Identify and Manage Mosses in the Landscape
December 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The cool, damp climate of Maine and northern New England is perfect for mosses. Bill Cullina, author of newly reissued Native Ferns, Moss & Grasses, will briefly cover a dozen of the most common moss species growing everywhere from sidewalks to lawns, damp boreal forests to bogs. Helpful lessons on moss anatomy and ecology, which native ferns combine well with mosses, and how to ethically and successfully introduce mosses into a site without harming existing moss ecology will feature in the discussion. Q&A will follow at the end of the one-hour presentation.
In partnership with the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens presents the Green Spotlight Series, featuring local and national green industry researchers, instructors, and field professionals discussing topics valuable to peer professionals. The variety of topics on offer are geared towards a diverse range of landscape-related professionals, from nursery and flower farmers to arborists, landscapers, gardeners, and landscape designers/architects. MELNA members are eligible for the CMBG member price and will earn recertification credits; several sessions will count toward the State of Maine’s pesticide license recertification.
