We hold Plant Sales at every evening meeting, except December, for our members and many of our guest speakers also bring plants along for sale.
Plant Sales at Evening Meetings
Members can bring along plants for sale at the evening meetings . These are either donated to be sold for HPS Middlesex Group funds or sold on behalf of the grower with a 10% commission to the Group.
The seller decides the price. Plants should be presented in clean pots, labelled with the plant name, some description of the plant and its cultivation. They can be any pot size from 3 inches up to 5 litres. Each label must be marked with price in multiples of 50p together with member’s initials. At any meeting, no more than 12 plants can be brought for sale by each member.
Members will also need to complete an invoice with the list of plants they are bringing for sales and their prices.
The form is available for download here
If the plant is not donated, then the selling price, less 10%, will usually be paid to the seller at the next meeting. Any unsold plants should be collected at the end of the meeting.
Public Plant Sales
HPSMG also holds three Public Plant Sales a year, where we have a wide selection of unusual, quality plants for sale at very reasonable prices. All the Sales take place in the Community Hut, St. Martin’s Car Park, Ruislip HA4 8BD. Sales are very popular so do get there early.
The 2019 Sales have now taken place. You can see pictures from the April 2019 Sale here.
We will be announcing the dates for 2020 later this year so do keep checking the website and our Facebook Page. HPSMG members will also receive information about the dates in our regular newsletter.
If you have plants you would like to sell at the Sales, members and non members can hire a table, subject to availability. We have seven available and these are allocated on a first come first served basis. We charge for £5 a table plus 10% of sales.
There is no limit on the number of plants you can sell. You just need to decide the selling price of your plants. It’s up to you whether you label the plants or not.
