Mosses

Asked May 7, 2016, 4:18 PM EDT

Is growing a moss garden possible in Fargo? I have always loved the look and texture of mosses. I would love to design and install a moss garden. I would like your opinion about growing moss in this area. Thank you. Susan

It is definitely possible to grow moss in Fargo. I receive many calls from people trying to get rid of moss that has taken over their lawns! You need to start with a moist, shady area. The north side of your house or under the shade of a tree is best.

Here is a resource from the University of New Hampshire on how to create a moss slurry: http://extension.unh.edu/resources/resource/1310/How_to_Grow_Moss

Here is another good resource: http://bryophytes.science.oregonstate.edu/page32.htm

Good luck with your project!
