It’s time to spread the moss word. So, I’m ready to write my first moss gardening book entitled, The Magical Realm of Eco-friendly Mosses – A Practical Guide to Moss Gardening Projects. My book will provide insights into the aesthetic, botanical and environmental reasons for choosing mosses which will distinguish it in the marketplace. Written in a conversational style that will appeal to the lay person, this easy-to-read guide will serve as a valuable reference to gardeners, landscapers, environmentalists, and educators around the world. Enhanced by impressive color photographs, the book will be published in a variety of eBook formats as well as a soft-bound cover version.
Growing Interest in MOSSES
As people have become more environmentally-conscious, there has been a growing interest in mosses. These amazing plants are not only beautiful with their year-round green but they offer solutions to environmental concerns of groundwater contamination, erosion control, and reducing air pollution. Because of their unique botanical characteristics, mosses require NO chemicals – NO fertilizers, NO pesticides, and NO herbicides – in contrast to common practices used in traditional landscaping and lawn maintenance.
It has been a challenge for gardeners to move beyond myths and generalizations about these miniature plants and to proceed with proven methods for success that are bryophyte specific. Indeed, all mosses don’t just live on the north side or in the shade. In fact, there are many types that even tolerate sun exposures. Many people have expressed interest in the publication of a moss book that highlights a variety of innovative and sustainable approaches for “greening” our urban environments.
The Magical Realm of Eco-friendly Mosses will fill an information void on topics not covered in current books and address key questions left unanswered. By promoting the benefits of mosses as a horticultural choice and providing expert planting advice, this book will enable people to embrace these fascinating plants! Mossin’ Annie will demonstrate how mosses can be featured in innovative designs, sustainable landscapes, moss lawns, living walls and green roofs.
