Bog garden on the edge!?
I have already written this in wild life forum and as yet no answers. cI want to put a couple of plastic window boxes on a ledge down one side of my wild life pond to make it into a small bog garden, the water would reach halfway up the window boxes. Would this be too wet for a bog garden, would the roots rot.
Can anyone help.
Will it have holes in the bottom or sides? Or will it float like a boat?
I have just come back to add that I would have to put holes in the bottom but I don't know about putting them in the sides. Any ideas? It deffinately wont be floating-hopefully.
If you put in marginal plants they will be vey happy with wet fee. I have iris and marsh marigold in a bog garden and the iris are taller than me!
Also mint loves that kind of condition.
I can picture this with not only tall plants as Briggsy says but with a not too aggressive taking over trailing plant for over the sides . It would add a real natural look to your wild life garden . any chance of some photo's when its set up ?.
