Hi,
moss has invaded some of my outdoor flower pots. Can anyone suggest a method of killing it off without damaging the flowers.

Try another tack....just remove it along with some of the tired earth, freshen up the pots with a top dressing of compost and maybe some gravel to make them look smart. I think it's just something that happens after a wet winter.

Wouldn't moss at the base complement your flowers? No?

Or am I missing the point?

If you have moss in your flower pots, then possibly they are in the wrong place? Too much shade? Too much damp? Not enough sun? Flowers appreciate sun (generally) and mosses require shade.
