    Weather and Bogs

    I'm going to be putting sarrs and vft into a new (and my first) bog this weekend.
    I live in Greenville, SC and for those of you on my side of the country see the big storm heading our way. I have forecasts for winds of 10-25 mph and gusts up to 40.

    Is this type of weather that a newly transplanted sarr/vft can tolerate or would I be better off waiting for the storm to pass to give them their new home?

    The area I live in seems to channel wind right thru my property.. I have the bog depth set at 20" with a 4" rim above that and another 2" or so of rock on top of that. Is this type of barrier good to have for somewhat windy areas or should I just add another 4" of mix to the bog?

    Cool. We have a house in Hiawassee, Ga and get our local TV channels out of Greenville.

    If you feel uncomfortable just wait a day.
