Bog planter.

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I'm building a planter which I'm going to let settle over the winter before planting it next spring. 

I'm going to use the upturned basin design,I've seen on here.

I'm thinking of surrounding the basin with horticultural grit,with about an inch covering the basin,then placing a layer of capillary matting over this before filling with the peat mix,would this be of any benefit,or am I over thinking it.The idea was to try to keep the reservoir free of muck.

Also,would it be a good idea to put some sphagnum moss in the peat mix,or just as a type of mulch?
