In addition to being the first horticulturist in Portugal to publish a catalogue with the products sold in his establishment, Marques Loureiro created the Practical Horticulture Journal (Jornal de Horticultura Pratica), published between 1870 and 1892, a true work of reference in the horticulture field. Many were the collaborators who sought to inform on what was being achieved internationally in the field.
