Hi, can any one tell me off any good uses for feather moss, apart from bedding.Not sure I'm afraid. But I believe the feather mosses are protected species (in the UK).
Is the latin name "Sphágnum spp"?
Do you have a piv or a latin name it is easier to help, since i dont know the english words.
the feather moss is either a pleurozium schreberi or eurhynchium praelonggum they are all from the feather moss family not the sphagnum moss family. I checked on the www.britishbryologicalsociety. org.uk and it did not come up proctected.
Drepanocladus vernicosus ?
There are several feather mosses that are protected in the UK. These include:
Drepanocladus vernicosus - Slender Green Feather-moss
Rhynochostegium rotundifolium - Round-leaved Feather-moss
Thamnobryum angustifolium - Derbyshire feather-moss
The two you listed are OK though ...
