From the Publisher
Through close readings of individual serials and books Sarah Dewis examines the significant contributions John and Jane Webb Loudon made to the gardening press and democratic discourse. Vilified during their lifetimes by some sections of the press, they were innovatory in emphasizing the value of scientific knowledge and the acquisition of taste. Their publications are placed in the context of book, media, education, garden and urban social history and womens journalism.
