New Zealand - A land of forests, mountains,
rivers and lakes. An island country in the South Pacific
where nature rules, where 'clean and green' is the image
In the solitude of a forest swamp, precious
Sphagnum Moss is carefully harvested. The moss is air dried,
and then transformed into basket liners, orchid growing
medium and florists' supplies.
New Zealand Sphagnum Moss grows in the temperate
lands of the West Coast of the South Island. Here, the blend
of rain and sun promotes the perfect growing environment
allowing us to harvest every five years. Farming in step
with nature for an everlasting supply.
Our moss is lining hanging baskets in Britain, Europe,
Asia and North America.
The freshly picked moss is air-dried
and compressed for ease of use. Add water and the moss will
literally expand before your eyes into a super absorbent
basket liner. In fact, Just Moss liners are the only basket
liners that absorb so much water and retain that water,
helping maintain your plants in top condition.
Sphagnum Moss can hold about 20 times its own weight. That
means that a 14"/350mm liner which contains about 150
grams of Moss, can hold about 3 litres of water.
No other liner product has this amount of
water absorbing and holding ability.
that can cause decay to the roots of plants are nullified
by the zinc based antiseptic properties of Sphagnum Moss.
This naturally occuring 'antibiotic'
is called Tropolene.
