Maybe sombody else might advise where you can buy in the UK.
You could also Use Crotchet netting
I've used the one above from Aquatic Magic to great effect. You can get the same stuff from B&Q but you'll also need suckers and mini zipties so the cost might even it's self up.
could use bonsai netting what they put in the pots quiet cheap
My advice from experience is, because i wanted something that looked like a moss wall right from the start, not to use the sandwich method.
Instead i used a very firm and rigid plastic base (i got white and regretted it straight away - if you can find brown or green then all the better)
I covered the front with 5mm black netting and then took some time to 'sew' the moss onto the netting. I used a clear strong thread we use to stretch cross stich over a mount frame. so you can't see its there and it doesn't degrade in the water (yet!)
Picture of what i ended up with, hope it helps (its mounted using small suction cups). Sorry i don't have the links for the products i used because i bought most of it on the high street.
I have used the mesh from aquaticmagic to great effect to and would recommend it, see my journal for photos.
