1831. Elizabeth Kent_s works are transitional between literary accounts about plants and systematic, scientific accounts. Her Flora Domestica, or the Portable Flower Garden, for which she is best known, and Sylvan Sketches, integrate nature and narrative, science and art, horticulture and romantic languages of nature in ways that signify changing directions in early 19th century plant culture, looking forward to a more scientific approach to the subject. Sylvan Sketches describes 80 hardy trees and shrubs common in England, providing factual information about the plants along with their cultural associations and usages in other parts of the world, citing explorers and travel writers.
