Create your own Kokedama (Japanese Moss ball) with expert gardener; Lana Doss at our East Ottawa location at 1390 Windmill lane, Ottawa.
"What is a Kokedama?"
The art of Kokedama literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball.
It is a form of Japanese garden art tied to bonsai and is the practice of taking the root ball of a plant and suspending it in a mud ball, which is then coated with moss. The moss ball can be fixed to a driftwood or a burl, placed on a tray or saucer, added to an apothecary jar or suspended from a string.
