    I haven't been able to look in the main area I planted them. The marshy meadow gets really thick with grasses so I couldn't really find anything in the thicket. I spread them over a wide area though, near the stream bank, in a swampy area, and in some drier parts, so hopefully something came up. There's a few spots I should check in though before snow covers the ground.

    Would you ever consider trading some sphag for CPs?

    I'd be happy to trade. There's so much of it growing in the woods that a little bit of pruning wouldn't put a dent in the population.

    Very cool! Looks like you may have a never ending supply of sphagnum.

    As long as it doesn't get plowed up and filled in, it should be safe for a long time. I think the property on the other side of the property line is all wetlands as well, so there shouldn't be anyone building houses around either anytime soon.
