Planting Your Bog Plants
Marginal pond plants are shallow water plants that are normally planted on the top shelf of your pond or water garden, or in your stream bed. These bog plants prefer a planting depth of two to four inches in the water. Any deeper than that and they will die. If you do not have a pond with planting shelves you can always plant them in soil around the perimeter of your pond. Just make sure to water, and fertilize them frequently. These bog plants do a great job softening the edges around the perimeter of your pond and help ease the transition into the existing landscape. Great plants for different height contrast around the edges of your pond or stream bed. Combined with a balance of other pond plants they also make great natural pond filters.
Our bog plants ship bare root in 4" inch round pot's. when you receive your new plants, place them in a tub of pond water. Place the tub of pond water in the shade for 24 hours. Do not place your plants in the pond right away or they will burn from the hot sun. After 24 hours in the shade, simply pot and place them in your pond. fertilize once per month.
