Online Plant Auction Rules

1. To bid on auction items you must be registered with the Garden Shop 

2. The minimum starting bid is pre-set. The minimum incremental bid amount is also pre-set for each item.

3. There is no “Proxy” bidding (pre-setting a total $ amount, you are willing to bid on an item). Every time you are out bid you will need bid again so keep watching and refreshing your page, especially in the final minutes of the auction.

4. Once you have placed a bid it is locked in. You can not edit or remove the bid. Please make sure you are committed to the purchase when bidding.

5. Popcorn Bidding: If a bid is placed within the last 3 minutes of an auctions closing time, the deadline will be extended by 3 minutes. There will only be 5 extensions for each item.
