Anyone bought there plants from an auction? I'm thinking about going to one in about a month. Have you had good luck with auction plants?

I don't think those exist buddy. If they do, I've never heard of it. Then again, I don't frequent nurseries so I have no idea about their different methods of selling.

I've never bought a plant at an auction. I get ours at our local nursery. However, I suppose it would be worth taking a little risk if there's an exotic or rare plant you're looking for.

I live in an area with a lot of Amish people. The Amish (at least around here) have plant auctions, that are probably their overstock of what they sell to nurseries. I've bought a lot at these auctions. Everything from annual flowers to trees. Most of the stock is excellent. Buying at auction is like buying anyplace else, you have to know what you're buying and what it's worth. You can get great buys at auctions.

I've never really thought about plant auctions but now that you mention it that's a great idea. I'll keep an eye out
