Hi I have been a member here a few months now, but just lurking in the background. So thought I would say hi and show off my latest project. Hopefully get some constructive criticism off you guys.

Main thing is, do you think all plants should survive the winter. Are they hardy enough

 

Thanks Steve

Looks good. They'll all survive, but the minor and leucophylla might get a bit grumpy. They tend to survive but not thrive outdoors.

You will also have to spray the plants against greenfly attack ( it will happen)the outdoor growing season is much shorter too.  One last thing,are those lumps of limestone around the plants?,most carnivorous plants hate lime.

Plants have been outside all year in pots, so have treated for green fly a few times already. Only been added to the bog this week.

 

But yes, I think your right, good spotting about the lime stone.  Im not entirely sure if they are limestone, but I might remove them just to be safe anyway. Put some wood around.

 

The stones are not actually in the bog though, just holding the plastic sheeting down around the outside. There is a ridge between the stones and the bog to stop any run off from the field behind, entering the bog, so nothing from the stones should entre either. But I might just be safe.
