Horticulture auction house opens at Four Oaks Nurseries

Auctioneering brothers Nigel and Neil Ashley have teamed up with their colleague Roy Waller to open Ashley Waller Auctions at Four Oaks Nurseries in Cheshire.

They will be holding weekly auctions of horticultural produce and general household furniture, along with monthly machinery auctions and numerous specialist sales including off site dispersals. The new auction will be located at Four Oaks Nurseries, Lower Withington, Cheshire.

The site has 35,000 square feet of shed space on a 30 acre site with parking for up to 300 cars.

Auctions start on 10 May at 9am and will be weekly, selling bedding plants, pot plants, cut flowers, shrubs, vegetables, eggs and potatoes. A similar auction will be held every Thursday at 5pm onwards.

Neil Ashley said the auction would fill a gap in the market after the recent closure of nearby Chelford Market, owned by Wright Marshall, after landlords agreed the sale of the land for housing. Chelford Auctions has moved to Beeston Castle in Cheshire.

He said the auction house will sell 15,000-20,000 trays of bedding and other plants to traders, garden centres and other retailers, as well as garden owners.

Nigel Ashley said growers traditionally grew plants specifically for the sale.
