The Essay defines 'picturesque' as 'a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture' (Essay on Prints, 2), but does not develop the definition." (ODNB) Among prints singled out for detailed consideration are Salvator Rosa's "Death of Polycrates," Waterloo's "Tobias," and Hogarth's "Rake's Progress." Finally, the collector is "cautioned against indulging a desire of becoming possessed of all the works of any master.

William Gilpin, Ruins at Canterbury, from (1774)
The picturesqueness of ruins, which exhibit the "roughness" Gilpin found so important, is made manifest in Gilpin's explanation of why a conventionally beautiful object, such as a formal piece of architecture, is out of place in a picture: "A piece of Palladian architecture may be elegant in the last degree.
At the time, Gilpin's early garden theory his his Dialogue was overshadowed by the 1756 essay on The Sublime and the Beautiful by the philosopher Edmund Burke (1729-1797).
His concept of "the Picturesque," first appearing in the Essay on Prints as an additional concept to "sublime" and "beautiful," was intended to encompass landscape appreciation in the paintings of Nicolas Poussin or Claude Le Lorain.

The Swedish Professor of Medicine and Botany, who in his definitive works Genera Plantarum and Species plantarum, classified each plant by using two words in Latin form, instead of adopting the descriptive phrases that had been in common use among the botanists and herbalists of his day. His garden at Uppsala is a living monument to his work.

Gertrude Jekyll’s book Wood and Garden (1899) had an enormous influence on the English (and hence the world’s) attitude to gardens. An artist of the Arts & Crafts Movement, she saw beauty in natural effects. She designed over 100 gardens during her collaboration with the younger architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. They first met in 1889 “. . . at a tea table, the silver kettle and the conversation reflecting rhododendrons, . . .” as Lutyens described it. She is associated with the garden at Bois des Moutiers, near Dieppe, and Hestercombe in Somerset.
Her planting designs were used at her own garden at Munstead Wood in Surrey, Broughton Castle in Oxfordshire, Manor House Upton Grey, Lindisfarne Castle in Northumberland, Hatchlands in Surrey and Knebworth in Hertfordshire. She also wrote Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden (1908), Wall and Water Gardens and Roses. More information on the official web site of the Jekyll estate.
One of the most influential plantsmen in the North of England in the 18th century, John Blackburne was a wealthy English landowner and owner of a saltworks in Liverpool who built extensive hothouses at his residence at Orford Hall near Warrington. The first to fruit pineapples in Lancashire, Blackburne maintained a large collection of succulent plants which were partly obtained from Lord Petre of Thorndon Hall, Essex. James Bolton, the Yorkshire botanical artist, praised his ” extensive collection of rare and valuable plants in a rich and beautiful garden “. His name, and that of his daughter Anna, is commemorated by the fan palm Sabal blackburniana.
