Back copies of HPA Journals

The Himalayan Plant Association, founded in 1990, re-started in 2016, after a short gap due to the ill-health of its Editor & Secretary Chris Chadwell.
Back copies of issues 46-51 are available as pdfs sent by e-mail @ £5 each or £10 for 3.  Below you will find a summary of some of the contents of each along with the front cover illustrations.  Each journal typically contains about 50 pages with some 60 colour and a few black & white illustrations - remarkable value for the high quality, often unique content available - though why not actually join the association, with the benefit of access to the annual Seed Exchange.
