Articles regarding Bog gardening?

I was wondering if any of you know of any magazine articles (trade or shelter) regarding bog gardens?

Most articles I've seen have been towards bog gardens that are more like wetland/greywater recovery gardens.

I guess I find these articles boring because they are not true bog gardens but more like wetland gardens (I apologize for being a purist). There was an article last year in Horticulture about "bog gardens" as filters for swimming ponds which did have some merit even for us purists.

If you're looking for info on starting a bog garden (especially a true bog) let me know. I can get you info.

Garden Gate has had several articles throughout the years on starting a backyard bog.
