Moss Gardening: Including Lichens, Liverworts, and Other Miniatures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mosses tell an ancient success story of longevity as well as dispersion; they appear in fossils 400 million years old and total 15,000 species from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Landscaping expert George Schenk shows how to propagate and cultivate various mosses for rock gardens, as a lawn substitute, and for use in miniature gardens or containers. 97 color photos.

Book News Annotation:

A marvellous, fully color-illustrated, and thorough treatise on both common and unusual mosses, lichens, and liverworts, with descriptions for transplanting, propagating, and growing them as groundcovers, in containers, and for bonsai arrangements.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
