A moss garden has opened in the Apothecary Garden

Мore than 40 species of moss from the middle belt of Russia.


A garden of mosses has opened in the Apothecary Botanical Garden. It is one of the largest exhibitions of its kind in Russia, and it presents about 40 species of moss from the middle belt, including rare mosses. The creators of the garden emphasize that it is not just a collection of plants, but a micro-landscape which precisely imitates a forest stream with snags and micro-waterfalls.

The composition is placed on an elevated table, so children and adults can examine the mosses in maximum detail. New elements will be introduced in the spring of 2023: moistening with the purest osmotic water and signs with the names of the mosses.
