Art. I. A Retrospective View of the Progress of Horticulture
in the United States during the year 1846. By the EDITOR.
It has not been our good fortune, since our first annual summary of Horticultural Improvement, in 1838, to record such a general interest and wide spreading taste in Horticultural and Rural pursuits, as at the present period. The rapid changes in national prosperity from 1835 to 1845, a period of ten years, were attended with equally great fluctuations in the tastes and pursuits of large classes of the community, and until the last year or two, it can scarcely be said that a rapidly progressing zeal has been manifested in Horticultural and Rural occupations.
But a better day seems to be dawning : alive to the important benefits which result from a more thorough knowledge of the art of cultivation, we find a more active interest taken in every thing which relates to gardening. He who possesses a spot of ground, even if his taste has not been cultivated sufficiently to fully appreciate it, feels it no less his duty than his pride to go forward in the march of improvement, and plant trees, either for profit or ornament, that they may be valuable at a future day, if not at the present moment. It is not an individual taste which impels the public now, but a general coöperation to carry out improvements which have too long been left neglected or abandoned. Such a state of prosperity is cheering to every cultivator, and it should be the aim of all interested in a pursuit so conducive to the morals and happiness of a people, to encourage and foster so laudable a zeal.
