Armitage Receives Scott Medal

Over the weekend, GG’s Contributing Editor Dr. Allan Armitage received the prestigious Scott Medal and Award from The Scott Aroboretum, which covers more than 300 acres of the Swarthmore College Campus near Philadelphia. The award recognizes outstanding national contributions to the science and art of horticulture.

“When I can receive the same honor as my horticultural hero, Liberty Hyde Bailey, I know that I am doing at least a few things right,” Armitage says. For more information on the award and The Scott Arboretum, visit
