Description

This is a fully-illustrated guide to the magical world of moss. Moss is all around us. While it is most often associated with damp, shady spaces, it can be found in the most unexpected and far-flung places, from deserts to Antarctica. This book is a celebration of its quiet, unassuming beauty and a primer to understanding the secrets of the world’s most ancient plant: discover the fascinating history of this soft and tactile plant which has been used in gardens, for medicine and in traditional handicrafts around the world for centuries; learn how and where to identify and gather different moss species; and take a tour of some of the most beautiful moss gardens in the UK, the US, and Japan, where moss viewing has become a national phenomenon.
