Review:

"[An] informative guide to a unique style of gardening." --Publishers Weekly

"The author flawlessly blends botanical descriptions and artistic sensibilities so that evocative summaries, accompanied by vivid photos, help readers understand the tactile and visual delights of moss, as well as its environmental benefits. . . . perfect for anyone interested in growing moss. A viable alternative to lawns, moss is thoroughly explained in this one-of-a-kind tome from the owner of Mountain Moss Enterprises in North Carolina." --Library Journal starred review

"The Magical World of Moss Gardening covers everything you need to know to get started with moss gardening." --Kitsap Sun

"Any conversation about the nuanced delights of moss gardening is usually overshadowed by lawn bores wanting to know how to eradicate the stuff. Here is the antidote. Martin's whistle-stop survey of moss gardens from Japan to North America should convert even diehard moss-militants." --The Financial Times

"Comprehensive, inspirational, and full of information, this is a fascinating books for anyone wanting to truly broaden the range of plants they grow...a very useful guide." --Gardens Illustrated

"The bible for mossers." --Asheville Citizen-Times

"Instead of eradicating this deer-resistant, pest-resistant, rootless, stemless wonder of a plant, Martin tells us how to encourage and cultivate it...Seeing these hushed and serene gardens makes me hope our climate continues to oblige in future summers." --Pacific Northwest Magazine

"Down-to-earth advice on how to make the best use of bryophytes in the garden, with profiles of 25 of the most useful species." --The Professional Gardener

"In her new book, Martin offers a realistic path to success with this plan, the 'other' green ground cover...Whether you're a newcomer or a (somewhat) experienced grower who wants a successful moss landscape, the book offers insights and options to help you reach your goal." --About.com

"As informed and informative as it is beautifully illustrated and thoroughly 'user friendly' in content and presentation, The Magical World of Moss Gardening is very highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review

"The Magical World of Moss Gardening will encourage and inspire anyone new to moss gardening." --Pumpkin Beth

From the Back Cover:

Mosses are a gardener's dream. These emerald beauties thrive where nothing else grows, and they provide year-round interest in all climates. Deer-resistant and immune to typical garden insects and diseases, mosses offer erosion control and help prevent water run-off. Try placing these magical plants between rocks, along pathways, or even as a lawn for a velvety green backdrop. The variations in color, texture, shape, and even size will amaze you. In this inspiring guide, Annie Martin--Mossin' Annie to her fans--covers the essentials for creating an extraordinary moss garden. With profiles of the best mosses to grow and expert tips on planting and care, you can create fascinating combinations and establish a verdant oasis to enjoy for years to come.
