Q.A Moss-like Growth On A Bramble Thorn

Zone Berkshire | Anonymous added on August 22, 2021 | Answered

When out on a walk in the rural berkshire lanes, I stumbled across a patch of large, fruit bearing brambles – that seemed to carry a large abundance of a pink-green moss-like growths all across the branches. They varied in size – some being a couple centimetres in diameter, and others reaching the size of a tennis ball.
