Normally cash and carry, still trying to convince myself it's worth the 3 hour drive each way :eek: and the lost day :|
Yes it's just over 2 hours for us, shame I'm working, there looks to be some great plants

Firstly my sympathies to anyone who knew the collector.

As someone else posted earlier, if there was a chance to put in bids for things despite not being there I’d love to bid on a few things.

I don’t drive and at other end of country so no chance of getting there

Hope it goes well in any case. If the Crassula don’t sell, you know where to find me!

Thanks

popped along after staying in Chester for the weekend. A truly excellent Auction with some stunning and unusual plants.

Very well organised with refreshments available throughout the day. Just got home with a car full of plants and a much emptier wallet.

While some plants went for good money, some stunners went for bargain prices, perhaps in no small part due to the sheer volume of quality plants being auctioned.

A special thank you to all the organisers, family and auctioneer, and also those attendees who gave a willing hand to help load my car after paying, some plants were to heavy to be picked on my own.

I am sure I speak on behalf of all those who attended, when I say Thank You it was noted how hard the organisers worked throughout the day and it was a pleasure to be part of the event.

Very well done all

Regards
Stockport Dave
