PALMERSTON NORTH

More than 3,500 plants, trees and shrubs will be sold at No Reserve by Turners Auctions Palmerston North this Saturday, 15th May.



Jeff Braid, from Turners Auctions says the massive No Reserve auction is expected to attract hundreds of bidders who are interested in acquiring top quality plants at a fraction of the original price.



“We are letting the buyers decide what they want to pay, so it is perfect picking for bargain hunters. Gardeners, farmers, home owners or anyone wanting premium quality plants should come along this Saturday to see what’s available,” says Jeff.



The plants are divided into 99 lots, which include everything from native Rimu and Kowhai trees, Silver Tree Ferns, flax bushes and non-natives such as Camellias, Magnolia and Aloe.



Jeff says the total retail value of the items up for auction on Saturday is more than $30,000 and describes it as one of the biggest plant auctions Turners has ever managed.


“Thanks to the sheer size of this auction, I’ve had interest from a wide range of potential bidders, including high-country farmers, lifestylers, landscape gardeners, city home-owners, and even green-fingered elderly who live in small units.”



The full list of plants can be found here and viewing prior to the auction is welcomed between 9am – 6pm on Thursday and Friday and again on the morning of the auction.


The auction will be held at 1.30pm, at Turners Auctions Palmerston North branch, Corner John F Kennedy Drive and Fairs Road, Milson, Palmerston North.
