Auctioning decoration materials

Decoration materials are products that are sold or processed by florist shops or garden centres. The products can be used in a flower, bouquet or plant. The term does not apply to related items such as tools, scissors or knives.

Please note! Always use the official name of 'decoration materials' when delivering your goods. So not, for example, 'presentation materials' or 'inorganic materials'.
