Exclusive and special plants will be auctioned during the plants day. An auctioneer is in charge and allocates plants to the highest bidder. The profit is to the benefit of the Jelena de Belder Fund.
During the Jubilee Plant Day in the spring of 2005, a plant auction was organised for the first time in aid of the Jelena de Belder Fund Visitors and stallholders were enthusiastic about this initiative from the start. This positive reaction and the generous proceeds have made the plant auction a regular event. The organisation and form of the auction may change, but the aim remains the same: a plant event to publicise the fund, to raise money for the fund and to promote unusual plants.
