Hi All,

I've a large and shallow dish container which I would like to convert into a bog garden filled with pitcher plants and possibly other bog plants. This would be my firt foray into bog gardening and I would be most appreciative of any advise that I can get - such as how to create the ideal soil for such plant and how to feed them? I live in Ontario Canada which can have extreme cold winters of -30 C.

Thanks. Ianna

Oh as an aside, my 9 year old daughter has a venus fly trap and I need guidance on how to take care of it.
