Grow A Moss Bed

Got Shade ?

Moss Acres Project

Moss Acres Project

“Since they obtain all their nutrients from the air (moss has no true roots), moss plants require nothing more than shade, acidic soil, and adequate moisture to flourish. All moss plants need is a firm soil bed in a location with adequate shade. It is also imperative that the area in which moss plants will be grown is blown or swept clear of any existing plants, leaves or debris. Moss also seems to prefer poor quality soils with low nutrient levels.”

That description came from a website Terri came across called Moss Acres. They have lots of ideas for projects and sell moss and moss-related products. They also have a collection of beautiful ferns available. The webmaster knows from experience that moss is the answer when you got shade!
