Question: 1107-1514
My neighbor has pine trees along my north side. My day lilies now have only half a day of sunlight and moss has taken over the lawn in that area. Should I move the day lilies? Sue, Beckley, WV

Mort's Answer:
If you do not want to suffer remorse, let the situation dictate your alternatives. You could apply sour milk to kill the moss or slow the growth with the lime. The pines will not stop growing and providing too much shade for your day lilies. Move the lilies now while they are not in flower to a sunny location. You could cultivate the bed they are in now. Moss is a good green manure but you will get more blooms in the sun.
