Excerpt from The British Florist, 1846, Vol. 1 of 6: Or Lady's Journal of Horticulture

The Florist's Journal was projected for the express purpose of supplying a desideratum in floral literature, which had long been apparent to the proprietors and the conductor, and complained of by the most eminent professional florists. There was no periodical at a moderate price, the general principles explained in which had any claim to philosophy, or consistency with nature; the practical directions were, in no case, the bona fide productions of first rate cultivators, or the illustrations directly taken from first-rate flowers, and faithfully represented. On the contrary, the cheaper journals were mere gatherings of scraps, of no great value individually, and useless as a whole, from the want of connexion and bearing upon any general principle. They were, in fact, the mere bodies of journals without any spirit; and thus the purchasers of them just looked at the pictures, and then laid them aside. Nor could it well be otherwise; for not one of them could possibly have originated from a desire to improve the art; and so badly were some of the editors qualified for their duties, that, in a holograph letter by one of them, now lying before us, there is not one grammatical sentence, or any two sentences which have the least logical connexion. Then, the illustrations were just what the parties could get, and how they could get them; and truly they represented a new floral world, as different from Nature's own Flora as can well be imagined. Even this was not all, nor the worst. Men of ignorant or ill-trained minds are always prone to fall into idolatry of some kind or other; and so the parties under consideration contrived to set up a whole pantheon of Josses, some of them most whimsical ones.
