Moss Gardening: Including Lichens, Liverworts, and Other Miniatures
Moss Gardening is an exquisitely crafted book that will inspire broader exploration of these minute wonders.
Appearing in fossils 400 million years old and totaling 15,000 species from the Arctic to the Antarctic, mosses tell an ancient success story of longevity and dispersion. North America alone supports 1200 of them. George Schenk's beautiful book is perhaps the first to cover the whole gamut of moss gardening. Moss Gardening is sure to become a classic, not only because it covers "almost as much about the mechanics of moss gardening as the Kama Sutra does about dancing," but also for the author's entertaining writing style.
The book covers primitive miniatures (or cryptogams) which reproduce by spores: mosses, lichens, liverworts, lycopodiums, and selaginellas. The information on propagating, cultivating, and transplanting is applicable to gardens of practically any climate. Landscaping recommendations are offered for use in alpine and rock gardens, with flowering plants in borders, as a lawn substitute, and for use in miniature gardens.
