Subject: [pbs] RHS Award for Harold Koopowitz 

I thought people might like to know that PBS member Harold Koopowitz was 
presented with the Ralph B White Memorial Medal this afternoon at the Royal 
Horticultural Society's show in London. The presentation was made by RHS 
President, Elizabeth Banks, and was for raising a miniature split-corona 
daffodil called 'Itsy Bitsy Splitsy'. Not my cup of tea, but it was great to 
see Harold's work with daffodils being recognized. 

Also receiving an award, in her case the Peter Barr Memorial Cup for 
meritorious work with daffodils, was Kathryn Andersen from Pennsylvania - 
Kathy is also well-known as a lily and Clivia enthusiast, and is quite 
indomitable in pursuit of plants. 

There are pics (and much the same text) on my blog.
