Moss Rocks! Rocks Valentine’s Day


Valentines Day is often represented with images of cupid wearing a diaper shooting an arrow right through the hearts of unsuspecting love.  That’s what happened one day when cupid struck his arrow through the hearts of Pet Rock and Chia Pet. But, there is a twist to this story.  Cupid, had a fashion malfunction.  He was wearing a moss diaper, which was common for his generation, but he had an accident.

Chia and Rock’s cupid was getting up in the years and he couldn’t fly as well as the other cupids on the love circuit.  When he was taking aim at Chia and Rock, he ran into a flying pet poodle wearing mama-jamas.  The collision caused spores to spew from his moss diaper.  Just as the arrows struck his love-creating hearts, spores sprinkled down, lightly dusting the young loves.

This love led hot fun in the summertime, but with a cool twist.  Both Chia and Rock had an insatiable desire to, a-hem, find a moss garden to express their love.   Moss Rocks! is the love child of this innocent love.

Fortunately for the masses, later generations of Moss Rocks! came true to seed, sorta speak, and reproduce in three sizes – Pebble, Cobble, Boulder.

Oh dear, where to start?; when to stop? Moss Rocks! are rocking my world! Yep, that is what we’re hearing.  We can finally answer your questions!

The answer to where to start? Start by ordering Moss Rocks! right now.  Moss Rocks! are available at many Independent Garden Centers across the country and on-line.  Order today.  They make the perfect Thanksgiving hostess gift, holiday gifts, teacher gifts, and if you order 2, you can keep one for yourself.

Heck, order 8 and put in every room of your house.  How about 16, so your Moss Rocks! won’t be alone?  Better yet, order 24 to artfully arrange in groups of three.  Then order 5 more for the porch, patio, deck or to set on the table for Al Fresco dining….I guess this brings us to answering the second question…

The answer to when to stop?*  Why stop?  If it feels good, baby, just do it.  After you’ve ordered Moss Rocks! for every room of the house and every available space in the garden,  you may want to consider putting a Moss Rocks! in a secret place where you can be alone with your new Moss Rocks!  Find a quiet place where your Moss Rocks! can give you solitude.   I’ve done it.  When I need a break from my hectic work day, I can nestle next my big, bold, boulder Moss Rocks! and tell him about my day.

Moss and leaves

Dear David,

What is your recommendation for protecting moss from leaves? I assume the netting plays a role but I’m unsure what type and how to implement it.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Jeff

Dear Jeff,

I would recommend the same 3/8 inch mesh for leaf collection that is recommended for critter deterrence.

For leaves and falling debris, you can simply roll the netting out without pinning it down; after enough leaves have fallen, roll it back up and add to your compost pile. Repeat this until the leaves are done for the season. It is perfectly fine to allow the leaves to stay on top of your moss for a couple of weeks; you do not need to clean the netting too often.

Moss Rocks! David Spain on Martha Stewart TV

 

Only in America can a small town moss expert make his way as a guest on Martha’s TV show.  Yup.  David Spain will appear LIVE Wednesday, October 5, 2011.

David is an artist whose medium is moss.  Yes, it’s true he is a moss expert, but it’s really more than that.  He has a passion for all things moss.  It won’t take long for his moss charm will rub off on you.

During the show, David will share tidbits from his Mossology, show you how to make a moss dish garden, and introduce you to Moss Rocks!

In Raleigh, Martha Stewart TV airs at 10:00 AM EST on the Hallmark Station, which, if you are on Time Warner Cable, is channel 73. To find out the channel and time it airs in your area, go here and enter your zip code.

Moss pH preference

I feel very fortunate to be in the position to ask anything of David Spain, moss expert, co-owner of Moss and Stone Gardens – Where Moss Rocks! and developer of Moss Rocks!  And I do.

Often, when I’m researching a piece for this blog or another media outlet, I’ve learned to question long held beliefs.  David has taught me think about moss and to question what is being spread by word of mouth..  At first, I felt confident in my understanding of what is widely written about.  However, I’ve learned to ask anything of David to better understand exactly how moss grows and thrives.  After all, he is the moss expert; I am the communicator.   A classic example of this is the pH preference for mosses.  I believed, and what is widely written about, is that moss thrives in a pH  between 5.0 – 5.5.

Most believe this too, so I asked David Spain, what is the perferred pH of moss?
According to David Spain, I have dispelled the common adage that mosses prefer an acidic soil in the 5.0 to 5.5 range.  Moss is often found growing on acidic substrates and this is often noted as an indication of their preference for that pH range. It is more correct to say that other plants don’t prefer pH levels of 5.0 to 5.5, therefore acidic soils promote less competition, thereby allowing moss colonization. Most mosses will colonize a much wider range of pH than other plants, since they do not draw nutrients from substrates, their need for a certain pH range is overstated.

You too can ask anything of David Spain.  If you have a moss question, please let him know by leaving a comment, here on the blog, at any time.

Long, cool Moss Rocks!

Sitting alone along the windowsill, Moss Rocks!™ watches beauty all around her from the security of the indoors.  No squirrel is likely to scratch her sporophytes today.

The Toadstool color of this Cobble-sized Moss Rocks!, complements the honey color of the natural wood grain wonderfully.  A perfect resting spot for Moss Rocks!

