Plants shown and listed are for Auction on Sept. 25th at the IAS Annual
The auction will work in the following manner: Send Dewey Fisk
a *private message* listing the highest bids that you
are willing to pay for individual plants. You will then be in competition
with the bidding floor.
Example: You are willing to pay $150. for a plant but the highest bid on
the floor was $95. The bidding has been in $5. increments... Your bid of
$100. will be the sucessful bid. All bids will be confidential and will be
known only to the person on the floor that is bidding for you and, of
course, to Dewey.
You will be notified after the meeting if your bid was successful and its
amount. Shipping charges of between $3. & $5. will be added to your bid.
You will then send a check or Visa/Master Card information to the IAS and
the plant will be mailed to you via USPS Priority Mail.
