Hey Suzanne, Thanks for sending the photos via email. I’ll get back with you regarding moss species that will resolve your problem. After this latest heatwave, the situation may have already changed.

Greetings Renee, I’m so glad that you like my book, The Magical World of Moss Gardening. It’s exciting for me to find out that it is available in France. I do offer autographed copies on my Web site for people living in the US but I have found it cost-prohibitive to ship internationally.
