Clematis is the "Queen of the Vines" and we are thrilled to announce that the undisputed "King of Clematis," Raymond Evison, will be visiting McArdle's and you are invited to our Garden Party Brunch to celebrate.
Enjoy a delicious light brunch by Watson's Catering while learning all about clematis and other garden gems. We know you will be inspired, so we take time to enjoy a private shopping experience and 20% off all clematis purchases.
Raymond Evison is considered the world's expert on clematis. A recipient of the extremely prestigious RHS Victoria Medal of Honor AND the Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II, he has won 24 Chelsea Flower Show Gold medals, 6 William Memorial Medals and 2 Lawrence Medals. He was also awarded the RHS The Reginald Cory Memorial Cup for developing new cultivars, and the Exporter of the Year Award at the Nurseryman & Garden Centre Awards.
Raymond, and his company Raymond J. Evison Ltd, have introduced many new clematis into cultivation for the world gardening market. This extends beyond 100 species and cultivars and includes over 70 cultivars bred and developed especially by his joint venture with Poulsen Roser A/S.
He has authored five books on the subject, as well as scores of newspaper and magazine articles.
Throughout his career, he has founded and participated in numerous horticultural societies, including the International Clematis Society, which he founded. He has staged exhibits and judged at leading flower shows in Canada and the US. Raymond considers it a great privilege to have been able to serve so many communities and to chair so many organizations. His knowledge of the wide field of horticulture from propagation, production, breeding, the wholesale and retail sectors of the industry and gardening in general has made him a sought-after expert worldwide. We couldn't be more pleased to have him with us on June 8th!
