What you need:
  • Bag of peat moss
  • Knife
  • Shovel
Lay a bag of peat moss on its side. Make several diagonal slits in the bag, starting halfway up and working upwards. This allows some water to drain out of the bag, while retaining enough to create the desired bog-like environment.

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the bag of peat moss. Place the bag in the hole and backfill around it with soil.

Next, cut off the upper side of the bag.

Fill the bag with water. The peat will take about two days to fully absorb the water. Wait until the peat is totally saturated before planting in your mini bog garden.
