Moss Killer for Hard Surfaces

The study of moss, liverworts and hornworts is bryology, with approximately 1000 species of moss within the UK, we have a number of species that can only be found within the UK. Mosses don’t have the ability to translocate water around a vascular system and are therefore reliant upon precipitation in the atmosphere; however they have developed sophisticated mechanisms which enable them to survive considerable periods of drought. Some species corkscrew their leaves up to prevent moisture loss, others have grey hair points that reflect heat. Sphagnum mosses even go to the length of manipulating their environment by acidifying it to exclude competition from other organisms: these become peat bogs. There is an argument to say that the individual sphagnum plant lives forever as it continues to grow above the substrate it has created, continually renewing itself.

Mosses are divided into two distinct forms, pleurocarps and acrocarps, Acrocarpous mosses are usually unbranched or almost so, and have an erect habit, like small trees. An example of a common acrocarp is Bryum capillare, this is commonly found on acidic soils, grasslands, woodland rides, soil banks and waste ground notable for its large (3.5–5 mm long), cylindrical, drooping capsules ripen in spring and summer, and are borne on a reddish seta (stem that supports the capsule) up to 3 cm tall. Acrocarps are never regularly pinnately (fern-like) branched but have a central stem and leaves coming off that stem.

Almost all pleurocarpous mosses are freely branched, often either pinnate or chaotic. They frequently form dense intricate mats of elaborately branched stems. A common garden moss is Rhytidiodelphus squarrosus, so named because of the squarose nature of the leaves which bend back upon themselves.
