Moss for sale

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

Those of us with lawns rich in moss will be in­ter­ested to see it’s now on sale at the gar­den cen­tre... Hailed as a low­main­te­nance, shade-lov­ing plant ideal for a Ja­panese style gar­den, moss can be bought in car­pets, cush­ions or (in the US) as a wa­ter-on ‘milk­shake’. Yet moss is no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult to trans­plant and es­tab­lish, so take care what you’re buy­ing and check it’s been sus­tain­ably sourced (it’s an of­fence to gather it from the wild). It might be eas­ier to gather up the pieces that fall off your roof be­cause you know they’re drought tol­er­ant, com­pared to lawn moss, which likes damp, shady con­di­tions.
