Creating a "garden pot" bog filter for your small pond

Simple & easy natural bog filter for your water garden using an ordinary garden pot & these simple steps!


  1.  Choose a pot: Glazed terra cotta works well
  2.  Drill a hole & pipe it: some pots have holes if not drill one to fit the tubing you are using either 1/2" or 3/4" works well. Length of tubing depends on the distance to the pump.

Lisa, I really enjoyed reading your post, what a wealth of information. You are amazing and when do you find the time?
At 2:54pm on September 2, 2011, Shirley Bovshow said…

Appreciate it Lisa. You can use some photos too and drop a couple of links in the post back to your website.


If you happen to like a particular plant brand variety, please mention is as we like to share that kind of information here so people can find specific plants!


Knowing me, I may edit the piece to "look" a certain way. Nothing personal.

Take your time. I look forward to reading your post, learning and sharing it.

No rush. I'll keep my eyes open. I'm sure others here are interested in plant varieties that work well in water.

You are amazing. Thanks.  I've planted many cannas but never in water. May use 1 as focal point. Acorus is nice too. Will check out the others.

Thanks Lisa. I will look these up, haven't used them before.

What is ur experience with Canna's? I love the foliage and there are some compact varieties.

Hey Lisa,

I'd like your professional advice. In your experience, what variety of iris is lower growing variety?

The irises in our pond have grown to over 6 feet during the past 3 years and now, all you see is the plant and no stream or pond! We can't see our Koi and they've taken over.


The pond is roughly 15 feet wide and 8 or 9 feet deep about 1200 gallons.

We are zone 10 in USDA and zone 18 Sunset.'


Any favorite varieties?

Thanksgiving Mini Arbor Centerpiece And Foraged Flowers


If you would like a unique display for your Thanksgiving table, consider making my miniature birch arbor centerpiece, filled with foraged flowers, fruits and vegetables. The centerpiece is easy to make and is affordable but it looks like you spent hundreds of dollars on it.   I came across a sidewalk full of fallen birch tree branches that […]



I started a trial for the UC Verde drought tolerant lawn in 2009 to see how it would grow and thrive in my very dry Los Angeles climate. These are the claims made by the developers of the UC Verde drought tolerant lawn.   "Here's what sets UC Verde apart from the tall fescues and bermuda grasses:" UC Verde […]
