RHS statement on this award: Jim Archibald Award

After running a nursery for some years, Jim Archibald travelled the world collecting specimens and seeds. His annual seed lists offered a range of unusual and rare plants, and their introductions were always erudite, well informed and witty. This award in his name is presented by the RHS Alpine and Rock Garden Plant Committee in recognition of significant personal achievement relating to rock garden and alpine plants.

The 2022 Jim Archibald award was presented by the RHS Joint Rock Committee to  Jon Evans, in recognition of his photography and his work with educational displays of alpine plants.

Jon is familiar to many of us for his displays and also his diary entries for the AGS website.
