New designed bog

17 posts in this topic

Hello!

This weekend i had a lot of work in my parent´s garden. I´ve designed my bog completely new.

The old one was too small, and some plants were too big. So the only solution was a new and bigger bog.

Just to show you how much work it was, here the old one:

And here is the new one... A lot of work for two days!

I guess the new bog is much better than the old one. I hope that the plants are grow as well as in the old one.

I keep you updated, because the temperatures in Germany are still very cold.

It´s not completely finished, some little things are to do, but the most is done!

I hope you like it!

Best regards,

Thomas

Hi Thomas! it's a great project! I am willing to build a bog for myself, but I have some doubts...

How do you water the bog?

How deep is it?

Thats a fantastic bog. I am sure next season, once the plants get a chance to recover, they will thrive. :smile:

Thx for your nice comments!

I water the bog with normal water. Normally i use rainwater, but i havn´t enough at the moment.

The bog is approxametaly 40cm deep!

Good job!

I guess that may have changed last night, at least we got a good amount of water (after quite a few relatively dry weeks). :yes:
