Incredible Show Plant Auction

The Mike Hackett Succulent collection will be

Up for Auction on Saturday March 21th

at the Caro Desert (CDP West) Nursery

On Saturday March 21th 2009 there will be an auction of 102 of Mike Hackett’s extremely fine succulent plants. Many of these plants have been recent trophy winners in the last few Inter-City Shows. Most all of these plants are beautifully staged in bonsai or designer ceramic pots made by many of our famous potters. This is your special chance to get some of the seldom seen or extremely beautiful specimen succulents that we all can only rarely find. You do not want to miss this event as you will have a chance get plants rarely available, as well as, see the new Caro Desert Nursery (CDP West) and the, now returning, 8th Annual Potters sale. This event will be at the old CDP nursery address, now the Caro Desert Nursery (CDP West) , 9607 E. Ave S-12 Littlerock CA 93543. For directions please call 1-661-456-0787 or 661-406-9816, or visit and click on the Hackett Auction tab.
The auction will begin at 11:00 am and should conclude at about 12:30 pm. Viewing of all material will begin at 9:00 am and the auction will be conducted in a similar manor to all the previous CDP auctions. Woody Minnich will be the auctioneer and he will represent all electronic bidders. Written bids will begin at 10:00 am and the verbal auction starts at 11:00 am. During this time the wonderful potters will be selling there first of the year pots and the Caro Desert Nursery will be open for business. The potters and the Caro Desert Nursery will be open for business from 9:00 am until close at 5:00 pm and a barbeque will follow for those who would like to stay and socialize. Lunch and beverages will be available from about noon on. If you wish to stay for the barbeque please call Rene or Patty Caro (661-456-0787) and let them know so they may plan the overall dinner. This will be a super day for all cactus and succulent hobbyists in search of rare show plants, first of the year wonderful pots and those wishing to visit the new Caro Desert Nursery (CDP West)!
Often people want to know why is this person parting with their private collection of show quality plants? The answer to this question regarding Mike’s plants is that he and his wife Karine are, like so many of us right now, in need of extra finances because of personal medical issues. These medical issues are not life threatening but are important family concerns to the Hacketts. Mike has been collecting rare and specimen succulents for many years and has reached a point where he can thin down his collection to a point to where he still has some great stuff. This auction should be a win-win for everyone. To view some of these great plants go to Mikes Web site
