Water and Bog Plants

In their natural environments,
shallow water and bog plants grow at the water's edge. This group
of plants include irises, cannas, papyruses, pickerel plants,
water poppies and parrot feather. For the taller members of this
group, it is essential to select a large, flat and heavy container
to prevent the wind from tipping them over. A fourteen to sixteen
quart tub should be sufficient. Use a mixture of four parts of
good garden soil to one part composted cow manure. Fill the container
half full and add one cup (8 oz.) of 10-10-10 fertilizer per bushel
of soil and mix thoroughly. Fill container to within two inches
of the top. Plant shallow water and bog plants upright. Firm soil
around the plants and add one inch of washed sand or gravel. Lower
into pool to a depth of two to six inches.
