BOG GARDEN

 

Our bog garden has been developed out of a naturally waterlogged dip in the area of land that has an informal edge to our existing pond. 

 

It has given us a range of attractive planting opportunities and even in these early stages we are creating an excellent wildlife habitat.

 

As it is a larger bog garden we have created a sculptural walkway and a solid pathway that intersect the bog and link it to other areas of the garden.

 

Our planting scheme has been designed to be hardy and give form and colour throughout the year and includes:

Iris sibirica
