Intended as a quarterly, but advertised as a 'weekly miscellany' after the publication of the first issue. An advertisement, placed in the Monitor on 16 August 1828, states that the Blossom will 'appear on Thursday evening the [?] of August, for the first time in that shape, and will continue to be published every succeeding Thursday at four o'clock'.
