You may bid on as many plants as you wish by indicating the highest bid you wish to place on each plant. The amounts will differ for each.
CCRS Members will act as your Proxy at the October 22nd Auction. They will make every attempt to obtain each plant for you at the LOWEST possible price. In NO INSTANCE will they bid more than the highest bid you have indicated for that plant to the webmaster.
Minimum bid raise in all portions of the Auction is $1.

The webmaster will notify you of winning bids and the amount that you have spent at the Auction.
Winning Bidders will be responsible for ALL shipping charges in addition to the cost of the plant. Shipping charges are the least costly IMMEDIATELY after the Auction. However, if you live in an area with inclement weather, CCRS members will overwinter your plant at no additional charge until Spring 2018. YOU must notify the webmaster well in advance of when you would like your overwintered plants shipped to you in Spring 2018.
