Auctions of holly and mistletoe cannot be deemed unique, but they certainly score highly for originality.
The annual sales at Tenbury Wells also deserve praise for longevity, for they have been held for some 160 years, which partly explains the sense of pride we at Nick Champion gain from staging them.
This is prime mistletoe country, for orchards have been a familiar theme on the local landscape and the plant loves setting up home in the boughs of an apple tree. Holly is the perfect complement to mistletoe, the pair being staple fare at Christmas, and so growers and gatherers assemble to trade the pair under the experienced guidance of our team.
Three auctions take place – on the last Tuesday of November and the first two Tuesdays of December – and entries are invited from growers of quality holly, mistletoe and Christmas trees, and makers of holly wreaths.
Wholesalers, retailers and the general public are all welcome to present lots or bid at the auctions we hold at Burford House Garden Stores, Burford, Tenbury Wells, WR15 8HQ – contact us for further information. Happy Christmas everyone!
Sale dates for 2018 - Tuesday 27th November, Tuesday 4th December and Tuesday 11th December.
