Congratulations to MPG member Melvyn Jope, who has been awarded the 2023 Jim Archibald Award! This is given annually by the RHS Alpine and Rock Garden Plant Committee in recognition of significant personal achievement relating to rock garden and alpine plants within the committee’s remit. Melvyn was nominated not only for his significant contribution over many years promoting cyclamen, but also for his research and leadership of field trips, involvement with MPG along with several other plant societies, and much more besides. A worthy recipient indeed. Photo by Sona Harrap shows Melvyn with Himantoglossum robertianum on the recent MPG wild flower tour of Cyprus
