As with all other gardeners I have always had to deal with moss. Possibly more than others because about 60% of my garden does not see any sunlight for about 6 months of the year. I have chosen to lift it off the stone, brickwork or even the surface of the soil and dump it. However this this year (obviously) there is even more than normal. I am tempted to treat it like any other weed and hoe it. Normally rooted (whatever that means) weeds tend to die when the head and root are separated and hence I just leave them where they finish, on or just under the surface of the soil. If I do this with moss will I be multiplying the growth. I am sure I was told this many years ago before I got some experience. I know I am playing fast and loose with the term gardener by applying it to myself but nobody knows everything. Any help much appreciated.
