Bog half the year
I live in a flatland area that is boggy most of the winter, but then dries up to the point of the ground cracking in the summer and fall.
Cannas and Callas do OK, but everything else tends to drown.
My neighbor has beautiful gardens, but he also has the $ and labor to raise all of his gardens. (He's also the designer of the Sonoma Co Flower Show and gets zillions of plants for free!)
I'm going to start planting several trees, bushes etc in mounds of dirt ( County will only let us bring in so much dirt due to protected wetlands) We can't add a foot of soil to our whole front yard, have to do it slowly.
Any ideas for wet/dry areas? TIA Nancy
