  1. Please explain how it is possible to do this. Is it just that one side drains and the other doesn’t? Is it the medium they are planted in? Peat vs sand? Thanks for an explanation.

    1. It’s mostly an issue of elevation. The lower “bog” is lined with a rubber liner, and the planting media is pure peat moss. The soil above is a mix of 50% native soil and 50% compost, which stays fairly dry and is well drained.
