    Proud owner, with questions..

    Finally finished the 2nd bog today! And I've got a few questions about what can handle this bog, mulched and covered, through our zone 6a winter..

    Is it too late in the season to put tiny sarr seedlings in there? Or should I keep them indoors under lights all winter?

    What are the dews that can survive in this bog? I know rotundifolia and intermedia because they're native to the area, but I forget what else.
    When is the best time to cover the bog with mulch and a tarp?

    Sarrs basking in the sun. They've been cooped up in the outdoor GH for the past couple months.
    They're screaming for some sunshine! Which this bog get's plenty of..
    Spoiling them rotten now with this 3ft. deep bog & underground drainage.
    The overall dimensions are 8' Long x 4' Wide x 3' Deep

    That's going to look great next summer. I think you need some filiformis in there though.

    There's one small D. filiformis. But I really only have filiformis tracyii, which I'm told won't survive the winter. So it's staying indoors..

    You shouldn't have to mulch it. I'm in zone 5 and have never mulched any of my 5 bogs. Everything makes it through just fine. I would keep the Sarracenia seedlings inside for the winter. I keep all my seedling Sarrs inside and growing steady for 2 years without dormancy. You could always put them in the bog in the spring if you want though.
