how to build a bog garden???
I need some advise please. I want to create a bog garden. Here's the plan I have....will it work? The hole is about 18" deep. I am putting a soaker hose coiled up in the bottom. I'll top that with a few inches of pea gravel, then cover with landscape fabric. Then I'll fill the bog with peat. I'll have the soaker hose on a timer to run for 15 minutes each day, forcing new moisture up from the bottom and overflowing the extra water out of the yard. I plan to plant this bog with Sarracenia (pitcher plants) and other non-invasive plants. I don't want cattails or irises because I don't want roots clogging up the gravel in the bottom. Will this work OK? Any suggestions? thanks!
