Tributes to Jim Archibald

Jenny & Jim Archibald The Society is very sad to report the death of Jim Archibald, one of the Society's best known Plantsmen following a long illness.  He will be much missed by his many friends in the Alpine World.

Our thoughts are with Jenny and the family at this difficult time.

 Jim died at home in Ffostrasol, Wales on 9th August 2010, aged 68. Plantsman extraordinaire; much loved by all. The Funeral took place on Monday 16th August and it seems appropriate now to open up tributes to Jim on our website where we include Robertert Rolfe's funeral address:  'Jim's Life in Plants'.  Follow the link:
