Moss Gardens - Experiments in Tiny Gardens & Source Materials

my-little-moss-gardenI’ve always found moss fascinating. The way it grows on flat surfaces like a carpet. How it can have teeny little leaves or fronds like grass.

Along with the renewed interest in terrariums, more and more people are creating moss gardens. Gardeners have beenĀ using it to naturalize outdoor spaces for years but adding moss to fairy gardens and terrariums is something that has become wildly popular in the last few years.

I don’t claim to be an expert. Like so many others, I am still trying to find my way to keeping my bits of fuzzy green-ness growing. My first moss garden turned into a massive stink pot when a family member put it into the sun. I had a bit of water sitting among the rocks and ended up growing a luscious bloom of algae. Yuck.

I’m extending my moss gardens to a pair of simple experiments as well as residents of my terrarium and fairy garden. I will be trying out the recommendations of experts and letting you know if I find things that work well, work somewhat or fail completely. I’ll also share with you some places you can purchase things for your own moss gardens online.

It’s my ultimate hope that we can learn about moss gardening together and create the perfect ecosystems to keep these wonderful little plants alive and thriving.
