Just added: the "Treasures of Turkey" articles from the American Magazine "Horticulture" in 2005.

"Horticulture" - which has an online presence at www.hortmag.com - agreed to the SRGC use of the articles in the form printed originally. The publishers were kind enough to compliment the SRGC on this project; their representative saying it was a "lovely endeavor to honor your friend".

I'm gradually ploughing my way through Jim's old seed lists (many thanks to David Stephen's for his hard editorial graft) and if you haven't had a read of some of them yet you should, they really are a treat and particularly some of Jim's pithy Introductions. A good case here in the Summer 1991 edition where Jim, under the heading 'Post Mortem', waxes elequently about the organisation and cost of the 1991 6th International Rock Garden Conference.

The words 'leopard' 'changes' and 'spots' did spring to my mind!

Today, As well as the Master Seedlist update, with added photos,  there is also an addition to the "twin" articles
 of Jim's piece 'Inshriach in late summer and autumn', the first draft of the article that was to appear in the SRGC journal as 'Autumn Concerto' in the form of a letter from Jack Drake, owner of Inshriach, responding to the draft piece and raising some small points. :)

The letter from Jack Drake to Jim shows an affectionate master/pupil relationship, and how much Jim must have learnt from working at Inshriach. It highlights even more the great role that specialist alpine nurseries have played in the past and the way that knowledge can be passed on from individual to individual. Jim wrote about Jack Drake as one of his heros in March 1998 (Drake's sunset), and someone who knows and grows plants very well seems like a good hero to have.
