Last summer I made a bog garden out of a small pond which no longer held water - it matured quickly and is looking wonderful now with lots of lush growth. The flag irises are showing a promise of flowers to come and the arum lily centre-piece has had one huge flower so far for about two weeks. For later colour I have also planted orange day lilies, lemon crocosmia, purple loosetrife and a large maroon leaved plant that has yellow flowers which I don't recall the name of! Tip - use wildlife safe slug pellets when young shoots are emerging in early spring.
