Our online Moss Shop offers an expanded inventory of moss types. We are your best source for live mosses providing types previously unavailable in the moss market. Even our common mosses are exemplary mature colonies that often feature sporophytic stages. Moss trays arrive live and fresh ready to plant. Our rescued mosses from WNC are now living as far away as Oregon and New York City, and closer to home, Atlanta. We are excited to provide mosses to the Arnold Arboretum affiliated with Harvard University! This week at a Missouri high school, Future Farmers of America will be learning about the benefits of mosses as they make their own terrarium. Committed to providing quality products we are pleased with the positive feedback...
~~“I received the box this afternoon. I'm very pleased. The mosses/lichens are beautiful. I'll be ordering few more plants soon.”
~~“Greetings from a garden with moss that seems to be "taking," especially following recent rains. I'm writing to say thank you again for my moss trays and for teaching me a bit about moss even on your busy schedule.”

May Special - Specialty Cladonia Lichens provided as a courtesy with ALL Moss Tray Orders. Limited time offer until May 31, 2011.
Having conducted our moss cultivation R&D (through the WNC AgOptions Grant received in 2010), we are moving forward with expanded nursery operations at a new location. We are setting up field production for both shade and sun moss types. For landscapers and green roofers, we are now propagating pre-vegetated mats for green roofs and moss lawns that will facilitate ease of installation. For event and wedding planners, we have moss table runners that stay green and alive; don't make any mess; and can be reused again and again. Soon we will be taking orders for these new product lines. Thanks to Betsy Smith for sharing her land and helping us keep moving forward with this aspect of our growing moss business.
