    I have raised Sarracenia and Dionaea for 8 years here in Kansas in my bog garden. The trick is to put the bog garden partially underground (hence, dig your hole and line it with your pond liner). The bigger the bog, the more likely it will be more resistant to damage.

    Also, I always lay about a foot of straw and cover with a tarp every year.

    My "mini bog's" Sarracenia died though. Not from the frosts, but continuous freezing and thawing during the last part of winter. It is funny that they survived weeks frozen, but the continuous heavy rains alternating with freezing weather in late February killed them.

    My bog WAS the ground

    The sarracenia were fine but I don't want the mud to wash away and them freeze in a year or two. The lake is eroding

    I'm just gonna send them off for me friend to have this fall/winter, I'm going to college soon anyway.

    I thought you lost the plants in your bog.

    Are you talking to me? No I lost all of the Drosera and Dionaea. The Sarracenia were fine. Along with the weeds, thank God.
