Re: CULT: Ultra Dawn and Moss

Hi Al and Iris Talk mates,

I too have moss growing in part of one of my iris beds, which is also amended red clay.  I had good bloom in that bed with many increases this year in spite of a very wet spring.  Fewer weeds came up in the moss covered areas, I assume because their seeds had a tough time germinating through the green mat that covered the soil around the rhizomes.  I realize that moss is most likely an indicator of soggy, poorly drained soil, but does the moss itself do any harm?

  I've had a problem with moss in an iris bed. Soil is red clay amended 
  with old promix and leaf mold. Al Bullock
