tangelas-boots asked: A neat blog you have... I've seen a few about carnivorous plants before, which is always great since I find them to just be the most peculiar things. In any case, have a nice day! I'll be keeping an eye on your blog.
Thank you. You should buy a couple and be prepared to be totally fascinated.

Mini Bog Garden Complete
Things have developed somewhat on the mini bog and it is now complete. In the greenhouse! I’ll be putting it outside in the summer on nice days with no wind. Just as a focal on the table out the front. To give the neighbours something to gossip about.
So, here’s the process. I bought a large undrained bowl from the discount store. Put some drainage holes in half way up (at the back of the display) and filled it with 50/50 peat and horticultural sand (yes I finally managed to get some that wasn’t dust in this god forsaken country). J Arthur Bowers none the less.
It contains the following:
Clockwise from top (12 O’Clock)
S. Juthatip Soper
D. capenisis Albino
S. purpurea venosa ssp burkii MK PV9
DM All Red (with U. bisquamata)
S. minor var minor (Matt Soper)
D x California Sunset
Centre - S. rubra ssp. gulfensis Yellow River, N. Florida (Matt Soper)
I’m also ordering a couple of small Drosera from carnisana, a couple of Utrics and a P. primuliflora to also go in it.
