Make A Moss Planter
Green up a shady spot by creating a stylised shape using moss, wire mesh and landscape fabric, planting the centre with a shade-loving species. Collect moss from the garden, levering it up with a flat knife or buy it in sheets from a nursery.
To hang the planter use a loop of sturdy wire to push two or three hanging chains into the shape then use the wire to secure the chains to the mesh frame.
TIP For shapes to be positioned in a pot or garden bed there is no need to cover the back with moss.
TIP Pure wool felt or sturdy cotton canvas can also be used.
TIP Use a special mix for hanging pots if the shape is to be suspended.
