Moss Madness

Explore the exciting varieties and nuanced beauty of NC’s naive mosses.  An overview of growing techniques will be followed by an opportunity to create a mini-garden using mosses, lichens, and other bites of woodland bounty.

The annual educational conference for North Carolina’s Extension Master Gardeners will be held in Raleigh, May 8-11. Hosted by the Master Gardener Association and Cooperative Extension, the conference offers public and private garden tours, hands-on workshops, and educational sessions ranging from community and children’s gardens to sustainable strategies, and wildlife in the garden.

The conference is open to all Master Gardeners as well as anyone who may be interested in applying to the program. For more information on the conference and to register online, go to:  NC Master Gardeners.

      Hello Cynthia, your not alone in your quest for moss on the vertical. Mosses are well suited for vertical surfaces and do not need the complicated support systems necessary for vascular plants. Your particular needs will have to be understood a little better though before I can advise you. I’ll be happy to help you, just give me a call and we’ll go from there. 919-622-4150
