imonyse Posted September 27, 2013 Report Share Posted September 27, 2013 (edited) I have a south facing garden that will receive 7-8 hours ( about 09:00 ~ 17:00 ) of direct sun during the growing season. But a building sitting in front of my house will create shade during the coldest months ( can get as low as -17c at night, with day temperature stays below freezing sometimes ) in winter. Wind is often not a problem as the strongest winds are from the north, and my house will create good protection. I have read Carl Mazur's blog (zone6b.wordpress.com), and planning to build something similar. I would mulch my bog with pine needles, but worried about been frozen solid for weeks because of the annual shade. I'm planning to grow all the temperate Drosera, Sarracenia and of course, VFTs. I was wondering if anyone has similar growing condition and would love to hear any suggestions. Edited September 27, 2013 by imonyse Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
