Observes that botany has long been neglected in Britain, but that it is now 'cultivated with considerable success', and that 'the management of the Flower-Garden, is thought necessary to complete the education of the fashionable female'. The essay is not intended 'to go into the more abstruse parts of the science, but to give some precepts easily retained, and highly useful to the lovers of Botany'.
