I do not know how I am going to do it, or if I will be able to do it.
But I have decided that I cannot give up on the hope of growing upright fuchsia varieties for sale.
The number one thing that has stood in my way these last six years has been the necessity of being able to monitor fresh cuttings until they are rooted.
I don't know how many times now, that I have made thousands of cuttings, only to have to abandon them to work elsewhere.
At first, I am going to focus on the old standards. The basic simple reds and blues that grow so vigorously. And a few of the non-hybridized species.
Even this though, is weeks away from being able to happen since it is vital that I tend to the lavender first.
If you are inclined to help in the hopes of seeing me be able to offer small rooted starts again, then please help my other blog get noticed. ArtisansOfAmerica.info And click through to my Etsy store from the Pedricks page
Help me help others to get noticed. I am not asking you to buy anything.
All I am asking you to do is "follow" the blogs, the twitter, the Pinterest, and the Facebook pages.
Click on the links. Especially please click on the links to my Etsy store Pedricks
Clicking on links, following, "liking" posts, all of these things strengthen search engine connections and increase the possibility of coming up in a search. Website analytics literally tell me exactly where each and every click came from and what people were searching for.
In order for me to have hope of getting the fuchsia nursery started back up, I need to have the income from the lavender. Because then I can be at the nursery to monitor young cuttings and rooted starts.
I also need to rebuild the website for PedricksCorner so it can handle all of the new technology out there. That takes time and is something I could do and still be here to take care of the fuchsias.
