Ian Young Awarded Veitch Memorial Medal by RHS
« on: April 06, 2020, 03:48:35 PM »
Tremendously proud of Ian Young of Scottish Rock Garden Club who has been today been awarded the Veitch Memorial Medal by the RHS - my hero!!
Sadly  because  of  the  coronavirus  restrictions  Ian couldn't  travel and  anyway the RHS award  ceremony  was  postponed, so just  celebrating here  with  tea and  chocolate  biscuits!


Ian Young  with Keith Wiley  - who was  himslef  made  an Associate  of  Honour  by  the  RHS   today- in  Gothenburg, where  they  were  both giving  talks.

Well done  Ian, I am VERY  proud  of  you! I would  have  loved to  have  been  able  to see  you given the  award  in  London- but  so pleased  that President  Julia Corden was  going to keep you company! Shame  you've  both been done  out  of  a  free lunch!

Very well deserved  indeed. Note also an award  for Peter Sandwell   who worked for Dundee parks including  running the Dundee flower show.
