Excerpt from The Floral World and Garden Guide, 1858, Vol. 1

This is to be emphatically an amateurs' journal, but the professional gardener is not to be shut out; by no means; he is to be welcomed warmly; for, though, like most other mortals, he may have his failings, to which we shall not shut our eyes, he claims our regard, and we acknow ledge that our hobby is constantly indebted to him and we feel assured that he can help us in establishing our fraternity of jolly gardeners.

N ow, we know that there are many ably-conducted gardening journals that concentrate in their pages evidences of the highest skill - journals that are ripe as to age, and up to the mark in all the departments they embrace and if we were to project a competitor, we should deserve to break down at the first step. But we do not aim at weakening any one of them, whether big or little; we would not willingly withdraw from them a single subscriber, nor do we expect to - for the simple reason, that we open our pages to a class of readers whose wants are not met by any of the existing gardening periodicals. 'if a man has extensive ranges of orchard houses, and pineries, and vineries, and forcing pits, and counts his roses by the thousand, he does not need the help of a little monthly adviser in gardening; but for amateurs with moderate means and ambi tion to excel in the various practices of horticulture, and in the ?oral decoration of the garden, greenhouse, conservatory, and the windows of the dwelling, there is and has long been a need for a cheap and practical medium of intelligence and intercommunication and here it is - the floral world - its price within the means of all, and, we trust, so planned as to be universally accept-able.

Repeating the terms of our prospectus, it will be devoted entirely to gardening subjects, and no subsidiary topics will be allowed to interfere with the full consideration of these, as represented in the several depart ments of plant-houses, ?ower, fruit, and vegetable culture, garden scenes and embellishments, the management of allotment lands, ?ower shows, and horticultural botany. These will be severally treated, in a simple and practical manner, by experienced pens, and the fullest attention will be given to communications from correspondents, whether seeking or con yeying information!
