Three bog plant pots

Postby Marleneann » Thu Jun 26, 2008 8:50 pm

These are my three water pots. They hold some water in the pots and are designed for bog plants.

I should post my bog pot and give you all a laugh.
It's one of those big recycled plastic tubs, and it was only meant to be temperary, but it's been sitting in the sun so long it's starting to fall apart. Not a good look.

Zebra rush - Schoenoplectus lacustris 'Zebrinus'

GE has it in their catalogue, but it says it's not available, Midgin. I'll send off a message and find out when it will be.
