Edible plants for wet areas and bog situations

Many of the plants listed below handle wet areas and bog situations very well. For these plants, there’s only two seasons – wet season & dry season. If it’s warm and they’re well watered – or even flooded, they’ll grow like crazy, if it’s dry, and in some cases cold, they’ll go dormant.

They’re fantastic to use in your existing wet areas or shallow ponds and can be very ornamental.

If you don’t have any wet areas in your garden, it’s well worth considering creating some just to grow these plants. Closed containers like broccoli boxes and old baths make great mini-watergardens and these plants will love it!
