Hi all,
I just finished building and stweeking my container bog and they are finally work perfectly. But I have not put the plant in yet. Is it too late now to plant the bog plants? Do I have to wait until next spring? I already have the plants.
Thanks,

Hardy perennials need all the time they can to root in before the heat of Summer, they are better planted in Autumn so they can establish their roots

Planted in Spring there is a fair chance they won't be well established or able to bloom much before the heat knocks them about

Thanks! I was afraid that it'll be too late and they go into their dormant and die.

I planted a lot in my bog in nov when I first built it, most if not all came back gang busters in the spring. Your plants should be fine.
