Moss boxes

Moss boxes
Rectangular trays create drama

Copper trays contain Irish moss and Scotch moss. They don't have drain holes but work well for temporary display (2 - 3 weeks).

Irrigate about once a week and drain excess water by turning each tray upside down over a sink (with one hand over the moss to keep it in place). Or drill drain holes in the bottom and display trays on pavers or plastic.

For a similar effect, substitute wood boxes.

Copper trays: 6 1/4 inches square by 1 1/2 inches tall; $9 each from Smith & Hawken (800/981-9888).
