Background:

These hand-colored prints are from early editions of The Floricultural Cabinet, edited by Joseph Harrison.

The magazine featured articles on different varieties of flowers found in British gardens, answers to readers questions on the care of their flowers and other gardening issues, and synopsis of articles found in other horticultural magazines of the period including Curtis's Botanical Magazine, Paxton's Magazine of Botany and Benjamin Maund's Botanic Garden.

As an example of advice provided to the gardener, following  is "the most effectual method of destroying ants that we have ever tried":

     "Take equal quantities of loaf sugar, arsenic, and finely powdered dried bread; rub them
     together in a mortar till they are very well mixed.  This should be kept in a bottle, in readiness
     for laying small quantities near their haunts.  Great care is requisite in the use of this mixture
     for it is injurious to vegetable as well as animal life."
