Talkback: Moss

Our concrete  roof tiles have chunks of moss on them, we were advised by a surveyer to remove it.

On removing some, we find it has eaten into the tiles so this years job is to remove it all.

I agree but our grass was all moss with plantain daisy and dandelion, by the summer it was all grass, beautiful.

My OH always used a 5 pronged fork on the farm for picking up pats, he still has it, its most useful. Anyone know what that is called?

Have you saved some seeds, it may be a bit early, i will sow mine 2nd week in March. You cant plant out till after frost have gone and last year that was nealy June.

By then they could become leggy, keep pinching out to create a 

bushy plant if they do germinate.

Maybe if I was a millionaire I would use it but a 30.00 to 40.00 a metre its right out of the question.

I have never done that, i just put a small pinch into individual modules, that way you dont need to transplant, i would be there forever if i had to do that as i grow hundreds of them.

I have tried several lawn feeds and find the best is Westland feed, weed and moss killer, my grass was fantastic after this, almost deep sea green coloured and no weeds, really worked well.

Give it a good raking first.

April- Seed sowing

Posted: 11/01/2014 at 13:15

I am leaving most of mine till april, if its the same as last 

year, i couldnt plant out till June anyway and by then the early sown 

plants where getting straggly.


They will germinate quicker because hopefully it will be a bit warmer. However, i do find that lobelia benefits from early sowing, could you set those before and ask someone to keep an eye on them.
