How can I get moss out of my perennial beds? They are not shady or damp but the moss still grows. Is there any killer safe?

You can use Lily Miller Moss Out which will kill the existing moss but you may simply want to use a hoe to scrape it off the soil surface and then spread some compost over the area and dig it into the soil. The compost will help loosen the soil and might be just neutral enough to change the soil's pH (moss grows best in acidic soil) which will help keep the moss from growing there again. The more organic matter your soil has, the better the drainage. And, the less compacted it will be. Give it a try. Best wishes with your flower beds.
