The SRGC e-magazine 'International Rock Gardener'  No.9  for  September 2010  is online now.  This issue contains more tributes to the late Jim Archibald and and his work and includes photos of the plants being grown worldwide from Archibald seed, sent in by growers who really appreciated the  chance to grow these plants.
 
This photograph of Iris iberica ssp. lycotis grown from seeds he received from Jim and Jenny a few years ago is by Hans Achilles.
This Iris,  as with all  Hans'  bulbous plants, grows outside in the garden without any protection (either in winter or summer), despite of an annual rainfall of about 800 mm.
 
The seed of this delightful oncocyclus Iris from Iran, was collected by a Scotsman,  grown by a German living on Mallorca and is shared with gardeners from every country with an internet connection, all via the IRG ..... says it all really, doesn't it?

 The IRG Team would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our former SRGC President Glassford Sprunt both for his assistance with proof-reading the IRG and in compiling and Index  for the 2010 editions, which is appended to this month's .
This is a vital task for IRG - thank you, Glassford!

Thanks to all those who have contributed to the first year of IRG and to those who will  also make the coming year a pleasure for our readers!

From the IRG Team, wherever you are in the world, may you find peace and happiness now and in the year to come.
