the Slough bog

Recommended Posts

whoops didn't mean to post already. Anyway has you can see it's just your bog standard  garden pond filled with 6" of gravel, 12" of 50/50 peat and sand then 6" of peat.I dug the pond in the ground and packed around the sides with sand with log round to hold it all in.

I have quite a few photo's and don't want to bombard you all with them and it's hard to choose the best one's so i can post a link to my facebook album if that's better

Very nice idea with the wood covering the sides, what kind of "gravel" are you using? (saw it in a flickr pic)

How’s it looking now?

I’m just down the rd in Surrey, I’m about to construct an old galvanised tin bath into a bog garden....

I’ve got a few Sarracenias, but what else do you have in there.
