The Great Dixter Charitable Trust runs an internationally renowned historic house and gardens near Rye, East Sussex. It is first and foremost a place of learning and the dynamic and innovative gardens have significant influence on the wider horticultural world. As an organisation we place a strong emphasis on inclusivity, community and outreach work. This influences the staff appointments that we make, the volunteers that we work with, the students we train and the local initiatives we support.
This auction is being held to help us to compensate for some of the loss of income which the Trust is facing as a result of Covid 19 and proceeds will go into a Lockdown Fund for this purpose. All the artists and makers have a strong association with Great Dixter. The Trust would like to thank them for so generously donating their work.

1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
