Looking good Russ, what have you used for your over growth on the embankments?

Martin, i used moss which grows in woodlands, its free and looks good, i just need to spray it with hair spray and that will seal it and stop it rotting

Lol, tut tut, you are breaking the countryside code :!:

I dont think that it really matters! It will only grow back again, plus it could be damaging to whatever it is growing on! :lol:

It shouldnt be illegal. It is illegal to, dig blue bells, remove bark, take anything from the beach.

It's the law. I think it's a reasonable one.

ECO WARRIOR!!

Im sure taking a bit of moss wont kill anyone (or any rare endangered plants either)

But then again if you pick the WRONG PIECE the entire world might combust :roll:

Perhaps it shouldn't apply to moss, but if everyone though, oh, I'll go and dig up some bluebells, there wouldn't be any left now, would there?

This is true, however i doubt that moss has the same 'pretty-looking' appeal that bluebells have...

I guess its just because its part of the eco system and youre not allowed to mess with that, unless youre a farmer with crops that need mass-fertilizing of course

Hi guys, i'm a 5 year collage trained gardener, i know what to pick and what not to, if it was illegal i would not do it. i dont think taking a bit moss from a rotting tree in middle of a wood is a crime
