Kara Sundlun, co-host of WFSB’s Better Connecticut never went “mossing” before…so when she came to visit me at Connecticut Country house, I showed her just how easy it is to use this favorite year round go-to for all my indoor (and outdoor) decorating finishing touches.

Enjoy the video, and Happy Mossing!

Love, Nora

    Nora, I love the way you pat the moss. Sort of like it is a “pet”. How sweet!

    I’ll have to forage I’m the woods for my moss! My mother used to make dish gardens at Christmastime for the Franciscan nuns in New Milford and we would always look for moss along the roads in Brookfield and
    Roxbury-Bridgewater. I have a med-size terrarium now-always misting the moss!

    When using moss at the base of a plant, understanding the moss should be kept moist, can watering the plant negatively effect the moss? Should the moss be picked up in order to water the plant?

      Hi Charlene!

      No need to pick up moss when watering….just water well, and the soil gets soaked as well as the moss…it’s a win-win! I leave the moss on the base for as long as it stays green. 🙂 Love, Nora

    Hi there Nora – hope you are well! I just harvested some moss from my yard – what about all the worms etc along with the moss? I want to use in the house, wouldn’t care if using in outdoor containers – haha! Stay healthy during this challenging time… you’re a bright spot in my day working from home. Thank you!! Kathy

      Hi Kathy! You must have very healthy soil! That’s great! Leave the moss outside and keep watered….it will stay green for some time!
      All the best, and please stay safe! Love, Nora
