Another Chelsea gold for clematis grower
RAYMOND EVISON has once again won gold at the Chelsea Flower Show.
His display has also won the New Design Award for exhibits in Chelsea's Great Pavilion.
For decades now, Raymond Evison's sumptuous displays of Guernsey clematis at Chelsea – virtually all of them gold medal winners – have quietly flown the Guernsey flag in the world's most famous flower show.
This year, however, there is really no mistaking where the display comes from.
What is described as a 'Contemporary Sea Shore' scene, featuring forty different varieties of clematis and more than two thousand plants, are all arranged to appear as if they're floating on waves.
They are on a sea-bed base made of golden sand and Guernsey beach pebbles, brought over especially from the island, and silver mackerel cutouts dangle in between the profusions of blooms.
