Archibald Archive: Slides of Archibald plants?
« Reply #32 on: August 30, 2012, 09:31:27 PM »
Do you have photos of Archibald plants that you would like to contribute to the Archibald Archive but which are in slide form?
If so, you can send them to David Stephens who will convert them to digital for you.
Contact info@srg.org.uk to arrange this.   :)

Newly added to the archive:  'Raiser unknown: Eric Smith, a plantsman'

In this article, originally published by the Hardy Plant Society in 2000, Jim writes of some of the plants raised and named by Eric Smith and by himself.
Jim's text is illustrated here with photos added of a selection of those plants.   

 Kind thanks to all who have allowed the use of their photographs.  8) :-*

Thank you Maggi, David, Alan and all those contributing to this wonderful resource.  It exemplifies the unique value of online, dynamic reference material.
It brings me back again and again.

So well done all.  It is a splendid tribute to Jim and Jenny's work over many years.
