      Moss, plus buttermilk, liquefied in the blender, and painted on where you want it to grow.

      I get the idea that the moss milkshake works better with some types of mosses then others. I tried it with the moss I have growing in the backyard, and all I got was a puke brown stain on the rocks where I put it.

      PLEASE NOTE:  What I plugged was "Turkish Speedwell ( Veronica Liwaeensis)."  This plant is NOT available even to nurseries as seeds!!  There are several hundred varieties of "Speedwells"  many are available as seeds, and several places tried to sell me seeds for other variants of "Speedwells".

       

      I now believe that one original 3" plant can become 5+  by the end of the first season.  I quickly learned to split one into two,  then two into four.

      I personally think that the buttermilk with whipped cream will work best on Kate Moss and almost any plant that is Turkish isn't available in the US.

      I tried some Thyme once. Can't remember the type. It was sage green and as it spread kept dying in the center. So it looked like thyme circles.

      That went to the compost heap. Found some other kind that grows so fast it crosses the rails almost over night. 

      I'm done with ground covers. I use a ground cover called "Roundup" now. Works great. No pruning, watering or anything required.

      You mean to tell me there was an album inside.
