A technique of planting where the roots and soil are wrapped in a ball of moss and decoratively bound by string to hold everything together. Besides hanging from of string, these moss balls can be placed on decorative plates to be used as feature pieces. They are a breeze to dress up for special events and also make fantastic gifts.
