Excerpt from The Horticultural Register, and General Magazine, Vol. 1: July, 1831-December, 1832
Such will be nature of the present Work, that Gardening in all its branches, will be the leading feature; but sensible that what is of real benefit to ourselves, as practical Gard... eners, would also be useful to other persons similarly situated, and being aware of. The very close connection in many instances, which subsists between Horticulture and Natural History generally, and that to connect them in this Work would not only present to its readers, subjects highly interesting, and at the same time agreeable and delightful sources of recreation, but also be truly valuable. In the selection of our articles, great care will be taken to insert only such as will answer the desired end, and as far as the limits of our Magazine will allow, no expense whatever shall be spared to illustrate the different subjects on which we treat, by neat engravings.
