moss propigation v. transplant
I have a moist shady area near the woods in my back yard that I would like to develop into a moss garden. There is a faint dusting of green developing naturally on the soil, but it hasn't changed much in the past month. Nearby, I have a few 6" by 2" patches of moss growing that must be moved. Also, I have a 12" by 36" patch near my front door that is developing naturally. It is between a dusting and visible tiny moss patches.
1) Is it better to transplant the 6" patches whole and wait for them to spread naturally, or to sacrafice them to the blender method?
2) How early in the front door moss' development can I move it?
