    Thanks Kevin, that means quite a bit coming from you. I put several species in there (especially some Drosera........aliciae, brevifolia, burmanii, capensis etc...) knowing fully that keeping them in their respective designated areas will be a challenge. It should be fine as long as we keep up on the "weeding" and the end result will certainly be worth the extra trouble of controlling some of the plants that tend to wander.

    And even if not, better any Drosera than those sedges! Sedges and rushes were the death of my first bog, and made me determined to keep my stuff exclusively in pots, as you'd mentioned earlier.

    Yup. The whole top 6" or so was nothing but an enormous knot of sedge and fern roots. We had to cut into it and remove it in blocks. It was no fun. Hopefully we can stay on top of weeding it this time around.

    Any ferns in the genus Osmunda?
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.

    I wish. Nothing that got tossed was worth keeping.

    The thought of harvesting bricks of Osmunda was so appealing I had to ask!

    Oh man, I'm looking forward to seeing this at the next NECPS meeting! (If I manage to make it there this time. Or next. Or ever again.)
