Exciting plant seekers' holiday with Raymond Evison
Raymond is very much looking forward to returning to China again. His first expedition there was in 1981 when he found 25 different clematis species. In 1998 he found 45 different clematis species, including a new plant to science - an inter-species clematis hybrid. However, Raymond's plant interests go way beyond the genus clematis and he is always very excited to find plants that he knows from cultivation in Europe actually growing in their native China.
This China Tour is certainly a chance in a lifetime opportunity for everyone.
The 2015 departure will be escorted by Christoper Bailes, former curator of RHS Rosemoor and the Chelsea Physic Garden and Raymond Evison, RHS Vice President and a world-leading clematis expert. See link for further details. Travel details.
