In 1852, the Accademia dei Georgofili of Florence, the first public society of agrarian studies in Europe, instructed a specially instituted commission headed by marquis Pietro Torrigiani,
to found a horticultural society in Tuscany.
In September of that same year, the commission instituted an exhibition in the Palazzo della Crocetta, as an "exploratory assay of the capability of Tuscans to cultivate Flower and Vegetable Gardens".
The favourable outcome of the event led to the birth in 1854 of the Tuscan Society of Horticulture
with the purpose of promoting "the love and taste for Horticulture;
and primarily through public shows and prizes".
It was also the responsibility of the Society to create an experimental garden
to promote "knowledge of good horticultural practises".
