How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
All plants are dug and immediately taken to our warehouse and tera-sorb moisture retention gel is applied to the roots and then wrapped in plastic to retain superior moisture for transit. They are placed in corogated cardboard shipping boxes for protection when shipped
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Moss Has Many Uses in your Landscaping Design
We boast a large collection of mosses, a type of ancient plant that can survive many different climates, is extremely biodiverse and makes for good ground cover in any garden setting. Mosses grow well in plant hardiness zones 4-10. Mosses do not bloom, but the variety of moss species available makes combining different types a very eye-catching garden scene. Some gardeners even prefer to grow moss in containers, often called fairy gardens, because they can mimic grassy hills on a small scale and tell a story. The height of moss at maturity is not tall, making it optimal for ground cover or container gardens. Mosses grow only a few centimeters to a foot high. Most prefer moist soil and can increase the humidity for surrounding plants that may prefer higher humidity levels.
Moss Perfers Shaded Areas
There are moss varieties that prefer sun or shade, though most common varieties prefer at least partial shade since mosses have evolved to be on the ground, on rocks, and the surfaces of other plants, mostly trees. Mosses do not grow like typical rooted plants, since they propagate from spores. Some mosses grow in mounds, creating a small hilly look, and some grow in carpets. Common moss types include the common haircap, which can grow up to 16 inches tall. The fern moss is another type that can grow quite fast and is easy to grow. Baby tooth moss prefers partial shade but will grow in everything from clay to sandy types of medium. Pincushion moss grows in such a way that it looks like a tiny pincushion, giving it its name.
