Auction of mostly succulents

Post by Bill » Sun Aug 12, 2018 11:25 pm

Posted on Behalf of Ian Robinson,

Following the death of one of our members there will be an auction of his plants on Saturday 22nd September in Broughton, Near Chester. It is a mainly succulent collection with a few cacti. There are some extremely show worthy and impressive plants which include some Agaves in large pots There are also a number of duplicates. The plants numbered in the attached list refer to some of the photographs with the same reference numbers, which can be seen at this link

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/u35v7czkal2d ... KJi9a?dl=0

The numbers on the photos are NOT lot numbers for the auction as plants will be sold in an order for convenience on the day. Plants will be sold as seen on the day. The numbered plants refer to the photographs which are provided to give an idea of size and condition and most of the remaining plants in the list are to be found somewhere in the photographs showing groups of plants.

For security reasons directions will be posted on BCSS announce and facebook pages in the week before the auction.
Direct any queries to igandjm.r@gmail.com

I hope to see you all at the auction.

Normally cash and carry, still trying to convince myself it's worth the 3 hour drive each way :eek: and the lost day :|
