New PayPal Button On The Site!

    Yes, finally, after years of working to get back to having fuchsias for sale and keeping the collection of uprights alive for this day, today I put the PayPal button for direct sales from the website back up for F. boliviana.
    How else am I ever going to afford to buy a new ice-cream machine so I can make fuchsia berry ice-cream!?  I have been cooking them into a yummy syrup for weeks now and putting it onto vanilla ice-cream and even pancakes.  But I have been wanting to make ice-cream with the berries since forever.

     I have also noticed that the berries of Fanfare are huge and a beautiful pink color, so I cannot wait to try them.  But first I need to harvest them for seed and grow them, as this vigorous upright fuchsia not only has beautiful long tubular flowers, it appears to be very mite resistant.  A winner in my book!

Here are my pancakes!


And here is Fanfare

Fuchsia boliviana seedlings New Ad ready to go!

I put them onto Etsy first and will be adding them to the website in the next few days.  I wanted to ad the videos of the hummingbirds visiting the flowers, but haven't had time yet to edit them.
Here is a link to the ad: Fuchsia boliviana
FREE SHIPPING!

Because of the time of year, you will be purchasing at your own risk.  They might arrive damaged, depending on where you live.  But upright fuchsias are very hardy and ought to recover even if during the three days or less in transit means they sat on out in the heat somewhere.

Here is a photo of the babies!  Please visit the ad even if you don't plan on purchasing right now.  I have about 600 of them and another batch is up and will be ready by the cooler weather after the heat wave in the fall.  If you live in Zones 9-11, you'll be fine.  Or you can over winter them indoors in a window that gets full on sun.
