  1. I keep my Capensis, and psitticina outdoors all year too
  2. i know this may seem a strange/stupid question but here goes anyway.... Is live sphagnum moss the same as the "fresh" bagged stuff you get for hanging baskets? If not...any idea where I can get hold of it? Kind regards in anticipation of answers!!
  3. well...it is a BOG garden after all...you should have seen the look on the face of the guy I bought it off!! He told me it was all in working order ....I said...it's alright I'm not using it as a toilet....it's going to be a bog garden..... confused....I THINK SO!
  4. Well here it is in all of it's "glory" http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/uploads/gallery/album_576/gallery_4500_576_35645.jpg http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/uploads/gallery/album_576/gallery_4500_576_51004.jpg http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/uploads/gallery/album_576/gallery_4500_576_66823.jpg Hope you enjoy! Top section is VFT and sundew, pan section is for the sarras...
  5. toilet for bog bought!! picking it up later today!! SO excited...
  6. Hey...exactly the same here!! I think last year although we had that RIDICULOUSLY cold winter we also had an extremey warm and dry late Feb and March...that probably helped....My sarras starting new traps, VFT tryig their best and sundews are only just starting to come out of hibernation!!

  8. GROAN.......actually bidding on one at the mo....£10....can't wait to ..plant my bog!
  9. Well...I don't know how this is going to go...but... Had a mad idea while in the bath.... Gonna try to find myself a second hand toilet....(ebay is looking good right now!) and convert it into.....a BOG bog garden. Anyone else find this humorous at all....my partner just stared at me like I was a little mad. I will keep this updated with pics as and when I find said toilet....got a bid on one at the mo...finishes in a day or 2!
  10. Changed my mind now....actually trying to find a second hand toilet!! a REAL BOG garden!!!
  11. I'm a renter so difficult and heavy to move when we do! needs to be easily assemble/disassemble...concrete...nice idea...but not practical unfortunately!
  12. HI all.....strange request here! I'm considering making a bog from complete scratch and make it to fit a particular place.....I want to fashion an "interesting" looking one. Is fiber glass and resin OK or will it give off chemicals that will kill the cps!?? Any other suggestions as to what I could make it from if this isn't a good idea!??? perspex and clear silicone sealant?? Also....on second thoughts...If I built it around the downflow pipe of the guttering....would it water itself!!!??
  13. Not a new member here but never been to one of the visits before..so a little nervous! Who is going to Kew and how/where do we go!!?? Would be good to meet some of you!
  14. Lovely collection!!!! no greenhouse here so my plants are MONTHS behind!
