I'm considering starting a bog garden and would like to hear other people's experiences. There's a ton of info online but can't find anyone talking about how bee friendly they are.

I have an Australian native bee hive and am only interested in the first place because it looks as if you can put a lot of flowers in one area. I won't be keeping any carnivorous plants for obvious reason and am hoping there are some plants with a high pollen/nectar load.

Any help is much appreciated.

I don't know too much about bog gardens, but gardeners with boggy soil in these parts plants blueberry or other berries. Berries are wildly tolerent of acid, poor drainage and wet, you can also plant willows to leech some of the moisture from the soil.

Berries are very attractant of bees...