It took David Spain co-owner of Moss and Stone Gardens — Where Moss Rocks! 2 years to bring Moss Rocks! to market.  During this time, he addressed issues of shipping, color, shape and style; but more importantly, David researched the best moss for use indoors.

Never before has a living moss product, with a suitable container, designed solely for sustaining and displaying such a beautiful species of moss, been developed and available for easy care and transport. ~David Spain


It all came together at the first of this year and will be offered to you in October.  Every home, whether in the arid Southwest or the frigid Northwest can have their own little moss garden, inside or out; from your desk to your deck.

Come check us out and tell us how you display your Moss Rocks!

Moss Rocks! ROCKED the IGC Show in Chicago

After 450 million years in the making, 2 years in development, a patent pending, and an infinite number of ideas flowing, stirring up juices like one might find in a frothy river, Moss and Stone Gardens — Where Moss Rocks! launched their first moss dish garden to an eager group of buyers.  Moss Rocks! are the ultimate moss dish gardens.

Yes, we sell Moss Rocks!, but we are, first and foremost, about moss education. ~ David Spain, co-owner of Moss and Stone Gardens – Where Moss Rocks!

If you are social media savvy, and I trust you are if you are reading this blog post, you probably heard about the Moss Rocks! launch.  If you didn’t, you must have been hiding under a moss rock of another kind.  Moss Rocks! are all the buzz.  It’s only been a week and a day since the launch, and yet we have created quite the stir.  We should celebrate, with a refreshing toddy, on the rocks of course, but we haven’t had enough time for that. Soon, we hope.

Orders were taken from Maine to California; from Florida to Washington. The buzz of a whole new product hitting the market, one that is also hot and hip, AND one that can meet fourth quarter sales, got buyers wanting to meet the demand Moss Rocks! will bring.  Many were anxious to be one of the first to carry Moss Rocks!  It’s all good.  It’s a moss thing. Moss Rocks! will be available to purchase mid October, both in garden centers and on-line.

Please visit the yellow link below, Moss Rocks! Ordering Info, to sign up for notification of when they’re available.  For IGCs, click on the retail section, of the same form, to order wholesale on-line.

MOSS ROCKS! Ordering Info

Attending the Independent Garden Center show in Chicago was a mossium experience. David Spain was able to put faces to the names of so many people he met on-line through introductions from Helen Yoest, Moss and Stone Gardens – Where Moss Rocks! marketing strategists with Gardening With Confidence. (That’s me ;~\.)

Even though we will be busy selling Moss Rocks!, we will stay close to our mission of moss education.  Our blog will continue to communicate about moss, moss dish gardens, and moss Q & A. ~David Spain, co-owner, Moss and Stone Gardens – Where Moss Rocks!

Soon, Moss Rocks! will be rockin’ the Nation’s home and gardens, from the desk to the deck.  The moss used in Moss Rocks! was selected specifically for indoor use.  All moss naturally grows outside, given the right conditions,  but not all mosses thrive indoors.  Ours will; making Moss Rocks! adorable indoor decor.

Pebble power!

   Here’s more of what other’s are saying…

 There’s a reason why everyone is talking about Moss Rocks. The combination of the serenity of moss and the smooth simplicity of the porcelain “rock” makes them perfect for almost any space. They can be put in the garden for an unexpected surprise, displayed on a patio table or used indoors to decorate any room in the house. I predict that Moss Rocks are going to show up everywhere, from your neighbor’s garden to the hottest shelter magazine.  

~ Erin Schanen, author of the The Impatient Gardener.

 Bren Haas, author of BG Garden and #gardenchat, says “A stylish piece of art by God from the garden  that you can keep in your interior landscape.

Annie Haven with Authentic Haven Brand, Moo Poo Tea, says,  “I can’t wait to get my Moss Rocks here at the ranch I want one of each so I can have my own little Moss family <|;-)”

Pam Penick, author of Digging, says “How pretty and fun! After all the moss in Seattle, you’ll be able to sell oodles to the Flingers, I bet. ;-)

Chris Sabbarese with Corona Tools says, “If the Pet Rock met a Chia Pet, this would be their love child…Moss Rocks!”

Janit C, author of Two Green Thumbs, says “LOVE the new Moss Rocks!  Mini gardens unt themselves & cute as a button.  Wonderful colors fit into anywhere – inside or out!

Christopher Tidrick, From the Soil says, “Moss Rocks are one of the coolest new garden products I’ve seen in a long time. In a market where gift plants tend to be short-lived, these new moss mini-gardens promise to be chic, long-lasting and easy to grow. They’re the perfect living gift, even for non-gardeners.”

Bruce Bailey, Where Plants Rock says, “A hip and refreshing take on bringing the cool outdoors inside.  Table arrangements, hip bathroom, even putting place cards on the dining table. Moss is in and Moss Rocks is the hippest home item on the market.”

Katie Elzer-Peters, of Words says, “Moss Rocks really Rock! and they are Affordable, attractive indoor/outdoor decor.”

Wendy Rebman Bredensteiner, says  “Saw these in Chicago at the IGC. As cool as they appear! Imagine them on a teacher’s desk, in a college students dorm, an office cubicle. Want a little green that is easy to keep and hard to kill (and NOT artifical)? Will be ordering some of these for our store!”

Babs Hall, says “Totally agree. Our daughters both have their first apartments — they saw these on the website and said Oh we WANT…. :O)”
