Gardeners of Wake County

February 16th Club Meeting

   David Spain - Moss Gardens. -
The most common question I receive about moss gardening is from people who have decided to give up on their grass lawn in shady areas where naturally occurring mosses have crept in. They ask, “How do I eliminate the remaining grass?”

Visitors are welcome.
