Retailers — now offer customers two moss products !

1) Moss Milkshakes

*Bonus: For an initial order of 3 cases or more, Moss Acres is pleased to offer at no charge, an attention-grabbing indoor/outdoor point-of-purchase display stand that features an eyecatching sign. We believe that positioning this near your shade-loving plants or high traffic areas will help you sell more Moss Milkshakes.

If ordering over the phone at 866.GET.MOSS or via info@mossacres.com, the price is $120 for 1 to 9 cases, and $108 for 10+ cases. Shipping: $9 per case.

Merchandising the Moss Milkshake in Your Store

The Moss Milkshake sells from nearly any department in your store. Here’s where retailers have placed the product for best results:

  • Place it near the grass seed
  • Arrange it near rain barrels
  • Show it with shade plants
  • Put it near the pH testers
  • Impact the impulse buyer
  • Grab the gift buyer
  • Feature it with ferns
  • Accent the acid-lovers
  • Spot it near the sprinklers

Packaging and directions

Dry moss fragments come pre-ground in a 1/2-gallon "milk" carton, with growth stimulants and a water-retention gel powder. Customers sprinkle this mixture onto bare soil or stone and then water. Or they can first mix contents in a pail with water, forming a slurry, and then apply to surface. The area then must then routinely be kept moist for the first few weeks until moss fragments start to grow and fill in. Within about six months a new carpet of moss will form.

Why a Moss Milkshake?

Moss Acres www.MossAcres.com has been offering home gardeners and landscaping professionals live moss in large and small quantities for shade gardens since 2002. With the public embracing environmentally friendly products and an ever-increasing interest in moss in general, Moss Acres has decided the time is right to take moss out of the closet and into the mainstream with an introductory moss gardening kit for retailers — the Moss Milkshake.

We continue to be amazed — and pleased — at how many moss enthusiasts are out there, and we are highly confident our Moss Milkshake (MSRP $19.99) will turn heads and stimulate both impulse and gift purchases year-round. With an unlimited shelf life, high margins, and an eye-catching package design that utilizes a half-gallon "milk" carton covered with images

Find out why we repeatedly heard the following comments from garden center owners during our preliminary product launch at the Independent Garden Center Show in Chicago in September 2009, and at our official product launch at the Atltanta Gift Mart in January 2010: "What a great idea," "I love this," "This is perfect for my customers," "Finally!" and "What is your minimum order?" (It's just one case of 12 "shakes.")

2) Live Moss Garden Packs

Instant effect - complete coverage - higher cost.

(Twelve 9 0z. packs per case)

 

The Live Moss Garden Packs contain two (2) square feet of sheet and clump mosses, conveniently packaged and ready to plant.

Instant Moss Garden — “Sod versus Seed

Live mosses are for the gardener who wants an instant moss garden. The mosses are dried and dormant and will rehydrate and start growing as soon as they are
watered. Planting is as easy as dunking each piece in water and tamping on the ground.

 

Customers feel good about buying a product that is:

  • packaged in a biodegradable, compostable bag
  • eco-friendly because it requires no fertilizer, herbicide, or pesticide ever, and no watering once established, which takes only a few weeks.

 

Merchandising Live Moss Garden Pack is easy anywhere in the store. See the list of merchandising ideas for Moss Milkshake at the left. Like the Moss Milkshake, Live Moss Garden Packs contain only dry mosses, which means they have an extended shelf life.

Packaging and directions

  • The Live Moss Garden Pack contains two square feet total
    of three live mosses, which come dried and dormant:
        Sheet mossHypnum imponens
        Broom mossDicranum scoparium
        Cushion mossLeucobryum glaucum
  • Extended shelf life — all dry ingredients mean the mosses will last for several months if merchandized or stored in a dry spot.
  • Covers 2 square feet, or can be spread out to cover slightly more ground.
  • Directions included inside the cover insert. Click here to view and download directions.
  • Packaged in a clear biodegradable, compostable bag with colored insert and directions on reverse
  • Dimensions: Pack - 12 1/2 W” x 12 1/4 L”. Case - 24” x18” x12”
  • Each pack weighs 9 oz.
  • Moss is not recommended for arid climates or indoor use
  • Established mosses go dormant outdoors in winter

The Live Moss Garden Pack is ideal for:

  • Japanese gardens
  • Rock gardens
  • Water features
  • Pathways
  • Fern gardens
  • Patios
  • Rain gardens
  • Fairy gardens
  • Terrariums

Customers feel good about mosses

Your customers will leave knowing that they have in hand mosses that are (pardon our moss snobbery):

  • Live (and meant to stay that way)
  • Meant to be planted outside in the shade and nurtured until established
  • True mosses, unlike “dried and dyed” substitutes used as decoration
  • Sustainably gathered on private land — not wild harvested from public forests in the northwestern United States where overharvesting raises the risk of certain mosses going extinct
  • The most environmentally friendly plants in the store!
