"Readers will ooh and ah while riffling through the pages of Oshima and Kimura's illustrated guide to miniature Japanese moss gardens." --Publishers Weekly "I full heartedly recommend this book. Having found a good bonsai store online and with the clear and beautiful illustrations at my side, I feel that even I could make a simple miniature moss garden." --Gardening Products Review "You can create your own miniature masterpiece with help from Megumi Oshima and Hideshi Kimura." --Garden Design Magazine "If you need more calm, green, space in your home, then you should take a look at Miniature Moss Gardens: Create Your Own Japanese Container Gardens. This beautifully illustrated book contains tons of photographs and illustrations to help you learn all about different kinds of moss and the small container gardens they can be used in." --Seattle Book Review "This is a charming book that encourages everyone with a busy life to let eternal green moss soothe the soul. More than just touchy-feely, the 128-page hardback book is an informative, descriptive guide to the art and science of growing the soft, clumping plant." --The Oregonian "I'd highly recommend this book for gardeners or nongardeners looking to green up their homes, office spaces, or small gardens." --Washington Gardener magazine "All the information you could want about moss is included in this book: parts of moss, types of moss, when to gather moss and tools for collecting moss and for creating your own miniature moss garden...Even if you've never considered starting a moss garden, this book will make you into a moss fan. This beautiful, informative, and fun book is well worth reading." --San Francisco Book Review "...once one starts reading it, one realizes the wealth of information and advice to which one now has access." --The Journal of the Japanese Garden Society
About the Author
Megumi Oshima was born in Saitama prefecture. Raised among abundant nature in the countryside near the Tonegawa river, Oshima became familiar with plants. While working for a production company, she started to grow bonsai and kokedama on the balcony of her Tokyo apartment. Oshima left her production company job and began working in garden management for flower markets and hotels. In 2006 she opened garden store Midoriya Nicogusa in Kichijoji, Tokyo, and began running workshops on bonsai and kokedama. Oshima is a plant consultant and interior coordinator. Hideshi Kimura is a member of Japan Horticulture Society Tray Landscape Artis. After obtaining his bonsai master license, he began making moss tray landscapes more than 20 years ago and to date has made more than 2000 works. Not limited to bonsai pots, he has received acclaim for his original designs, which incorporate driftwood, bamboo and so on as receptacles. Kimura runs moss tray classes and is an instructor at Minamisunamachi Culture Center in Tokyo's Koto ward.

Informative and attractive book.

I got this to use in making a moss terrarium with my grandson. Although it is an adult book and very informative, it has excellent photographs and graphic illustrations to make it interesting to a young person. Covers all kinds of interesting ways to use moss in indoor and outdoor settings and tells you what you need to do to keep moss happy. Highly recommend!

Kindle edition: really difficult to read because formatting is off throughout the book with numbers transposed over text and text on text in the Moss Tips Sections. Writing style is juvenile as are the cartoon stick figures used to illustrate. This book is not worth the price.

Miniature Moss Gardens

I didn’t even know that one could use moss for plants! It was very interesting to know how to find moss. It’s around rocks or elsewhere. You have to look for it, which I would like to search for. Just to find it would be exciting! Mary R./ Amazon Customer
A simple book that is good for starters.

Very few pages and very small projects...I was expecting a little bit more so I found the book a little disappointing.
