroponically claimed to! ), so can come vast containers, an aquatic basin is not essential (but it's an interesting look if watermarked). Smaller bogs are almost a garden in a pot, which can make good aquarium for many species. A bit of a rule, neither all huge leaves are preyed, nor some carnivorous plants are probable aquariums, though. Note: You may wish to navigate away from this page so work progresses.
