I did some research on bogs and learned that many bog plants, pitcher plants for example, evolved the way they did because bogs can be naturally low in nutrients. So I filled my bog with a mixture of peat, sand and a little bit of garden soil for the plants that aren't true bog plants.

The ironweed, turtle head, amsonia and irises are all starting to grow and will look like something in a few more weeks. So I'll keep posting as things keep growing.
